Integrated tools for system modeling, simulation, control, and optimization

The GIMSCOP research activities aim at the development of practical methodologies to improve process operations and design. The distinguishing feature of this approach is to treat modeling, optimization and control in a unified framework, exploting their sinergism to stablish better understanding and control of process operations. In this talk, the main activities of the GIMSCOP research grupo will be presented, emphazising the development of an equation-oriented dynamic simulator and optimizer (EMSO,
