Workshop on
Simulation in Industrial Process Engineering

Aim of the workshop:

The simulator BOP (Block Oriented Process Simulator) is a software package for the static and dynamic simulation of complex tasks in process engineering, which can be modeled by differential algebraic equations. The simulation concept of BOP is based on a hierarchical, modular structured process model and provides an efficient solution also for large-scale systems. It allows to perform steady state and transient simulations, Monte Carlo, correction-curve, optimization, and homotopy calculations. The research group ''Stochastic Algorithms and Nonparametric Statistics'' has contributed to the implementation and statistical consulting of some of the new features.

It is no coincidence that this workshop takes place shortly after the 60th birthday of Jürgen Borchardt, member of WIAS since 1992. During his career he contributed significantly to the development and implementation of efficient numerical methods for the solution of large systems of differential algebraic equations used in the simulator BOP. Not least due to his continuous commitment, a long term industrial cooperation between the Weierstrass Institute and Alstom Power Ltd. could be sustained. The workshop gives an insight into the industrial requirements and challenges, and discusses possible future directions.
