(357e) Towards Safe and Operable Process Intensification Systems
This work presents a strategy for the systematic assessment of the safety and operability performance of intensified process systems. Utilizing the PARametric Optimization & Control (PAROC) Framework , we are able to benchmark and compare PI systems. Firstly, we develop high-fidelity dynamic models of conventional and the equivalently derived intensified designs. Based on these models, we derive optimal control policies using multiparametric programming and define and compare the regions of operation of the aforementioned systems. Safety considerations are incorporated in the control design problem from which the failure and consequence severity are quantified [7,10]. The proposed approach is highlighted through a reactive separator case study.
