A mathematical model of refinery operations characterised by complete horizontal integration of subsystems from purchase to product distribution.

Obviously, this does not guarantee the globally optimal operation of the refinery because several features in a single and integrated model are not considered. Each sub-problem of integrated refinery planning (IRP) has been modelled, solved and well-published in the literature. Currently, research efforts are directed towards integrating the sub-problems and solving the resulting problem. In this article, the IRP problem is introduced and the solution methods with results are then outlined. dc.format.extent 2 p. dc.language.iso eng dc.subject Àrees temàtiques de la UPC::Economia i organització d'empreses::Direcció d'operacions::Sistemes productius dc.subject Àrees temàtiques de la UPC::Matemàtiques i estadística::Investigació operativa::Optimització dc.subject.lcsh Petroleum refineries -- Management -- Mathematical models dc.title A mathematical model of refinery operations characterised by complete horizontal integration of subsystems from purchase to product distribution dc.type Article dc.subject.lemac Refineries de petroli -- Gestió -- Models matemàtics dc.contributor.group Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
