Batch processes are fundamentally different from continuous chemical processes in both their design and operations, which pose a diversity of problems to system engineering and process control. As an emerging methodology for batch processes, Petri net has found its applications in different aspects of modelling, qualitative and quantitative analysis, supervisory and co-ordinate control, planning and scheduling, and hybrid system design. In this paper, recent research on Petri net applications in batch processes is presented, and future directions are discussed.
