Automated flowsheet synthesis is an important field in computer-aided process engineering . The method is applied to a reaction-distillation process in a quaternary system . A novel RL method named SynGameZero is developed to ensure good exploration schemes in the complex problem . The RL agent playsthis game against itself during training and consists of an artificial neuralnetwork and a tree search for forward planning. The method was applied successfully to a Reaction-distillation process in the quaternaries system . The author of the work concludes that the method can be used for automated flowsheets synthesis without heuristics of priorknowledge of conceptual design .
