Network Theory for Chemical Processes

Network Theory for Chemical Processes The concept of a network theory proposed in this paper provides a basis for systematically addressing questions concerning the design and operation of integrated processes. The route to a problem solution is characterised by the following steps. Modular process structuring takes place on hierarchically ordered levels by coupling of couponents and linkage elements. The process module are coupled mass‐ and energy‐wise by means of opposing potential and current vectors. The linkage which is coupled one‐sidedly and is hence reaction‐free is a special case. Process modelling utilises modular process structuring and assigns the structural modules to behaviour‐describing modules. Process analysis examines structural properties (stability, controllability, observability, sensitivity) and nonlinear phenomena (igniton and extinction; boundary cycles, waves, chaos) of the overall process behaviour. Process design considers the layout and control of processes from holistic vantage points and aims at optimum determination of the nature, number, and coupling of all the components and linkage elements of an integrated process in the light of a given production goal. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Chemical Engineering & Technology (Cet) Wiley

Abstract

The concept of a network theory proposed in this paper provides a basis for systematically addressing questions concerning the design and operation of integrated processes. The route to a problem solution is characterised by the following steps. Modular process structuring takes place on hierarchically ordered levels by coupling of couponents and linkage elements. The process module are coupled mass‐ and energy‐wise by means of opposing potential and current vectors. The linkage which is coupled one‐sidedly and is hence reaction‐free is a special case. Process modelling utilises modular process structuring and assigns the structural modules to behaviour‐describing modules. Process analysis examines structural properties (stability, controllability, observability, sensitivity) and nonlinear phenomena (igniton and extinction; boundary cycles, waves, chaos) of the overall process behaviour. Process design considers the layout and control of processes from holistic vantage points and aims at optimum determination of the nature, number, and coupling of all the components and linkage elements of an integrated process in the light of a given production goal.
