  • The importance of selecting controlled variables appropriately for an entire process has long been recognized. However, because of its combinatorial nature, finding an optimal set of controlled variables requires solving a large number of nonconvex optimization problems, a computationally intensive task for any realistic chemical process. In this paper, we propose a shortcut method to eliminate poor choices and to generate and rank attractive alternatives without solving optimization problems… CONTINUE READING
