Abstract

This study seeks to pave the way of designing and implementing a Domain-Specific Language (DSL) for controllability analysis of a chemical process design. Chemical processes are nonlinear continuous/discrete dynamic systems that are subject to considerable uncertainties and variations during their design and operation. These systems are designed to operate at an economically optimal steady-state. However, changing the value of the process parameters may cause deviations and elicit dynamic responses from processes. Generally, the ability of holding a process within a specified operating regime is called controllability. In this study a Petri net based DSL is designed specifically for controllability evaluation of process designs with an application to a flowsheet case study.
