Integration of Design, Scheduling, and Control of Combined Heat and Power Systems: A Multiparametric Programming Based Approach
Additional Document Info
2018 Elsevier B.V. The operation of multiproduct/multipurpose processes involves decisions at different time scales; such as short-term for control, medium-term for scheduling, and long(er)-term for design. In this work, we present a methodology towards the unification of these decisions via multiparametric programming. Based on our previously introduced PARametric Optimization and Control (PAROC) framework, we derive (i) design dependent and scheduling aware control strategies, and (ii) scheduling strategies that are design dependent and control aware. We utilize the proposed methodology to simultaneously determine (i) the distributed control schemes for different operating policies and a range of different designs, and (ii) the coordination of operations in a network of two cogeneration of heat and power (CHP) units as a function of the constituent designs.
