Successful industrial key studies of integrated design and control
Additional Document Info
The features and the potential of a integrated optimization-based methodology to identify optimal design and control schemes for complex industrial systems are discussed. The methodology provides a design that can guarantee feasibility and operability at a minimum total average cost. The application of this methodology in industrial applications which include, an air separation plant, an adsorption column, and reactive distillation system is also discussed. The features of this methodology include, employment of high fidelity dynamic models for the prediction of the transient process behavior, and treatment of uncertainty via two-stage decomposition techniques.
