Abstract

The paper presents a novel framework for the optimisation and synthesis of complex reactor networks that combines superstructure-based optimisation, semantic models and analytical tools. The work addresses the representation and extraction of process synthesis knowledge during the optimisation process with the purpose to simplify and interpret design results. The simplification is achieved with a gradual evolution of the superstructure and corresponding adjustments of the optimisation search. The interpretation is accomplished with the use of analytical tools to translate data into descriptive terms understood by users. Means of analysis include dynamic ontologies populated by computer experiments and continuously upgraded in the course of optimisation.
