A novel nonlinear programming (NLP) strategy is developed and applied to the optimization of diierential algebraic equation (DAE) systems. Such problems, also referred to as dynamic optimization problems, are common in chemical process engineering and remain challenging applications of nonlinear programming. These applications often consist of large,(More)
This paper presents the optimal control policy of an industrial low-density polyethylene (LDPE) plant. Based on a dynamic model of the whole plant, optimal feed profiles are determined to minimize the transient states generated during the switching between different steady states. The industrial process under study produces LDPE by high-pressure(More)
