Selection of Controlled Variables for a Natural Gas to Liquids Process

  title={Selection of Controlled Variables for a Natural Gas to Liquids Process},
  author={M. R. Movahed Shariat Panahi and Sigurd Skogestad},
The aim of this work is to select the best individual or combined controlled variables (CVs) for a natural gas to hydrocarbon liquids (GTL) process based on the idea of self-optimizing control. The objective function is to maximize the variable income of the plant, and two modes of operation are studied. In mode I, where the natural gas flow rate is given, there are three unconstrained degrees of freedom (DOFs) and the corresponding individual self-optimizing CVs are selected as (i) CO2 removal… CONTINUE READING
