Abstract: “Optimization of complex process models, e.g., those, resulting from conceptual design of distillation processes, with optimization environments such as GAMS, AMPL, or AIMMS is still thwarted by the manual implementation necessary for the interface to external thermo engines. In this contribution, we address this issue by automatically generating all code for interfacing GAMS with an external CAPE-OPEN thermodynamic property package.. …”
