Abstract

The chemical industry has undergone significant transformation during the past 25 years due to the increased cost of energy, increasingly stringent environmental regulations and global competition in product pricing and quality. The main objective of a process design is to create a process that is economical, safe, and environmentally benign throughout the whole lifetime of the plant. One of the most important engineering tools for addressing these issues is optimization. Modifications in plant design and operating procedures have been implemented to reduce costs and meet constraints, with an emphasis on improving efficiency and increasing profitability by using computer integrated manufacturing, or CIM. To apply optimization effectively in processing plant, both theory and practice of optimization must be understood. Appropriate meshing of the optimization technique and the model are essential for success in optimization. Over the last 10 years much effort has been devoted to the study of optimization strategies of either selected sections or entire chemical plant involving both continuous and integer variables. Several algorithms have been proposed and large numbers of research applications have been presented. However, only a few applications have been reported with process simulation. This study presents a review of the concepts/application of optimization techniques. In addition, it discusses optimization software and process simulator that offers the most potential for successful and reliable results. 2010 Asian Network for Scientific Information.
