Semi-empirical process modelling with integration of commercial modelling tools
In: L. Puigjaner and A. Espuña (Eds.): ESCAPE-15 (European Symposium on Computer Aided Process Engineering) , Barcelona, Spain, 595-600
The paper presents an approach for semi-empirical (hybrid) modelling of partially unknown processes. Using the integration platform CHEOPS it is possible to integrate process unit models from different modelling tools. The method is applied to the case of an ethylene glycol process model, incorporating known unit models from general purpose modelling tools and a structured hybrid model from the semi-empirical modelling tool HybridTool.
