The purpose of this project is to implement Model Predictive Control strategy to a Crude Distillation Unit model and to compare it to PI controllers in terms of controller performance. The motivation of this project comes to the fact that there is a need to reduce CO2 emission and at the same time to reduce energy consumption within the unit. The author has developed the CDU model using HYSYS and also in state-space representation using MATLAB, the latter was being used to design MPC controllers. From this project, it can be seen that the success of MPC implementation depends on the accuracy of the plant model to represent actual process. The MPC controller proved to be more effective in regulating the percent liquid level of the condenser but not so effective for the other two variables being studied.
