Global Optimization for the Phase Andchemical Equilibrium Problem : Application to the Nrtl

  author={EQUATIONConor M. McDonald and Christodoulos A. Floudas},
Several approaches have been proposed for the computation of solutions to the phase and chemical equilibrium problem when the problem is posed as the minimization of the Gibbs free energy function. None of them can guarantee convergence to the true optimal solution, and are highly dependent on the supplied initial point. Convergence to local solutions often occurs, yielding incorrect phase and component distributions. This work examines the problem when the liquid phase is adequately modeled by… CONTINUE READING
