Abstract

Advanced process design leads to more complicated flowsheets, hence it requires an early assessment of process operability and controllability. In order to put the process control engineers on a par with the process designers, the software prototype ‘EPIC’ has been developed. It has the following main features: a library of dynamic process models; tools for the analysis of process stability and controllability; tools for selecting control structures and for designing control systems, and a visualization of these structures (the ‘PIM’ table).

The paper introduces a methodology for integrated process and control design and discusses the potential contributions of ‘EPIC’.
