Optimization of Process System - part II
PhD course, Dept. of Chemical Engineering


Optimization of process system part II
Feb-May 2014, PhD course at Chemical Engineering, Lund University
Course description:
This is a continuation of the course KET070F, Optimization of process system.
This course is focus on two parts:

     I.        alternative formulations of optimization problems and the properties of alternative solution methods

   II.        the technique and skill to formulate and reformulate optimization problems and solve them in a set of computer tools.
