Optimization of sub-ambient separation systems with embedded cubic equation of state thermodynamic models and complementarity constraints
We use exact derivatives and large-scale nonlinear programming algorithms to solve large flowsheet design problems with many degrees of freedom, including the simultaneous design of air separation units (ASUs) and their accompanying multistream heat exchangers. Expand
