Input–Output Models of Industrial Plants
Physical input–output models can be used to aid in the synthesis (design) or operations of industrial plant. In this chapter, the use of such models is illustrated for the case of polygeneration plants. The first example illustrates a zero degree of freedom synthesis problem. A second example illustrates how an input–output model can be used to identify process bottlenecks in existing plants. A third example discusses a mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) formulation of an input–output model to optimize state operations when the system is subjected to a disruptive event. LINGO code is provided for all examples.
