Mathematical modelling and simulation of a styrene plant was made for the synthesis of a regulatory control structure for the purpose of replacing the existing one. The structural model was constructed considering the differential and algebraic relations describing the process. Utilizing the structural model, alternative feasible control structures were determined by integer linear programming (ILP) techniques developed in this study. The ILP formulations developed were proved to be very efficient in generating structurally controllable alternative feasible control configurations. The performances of the alternative structures were evaluated by utilizing the gain information obtained by steady-state modelling and using the interaction criteria RGA, NI, SVD, IMCIM and RDG. Thus, a systematic procedure for synthesizing regulatory control structures for a large-scale process is established by utilizing ILP1 and ILP2 formulations which are the modified versions of the MILP formulations proposed by Georgiou and Floudas (81st AIChE Annual Meeting 1989). The necessary improvements in MILP formulations were made in order to make them applicable for a large-scale system.

AN INTEGRABLE FAMILY OF MONGE-AMPERE EQUATIONS AND THEIR MULTI-HAMILTONIAN STRUCTURE
NUTKU, Yavuz; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür (1993-01-01)
We have identified a completely integrable family of Monge-Ampère equations through an examination of their Hamiltonian structure. Starting with a variational formulation of the Monge-Ampère equations we have constructed the first Hamiltonian operator through an application of Dirac's theory of constraints. The completely integrable class of Monge-Ampère equations are then obtained by solving the Jacobi identities for a sufficiently general form of the second Hamiltonian operator that is compatible with the...
Gauge covariance and spin-current conservation in the gauge-field formulation of systems with spin–orbit coupling
Shikakhwa, M S; Turgut, Sadi; Pak, N K (IOP Publishing, 2012-2-23)
The question of gauge covariance in the non-Abelian gauge-field formulation of two space-dimensional systems with spin-orbit coupling relevant to spintronics is investigated. Although these are generally gauge-fixed models, it is found that for the class of gauge fields that are spacetime independent and satisfy a U(1) algebra, thus having a vanishing field strength, there is a residual gauge freedom in the Hamiltonian. The gauge transformations assume the form of a space-dependent rotation of the transform...
NEW APPROACH TO THE PATH-INTEGRAL REPRESENTATION FOR THE DIRAC PARTICLE PROPAGATOR
Alıyev, Tahmasıb; PAK, NK (1994-11-15)
The path integral representation for the propagator of a spinning particle in an external electromagnetic field is derived using the functional derivative formalism with the help of a Weyl symbol representation. The proposed method essentially simplifies the proof of the path integral representation starting from the equation for the Green function and automatically leads to a precise and unambiguous form of the boundary conditions for the Grassmann variables and puts a strong restriction on the choice of t...
A Mathematical Model for Simulation of Flow Rate and Chamber Pressures in Spool Valves
Afatsun, Ahmet C.; Balkan, Raif Tuna (ASME International, 2019-02-01)
In this paper, a mathematical model to simulate the pressure and flow rate characteristics of a spool valve is derived. To improve the simulation accuracy, the discharge coefficient through the spool valve ports is assumed to be a function of both the Reynolds number and the orifice geometry rather than treating it as a constant. Parameters of the model are determined using the data obtained by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analyses conducted on two-dimensional axisymmetric domains using ANSYS FLUENT 1...
New approaches for performance evaluation using data envelopment analysis
Özpeynirci, Nail Özgür; Köksalan, Murat; Department of Industrial Engineering (2004)
Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) assigns efficiency values to decision making units (DMU) in a given period by comparing the outputs with the inputs. In many applications, inputs and outputs of DMUs are monitored over time. There might be a time lag between the consumption of inputs and production of outputs. We develop approaches that aim to capture the time lag between the outputs and the inputs in assigning the efficiency values to DMUs. We present computational results on randomly generated problems as w...
