Control Design Tools for Intensified Solids Handling Process Concepts
The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) can be applied to generate new concepts for process intensification (PI). In order to meet the target performance of the intensified process and to avoid design bottlenecks due to process operation, the suggested concepts need to comprise a feasible control system. Therefore, a design step, where a systematic procedure for variable selection is performed, available measurement devices are mapped, and the control design is initialized, is needed. This chapter presents a systematic approach to tackle these issues in a structured manner in order to enable a smooth transfer from new innovative ideas into feasible process design from operation point of view.
