From the 14th to 16th of May we had a very succesful MOSAIC Workshop in Milano, directly following the CAPE Forum. The CAPE Forum for young researchers is meant to attract young science and engineering talents in a particular format to allow exchange of cutting edge ideas on how to advance process engineering. With MOSAIC we provide a very systematic approach to modeling, simulation, and optimization that will help process engineers to reduce the time needed for modeling process systems.
In our MOSAIC Workshop ‘Process Simulation and Optimization of Chemical Plants’ we covered different topics including ‘Distillation Column Modeling’, ‘Linear and Nonlinear Optimization’, and ‘Optimal Control’. The course certificates have been prepared and will be delivered to the participants soon. We thereby want to thank all the attendees for their active participation and especially Davide Papasidero and Prof. Flavio Manenti from Politecnico di Milano for their excellent organization and support before and during the workshop. The cooperation, also based on the strategic partnership between the TU-Berlin and the Politecnico di Milano, is directly continued by Prof. Manenti’s research visit as a ‘Humboldian’ from June to August 2014 in Berlin at our ‘Chair of Process Dynamics and Operation (DBTA)’.
