Optimization

This is the hierarchical structure of Optimization section that has been carried out at PSE-Lab since the ’90s.

  • Offline optimization
    • Optimal design of specific and customized process units
    • Optimal design of chemical plants
    • Optimal trajectory of process variables in batch processes
      • Batch distillation
      • Drying processes in pharma industry
  • On-line optimization
    • Data analysis and pre-processing
      • from in- on- at-line data
      • Statistical analysis for trends, indicators, and outliers
    • Data Reconciliation (classical approach) and Gross error detection
    • Model identification and coaptation
    • Optimization of sections/whole plants
      • Degrees of freedom
      • Upper and lower bounds
      • Linear and non-linear constraints
      • Constrained and unconstrained problems
  • Supervision of operating conditions
    • Interaction with the control system and control loops
    • Economic scheduling and planning of operations
  • Applications to pharmaceutical companies and incineration plants
