To solve the simultaneous process and fluid optimization problem for industrial applications, the two-stage CoMT-CAMD approach is implemented in CHEMASIM, the in-house flowsheet simulator of BASF SE. The required modifications of the method and t...
Rather the Rule than the Exception: Non‐Convex Pareto Sets and their Navigation in Distillation Processes
Von Wiley-VCH zur Verfügung gestellt
Novel algorithms for exploring Pareto sets are applied to distillation processes. Product purities are maximised while total heat duties are minimised. The illustrated Pareto set consists of both convex (blue dots) and non-convex (red dots) regions. This article shows how such Pareto sets can be navigated interactively using a ray tracing technique.
Novel algorithms for adaptive approximation and interactive navigation of Pareto sets are applied to various homogeneous distillation processes with recycle streams within an industrial flowsheet simulator. The adaptive approximation scheme shows that the Pareto set consists of both convex and non-convex regions when the product purities are maximised while minimising the total heat duties. It is illustrated how such Pareto sets can be navigated interactively using a ray tracing technique. Our results suggest that the occurrence of non-convex regions in the Pareto sets is due to recycle streams in the flowsheets and is therefore the rule rather than the exception in multi-objective optimisation of flowsheet simulations in chemical engineering.Zum Volltext
