  • English
  • If sufficient demand
  • Provide insight into how process engineering optimization problems are formulated and what solution methods can be used and the behaviour of the methods.
  • Optimization is a fundamental tool in all process engineering development, design and research. Optimization is called the process of developing as good a solution as possible based on a target function. This course is focused on two parts: 1) The requirements for correctly formulated optimization problems and the understanding of the characteristics of corresponding solution methods, 2) The technique and the ability to formulate and reformulate process engineering problems to optimization problems and solve them.
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to classify various optimization problems as well as explain which types of solution methods can be used.
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • use and compare basic methods of optimization theory to solve process engineering optimization problems, especially those methods available in common computing tools such as MATLAB and Python.
Judgement and Approach
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • understand and reflect on how an optimization problem can be reformulated to another and show a deep insight into how optimization techniques can be used successfully in process engineering.
