“The selection of the structure can typically reduce energy consumption by 50% and net-present cost by 35%” (Siirola, 1996)
Importance of the mathematical model

For PNS problem (P,R,O) a P-graph (m,o) satisfying the following five axioms is a combinatorially feasible network.
(S2)xm, d-(x)=0 iff xR
(S4)y0o path [y0, yn] where ynP
(S5) xm, (,)o such that x()
Reduction of the search space
The five axioms reduce the
34 billion combinations of the operating units to
3,465 combinatorially feasible structures
for the industrial process synthesis problem of 35 op. units.
The optimal solution is included in the set of 3465 feasible structures.
