In earlier work we have developed and tested a scheduling [4] and planning model [5] in the AIMMS software. In this follow-up contribution we will develop a model that can be used to blend crudes from the storage tanks to the right API's required for the CDU's. This so called control level model optimizes the refinery activities at a shorter time scale than the scheduling model, typically at the minutes to hour scales. We will make a first step to identify the information flow between the scheduling model and the control level model. Especially the development of the crude oil layering constraints in the tanks is brought under the attention. With case studies we further demonstrate how the model works.
