Large-scale Nonlinear Programming in Chemical Process Engineering

L.T. Biegler
Chemical Engineering Department
Carnegie Mellon University
Pittsburgh, PA 15213

Optimization related to chemical processes provides a rich source of applications of active research areas in nonlinear programming. This talk highlights a number of case studies for which large-scale nonlinear programming formulations and solvers are essential. In particular, the talk highlights the optimization of dynamic systems including metabolic network works, polymerization reactions and reservoir estimation problems. The solution of these problems is aided by filter-based interior point nonlinear programming methods and extensions to deal with Math Programs with Equilibrium Constraints.
