Determining the optimum number of trays in a distillation column has been an important process optimization problem for over fifty years. Over the past decade this problem has been addressed successfully as a mixed integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) problem. But tools for solving MINLPs are not widespread, especially in connection with detailed… (More)
