A countless of different multivariable control techniques, ranging from decentralized PID to predictive controls, are presented in several literatures and applied to chemical plants. This work intends to present a study developed using a control solution based on optimal control, applied on a heat exchanger network (HEN) with bypasses. The HEN is frequently(More)
Nowadays, there are a lot of different control methodologies that could be used within industrial processes. Some of these methodologies have a complex design and also demands an extra engineering effort to design the controller with a superior performance. Some other controllers may not lead to a desirable performance although they are too easy to design.(More)
