Interactive Multi-Objective Optimization of Simulated Moving Bed Processes using IND-NIMBUS and IPOPT
2006 (English)Report (Other academic)
In this paper, efficient optimization techniques are used to solve multi-objectiveoptimization problems arising from Simulated Moving Bed (SMB) processes. SMBsare widely used in many industrial separations of chemical products and they arevery challenging from the optimization point of view. With the help of interactivemulti-objective optimization, several conflicting objectives can be considered simul-taneously without making unnecessary simplifications as has been done in previousstudies. The optimization techniques used are the interactive NIMBUS R methodand the IPOPT optimizer. To demonstrate the usefulness of these techniques, theresults of solving an SMB optimization problem with four objectives are reported.
