Téma leírása

The digital twin concept is widely applied in petrochemistry. A digital twin basically models the behaviour of production plants at the physical and chemical level. From our perspective, the presence of a digital twin makes it possible to enhance real world production by involving in silico optimization. We work on a global optimization framework that connects to external chemical modelling software via a software interface. It means that we utilise an external software that models the underlying chemical process.

Our primary goal is to conduct optimization for business goals. It means that the costs and revenues are also embedded in the models. This is how we can optimize the revenue.

The student can work on the following topics.

  • Advanced local search algorithms
  • Global optimization techniques
  • Deep reinforcement learning techniques
