Chemical plants have to be designed based on uncertain thermodynamic, kinetic and equipment performance correlations, market forecasts, raw material and product prices. They have to be able to adjust to changes in operating conditions, disturbance levels, product specifications, product distribution and demand, and they should be able to tolerate equipment malfunction without leading to serious safety hazards. The general term "operability" will be used to describe the ability of the plant to… 
Design of chemical plants with multiregime capabilities and robust dynamic operability characteristics
Abstract Most chemical plants go through various steady-state regimes during their operation mainly due to economic reasons dictated by changing plant conditions. If the dynamics of such plants are
Optimisation and controllability assessment of a chemical manufacturing plant using design reliability theory
TLDR
This paper presents case studies that show the implementation of Design reliability theory in the design and operational constraints of a chemical manufacturing plant.
An index for operational flexibility in chemical process design. Part I: Formulation and theory
One of the key components of chemical plant operability is flexibility—the ability to operate over a range of conditions while satisfying performance specifications. A general framework for analyzing
Analysis of process operability at the preliminary design stage
Abstract A hierarchical procedure is presented for assessing the steady-state operability of a process. The method can be applied as new processes are being designed, or it can be used as a
Heat exchanger network process modifications for controllability using design reliability theory
TLDR
The case study treated in this paper shows that design reliability theory is a useful tool for determining HEN constraint violations that will require special attention from a control point of view, that is controllability analysis.
Environment and control issues in design
Abstract The basic principles guiding the operation of the processing units of a chemical process are based on the following objectives. Safe operation of the processing units. Specified production
An index for operational flexibility in chemical process design. Part I
One of the key components of chemical plant operability is flexibility the ability to operate over a range of conditions while satisfying performance specifications. A general framework for analyzing
Optimization-based Formulations for Operability Analysis and Control of Process Supply Chains
Process operability represents the ability of a process plant to operate satisfactorily away from the nominal operating or design condition, where flexibility and dynamic operability are two
Synthesis and optimisation of biomass-based tri-generation systems with reliability aspects
Tri-generation systems are utility systems which produce heat, power and cooling simultaneously. Use of tri-generation systems in industrial sites reduces the importation of power and improves local
Dynamic Flexibility Analysis of a Distillation Column
TLDR
Basic tools are provided to become more confident with flexibility analysis in general and in particular the dynamic one that has rarely been discussed in literature is discussed.

Design of resilient processing plants—II Design and control of energy management systems
Abstract The “standard heat exchanger network problem” has been surprisingly difficult to solve. It is only now that simple and reliable methods have evolved to synthesize the most efficient network
Design of resilient processing plants—III: A general framework for the assessment of dynamic resilience
Abstract With increased process integration it has become very important to evaluate and compare the dynamic operability characteristics (dynamic resilence) of alternate designs. Based on recent
Flexibility and resiliency of process systems
Abstract Because chemical plants are never operating at the nominal design conditions or at a steady state it is important to include aspects of flexibility, operability and control into the design
Design of resilient processing plants—I Process design under consideration of dynamic aspects
TLDR
A design approach is proposed which considers economic and dynamic aspects simultaneously and optimisation of dynamic behaviour is achieved by a bounding technique based on Lagrangian theory taking advantage of the typical modular structure of processing installations.
Optimum design of chemical plants with uncertain parameters
A new strategy is proposed for the optimum design of chemical plants whose uncertain parameters are expressed as bounded variables. The design is such that the plant specifications will be met for
Optimization strategies for flexible chemical processes
The objective of this paper is to give an overview of the optimization strategies that are required when designing chemical processes in which the existence of regions of feasible steady-state
Optimal synthesis of flexible utility systems
The problem addressed in this paper is the one where a complex of chemical plants has demands of electricity, power for drivers and steam at various levels of pressure such that these demands take
Optimal design of flexible chemical processes
Abstract Practical ways are still needed for optimizing the design of chemical processes, with allowance for uncertain specifications and future changes in economic parameters. This problem fits the
