Optimization of complex chemical continuous processes
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2015
The presentation will give a prospective about usage of rigorous dynamic models from industrial perspective.
Chemical industry is faced to rapid changes where the automation in combination with more intensified, flexible and compact processes and diversified products, based on renewable raw-materials, will play utmost important role. Dynamic modeling and simulation of chemical processes have historically been used in process control, process design and especially of batch processes, though in recent years in Operating Training Simulators (OTS). Future usage of dynamic simulation will include besides process control of fast transient processes and OTS even areas that links Business and Process Operations.
In my presentation I will show few industrial examples in areas such as Hysis usage in OTS,its pros and cons comparable to some other simulator packages , optimization of processes in simulation environment, both in dynamic and steady state regimes, as well as example of optimization of product storage and buffers tanks.
