Application of plantwide control to the HDA process. I—steady-state optimization and self-optimizing control


This paper describes the application of self-optimizing control to a large-scale process, the HDA plant. The idea is to select controlled variables which when kept constant lead to minimum economic loss. First, the optimal active constraints need to be controlled. Next, controlled variables need to be found for the remaining unconstrained degrees of freedom… (More)
