Abstract

Response Surface Method involving central composite design is employed to determine the optimal configuration of nine factors for maximizing the profit of a Condensate Fractionation Unit. When compared with the results from the base case and Taguchi method, the result from RSM shows higher profits by 33.1% and 1.16%, respectively. A further benefit of 0.64% is noticed when three insignificant factors were removed from the nine-factor experiment due to interactions between factors.
