This work addresses the model-based optimization of the operation procedure of a fed-batch emulsification process in a stirred vessel. The computation of the input trajectories (i.e. the stirrer speed and the oil flow addition rate as function in time), for reaching a certain predefined, terminal, drop size distribution (DSD) in minimum time, is studied. It(More)
This paper discusses a two-level strategy integrating dynamic trajectory optimization and control for the operation of chemical processes. The benefit of an online dynamic re-optimization of operational trajectories in case of disturbances is illustrated by a case study on a semi-batch reactive distillation process producing methyl acetate.
In this paper an approach for flexible production scheduling for continuous multi-grade chemical processes is proposed. The approach integrates the economics of production and of company–market interaction for single-machine multi-grade continuous processes. The operation of a continuous multi-grade plant is modeled utilizing the detailed inclusion of grade(More)
In this paper an approach for flexible production scheduling for continuous multi-grade chemical processes is proposed. The approach integrates the economics of production and of company-market interaction for single-machine multi-grade continuous processes. The resulting grade transitions are realized using a newly developed closed-loop stochastic MPC(More)
