This talk will address examples of optimization problems in the areas of Chemical Engineering and Energy Systems. The goal is to provide a broad overview of a systematic procedure for defining problem statements, formulate optimization problems, and model and solve those using mathematical programming tools. The examples correspond to large deterministic real world problems from the Chemical Engineering industry, mainly related with process synthesis and production planning and scheduling, and examples from energy systems related with electricity generation scheduling, and virtual power plants scheduling in a market environment.
