Model-Based Optimization of Industrial Processes
Optimization Research Group, Mathematics Department, Linköping University
Paid master thesis project
Frontway is a small company with high technical competence, specializing in developing model-based optimization solutions for Swedish Process industry, e.g. for large paper mills found in the Norrköping-Linköping Area. For example, reducing energy consumption by choosing optimal flow directions and other parameters is a very relevant question.
This can be possible using software solutions to do detailed modeling of the system, simulate the system energy consumption, and change the model to reduce the simulated energy consumption.
The objective of the master thesis project is to make a small pilot study on minimization of energy consumption for a selected subsystem. The subsystem should be modeled with the help and
guidance of Frontway specialists, optimization criteria selected and formulated (guided by Prof. Kaj Holmberg), and optimization test cases run. Some modeling, some software development, and some optimization is involved.
This master thesis project offers a salary paid by Frontway AB.
