Selecting the Target Transformations in the Design of Chemical Production Systems

  • V. A. Naletov
Organization of Production


The design of production systems at chemical plants is considered. Attention focuses on the selection of the target transformations of materials within a virtual system. The information approach is adopted in an algorithm for step-by-step selection of the target processes and their optimal integration within the virtual system. The key feature of this algorithm is that it allows to use general principles for the distribution of the system’s functions between its elements and subsystems to ensure optimal integration of the target processes. Those principles were described in previous works. As an example, the algorithm is employed in the optimal organization of a system for converting lignite to synthesis gas, with specified proportions of the key components.
