The presence of uncertainty in process systems is one of the key reasons for deviation from set operation policies, resulting in suboptimal or even infeasible operation. As these uncertainties realize themselves on different time scales such as on a control, scheduling or design level, an integrated, comprehensive approach to consider uncertainty is required. Thus, in this contribution we demonstrate PAROC (PARametric Optimization and Control), a novel unified framework for the design, operational optimization and advanced model-based control of process systems, which decomposes this challenging problem into a series of steps, shown in the Figure below [ 1].
