  • Suresh Agrawal Why, When and How to update Fuels Blending Models ? We all know that blending in a refinery affects the bottom-line severely and it is in the best interest of a refiner to minimize quality giveaways, specs violation, reblends etc. etc. to maintain and/or improve business profitability. In this respect, it is very important to be able to predict the blended quality as accurately as possible. Since blending control is a model based operation, the following question arise: 1. When or how often do we need to update the blending models (parameters, biases, coefficients, etc.) ? 2. What are the mechanism to update models - Biases (grade specifics), non-linear coefficients plus biases ? 3. Do we need to do online or offline after a number of batches so far completed ? 4. How it is updated for linear programming (LP) based blend control and optimization system as compared to Non-linear based blend control and optimization system ? What are your thoughts and comments on this topic?
