Coordinating Optimisation of Complex Industrial Processes

Project Description

The vision of COCOP project is that complex process-industry plants are optimally run by operators with the guidance of a coordinating, real-time optimisation system.The project objective is to enable plant-wide monitoring and control by using the model-based, predictive, coordinating optimisation concept in integration with plant’s automation systems. The project involves in its consortium two universities, three research organisations, the leading copper-plant technology provider, steel and special chemicals companies and for SMEs providing automation solutions.

IDENER contributions

  • System requirements specification: IDENER coordinate the WP2 “Requirements”. A system requirement specifications document will be written including scenarios and use cases, and communication protocols for the developed system and integrative platform. 
  • Modelling: IDENER is leader of model specifications for case processes task. In this task unit operations/subprocess (including economic and/or environmental) needed to make up the plant-wide model in each case will be defined. Model specifications will investigate how to tackle different time scales/problems.
  • Optimization and implementation: IDENER participates in sub problems optimization, coordinating optimization and runtime system implementation.
