Process Synthesis and Process Dynamics
The Process Synthesis and Dynamics (PSD) group is headed by Achim Kienle, who is an external scientific member of the MPI. He also holds a professorial position at the Otto von Guericke University. The MPI and university group collaborate closely.
The PSD group develops methods and tools for the synthesis, analysis and control of complex process systems. It combines physical chemical insights with concepts from systems and control theory as well as applied mathematics. Process insight guides the way to suitable problem formulations and to feasible as well as efficient solution strategies. If possible with reasonable effort, theoretical concepts are validated experimentally. With its approach, the PSD group helps to bridge the gap between theory and application.
