Hydrocracker process control strategy for the past two decades has focused on installing automatic depressurization systems and multivariable controllers (MPC). While these have brought important gains, experience now shows this leaves many gaps in excursion control and depressure prevention. This article presents an updated hydrocracker control model that robustly addresses traditional hydrocracker control challenges, overcomes outdated hydrocracker control paradigms, and allows hydrocrackers to operate safely, reliably, and profitably, under today’s and tomorrow’s ever more demanding conditions.
