5 Dynamics and control of generalized integrated process systems
The purpose of this chapter is to create a general framework that captures the dynamic effect of the simultaneous presence of both significant material recycle streams and purge streams. We will use this result presented in (Baldea and Daoutidis 2007) to rationalize at the theoretical level the development and use of a hierarchical process control structure, consisting of several interconnected control and optimization layers.
5.2 System description and modeling
In order to generalize the discussion of the process structures discussed in Chapters 3 and 4, let us consider the class of processes in Figure 5.1. This generic structure consists of S + 1 units and ...
