Feasibility study of advanced process control (APC) system in refinery plants


Client: National Iranian Oil Refinery & Distribution Company (NIORDC)

Date: 2009-2010

Director project: Dr. Ali Khaki-Sedigh

Project associate members: Dr. Alireza Fatehi

Project type: Feasibility study

Project collaborator: K.N. Toosi University of Technology (KNTU)

Summary of project:

Advanced Process Control (APC) becomes the main part of any modern refinery plants of major oil production companies like BP, Shell, Chevron and so on. APC, like model predictive control (MPC), is an advanced control algorithm to manipulate the actuators in order to reach reliable and sustainable production. APC is widely used by control and automation provider companies like Honeywell, Yokogawa, Aspentech and so on, to control different units of the refineries worldwide, like in distillation column, Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) units. In this project, latest production and application of APC technologies by major control and automation companies have been studied. All the companies on the vendor list of NIRODC were investigated for any APC production. In addition, the applicability of different control algorithms is studied in the APC products of refinery industry.
