Module overview

The module aims to provide students with a detailed understanding of advanced modelling and simulation tools applied to chemical engineering. The module will develop concepts of process modelling, process design, and process control and will apply advanced mathematical modelling and optimisation to chemical engineering applications, with the aim of synthesising and optimising processes. The module will also further the students’ knowledge of advanced control techniques, and will cover methods such as feedforward, cascade, and model predictive control. The module will prepare students to deal with complex systems and to apply detailed process modelling, optimisation and control methods to a wide variety of process operations using different computational tools.
