Knowledge Assisted Optimization for Production Scheduling Based on Simulation and Metamodeling

In industries, chemical processes involve different plants running in parallel with different production rates under the strict constraints on available resources. Therefore, events like shutdown of one or more plants, operating plants with different production grades with flexible run length time, different equipment utilization rates of plants are vital to be studied, scheduled, and optimized. CADSIM Plus is a software tool, which simulates different chemical processes in industries and thus ensures an effective production in practice.

Investigation and Development of Globally Convergent Methods for Solving Multiple Non-Linear Functions

Aurel Systems Inc. offers a commercial dynamic process simulation program called CADSIM Plus™ (www.aurelsystems.com). At several places in the program sets of nonlinear equations must be solved or nonlinear functions must be minimized (for example, solving pressure flow networks, solving for independent variables given sets of user defined dependent variables, solving for both temperatures on a heat exchanger with condensation or flash).
