Summary

 

Advanced Process Operations - CENG97007

Aims

This advanced course provides the student with the ability to formulate, solve and interpret meaningful optimization problems embedding dynamic systems. Emphasis is placed on understanding conditions for optimality as well as commonly available solution techniques. Software package s are used for solving realistic engineering problems.

Process Model Solution and Optimisation - CENG96011

Aims

The aim of this course is to introduce the students to advanced numerical methods for the solution and optimisation of both linear and nonlinear systems, so that they are able to apply them in real chemical engineering problems. The students will learn about optimisation theory. They will also learn how to formulate optimisation models for linear and nonlinear problems, select an appropriate solution method, and compute a numerical solution. The numerical software tools are Matlab and GAMS.
