She played key role in developing one of the most advanced online tool for energy management in refineries. A detailed model of the steam, fuels, electricity, emissions, boiler feed water and condensates systems has been built, including all the interactions among these systems, real plant constraints and degrees of freedom of their operation. Other utilities systems have been also modeled for monitoring purposes such as air, nitrogen, flaring system, cooling water, sea water and hydrogen networks. This model is scheduled to perform automatic executions for the optimization of the entire system and is continually populated with validated, live plant data.
