Abstract

A fast method to optimize distillation column design is presented. Optimum column design and operating conditions can be obtained with a few iterations through a procedure of successive linear approximations to the optimum. The procedure can be applied to the design and rating of complex distillation columns to minimize overdesign. The method shows a high convergence rate and requires less computer time than other rigorous distillation optimization schemes.
