The aim of this study is to obtain a dynamic modelling and simulation of a Portuguese industrial integrated system composed of three different processes. This work includes the analysis of the optimal integration of the different units, and the study of the effect of some operational and atmospheric conditions on the system to maximize its global thermal(More)
A distributed dynamic model was built using gPROMS 2.3.7 language for an integrated Process including a cogeneration system, a plate heat exchangers set and a salt recrystallization process. It was analyzed the effect of a simulated spray system model on the integrated process, by comparing the global performance of the system with and without sprays. Due(More)
In this work we address the integration of Engineering Process Control (EPC) and Statistical Process Control (SPC) in complex multivariate scenarios with dynamics (autocorrelation). There are essentially two different integrative approaches: one in which an SPC supervision mechanism is used, without interfering, with an EPC controller active continuously(More)
The aim of this study is to perform a dynamic modelling and simulation of a Portuguese industrial integrated system in order to analyse the integration and feasibility of the different units, maximizing its efficiency and minimizing its environmental damage, and to study the effect of some operational and atmospheric conditions on the system. For this(More)
A cogeneration system is used to produce hot water to heat up the high concentrated brine solution produced inside an integrated industrial salt plant. A part of that high concentrated brine solution could be sprayed into the surrounding ambient air, a few metres above the solar and thermal salt recrystallization ponds to increase the global process(More)
