Introduction

Process industries have a very complex nature. With the more stringent safety and environmental regulations, more expensive resources (e.g. chemicals, energies, water), and more competitors, every industry is on constant pursuit of optimum operations.   This course will introduce the participants to formulate industrial problems into optimized solutions, to know which solution techniques to use, and to be able to use simple yet powerful approach/method/software to optimize our processes.   In this course, the participants are strongly encouraged to bring along their industrial problems to solve during the class.  

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able:
  • To introduce the skill to develop mathematical models and to formulate optimization problems in industrial processes
  • To demonstrate systematic problem solving involving Linear Programming, Integer Programming, and Non-Linear Programming, using analytical techniques and computational tools
 

Trainers

  Picture3 Dr. Zulfan Adi Putra, is a senior lecturer at the Chemical Engineering Department of Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Malaysia. His areas of teaching and research are process synthesis and design, process modeling and simulation, process optimization, pinch analysis, and process integration. For almost a decade before being a lecturer, he was a process engineer and a consultant for various chemical companies in The Netherlands such as Trespa International, AkzoNobel, SABIC, Momentive, SC Johnson, DSM, and Hexion. He has been involved in different phases of chemical lifecycle such as research and development, feasibility studies, conceptual design, basic engineering, plant modeling and optimization, troubleshooting, as well as techno-economic analysis.   Mr. Shahrul Azman Zainal Abidin, (CEng FIChemE) is a Custodian Engineer in the area of Process Simulation and Optimization at PETRONAS Group Technical Solutions. He graduated as a Chemical Engineer from California State University, Long Beach, USA in 1998 and received an MSc Gas Engineering degree from University of Technology Malaysia in 1996. He is a Fellow of IChemE and Senior Member of AIChE with twenty four years of experience in project & engineering management and specializing in process modelling and optimization of oil & gas facilities. Apart from developing PETRONAS owned process simulation software, iCON, he has developed and patented an Integrated Separation System Sep-iSYS for Slug handling, Sand, Inlet Heating and 3 Phase Separation technologies that are installed particularly suited for upstream oil & gas production facilities.
