Abstract

Lately, the processing of low quality crudes is more frequent than ever and the heavyfeedstock is providing high quantities of vacuum residue. The delayed coking unit is the main converter of residue and usually a refinery that owns a Coker is considered to be residual free (Sawarkar et al., 2007). Our work investigates the delayed coking process due to the new environmental conditions for end products and because economic optimization based on model predictive control (MPC) is required for plant flexibility.
