The PhD level course ”Process and Tools Integration” took place at CAPEC from the 12-19 September, 2012. The course lecturers were Dr. Jeff Siirola from Purdue University, West Lafayette IN, USA, from the 12-14 September and Dr. Zdravko Kravanja from the University of Maribor, Slovenia, from the 17-19 September.
The entire course consisted of six (6) days of lectures. The first three (3) days consisted of lectures based on ”Process Synthesis Review” inclusive of ”Process Synthesis and Design”, ”The Integration of Process Design and Control Systems Design” and ”Outlook And Challenges” with respect to process synthesis from an industrial perspective.
The last three (3) days consisted of lectures based on ”Process Synthesis And Optimization” inclusive of ”Heat Integration-A Mathematical Programming Approach”, ”MINLP Synthesis of HEN Networks” and ”Simultaneous Optimization (Design)/Synthesis And Heat Integration”.
The course was attended by both in house (the DTU) and visiting PhD and MSc students and provided ample food for thought and application with respect to ”Process Synthesis, Design And Optimization”, for the students. Highlights of the course can be seen below.
