(446d) Development of a Kinetic Model-Based Tool for Enhanced Process Understanding and Justification
AIChE Annual Meeting
Thursday, November 18, 2021 - 10:06am to 10:27am
In this presentation, we illustrate the development of a kinetic model-based tool that is utilized to obtain enhanced process understanding and to support the control strategy. Combination of a kinetic model with a spreadsheet-based, user-friendly template provided the ability to predict the impact of parameters on the process outputs in cases when one or more parameters are simultaneously changed from their nominal values. The tool was also utilized to identify potential failure points. Enhanced process understanding generated by utilizing this tool was implemented in the process control strategy to improve process robustness at the commercial manufacturing scale.
