Meanwhile, the major technological parameters for these important equipments are given. Combining with the domain knowledge of chemical engineering, some evolutionary factors are improved, and a set of special encoding method and heat integration strategy is proposed to deal with this kind of problem. The system structural variable is optimized by GP and the continuous variable is optimized by the complex algorithm simultaneously. Because GP has the automatically searching function, the optimal heat integration solution can be found automatically without any superstructures of nonsharp distillation sequences. Three illustrating examples are presented to demonstrate the effective computational strategies.", }
