Simulation help engineers to model processes faster, easier and without losing considerable amount of resources such as money and time.

It helps to cover different scenarios in order to optimise existing processes or to design new ones.

It helps process engineer to understand current operation conditions as well.

This will be our process! Please ensure to get to know it. The better you know your process (overall) the easier it becomes to simulate it.

Try to remember all unit operations, streams and important flow rates, given data and variables.

Good luck!

How to start a new simulation, new case, save case, templates and so on...

Preview 01:18

Selecting and filling up the component list. All reactants, products, intermediates must be present.

Adding a Component List
01:20

Selection of a good Fluid Package. Avoid components which are not well modeled with the selected fluid package. Method Assistant is very useful here!

Choosing a Fluid Package
01:29

If there is any reactor, a set of chemical reaction will be required. Remember that a "Set" of reactions requires at least 1 "Reaction". Ensure to use -1 for reactants and +1 for products.

Setting up Reactions
03:21

What is a flowsheet, and how to use it.

Why do we need a flowhseet?

Preview 01:37

Manipulation of the Flowsheet:

  • Adding Unit Operations
  • Adding Material and Energy streams
  • Moving
  • Labeling
  • Rotating
  • Deleting
  • Copy and Pasting
Manipulation of the Flowsheet
03:19

The model palette and how to use it. Which unit operations are present.

Preview 01:53

Modeling a Chiller, with an inlet/outlet of material stream. A heat/energy stream is required to set up this unit operation.

Cooler (Chiller)
03:34

Choose the "Separator" in order to simply make a flash separation. Liquid and Vapor separate due to the equilibrium condition.

Flash Drum
01:51

The heater is modeled similar to the chiller, there is an inlet and outlet of material. We must add an Energy Stream in order to set the Heat Duty

Heater
02:46

Setting up a Reactor. It is based on the activity/gibbs free energy/equilibrium constant.

Equilibrium Reactor
04:20

A turbine can be modeled with an expander. It takes out energy via transformation of internal energy to mechanical energy

Expander
01:50

The valve is used to decrease pressure or decrease flow rate.
