JModelica.org used for grade change optimization at Borealis
Submitted by jakesson on Fri, 2011-07-29 09:21
Plastics manufacturer Borealis uses JModelica.org to develop a decision support system for grade changes. As competition gets fierce and prices on raw materials and products fluctuate, the ability to quickly respond to new market conditions is put into focus. In a collaboration with the departmens of Chemical Engineering and Automatic Control at Lund University, Borealis develops a model-based decision support system where Modelica-models for polyethylene production are optimized using the JModelica.org platform. Key technologies are model calibration and dynamic optimization of economic cost functions.
