About the Course
Process simulation is a discipline transversal to all the areas of chemical engineering. The future success of the chemical process industries mostly depends on the ability to design and operate complex, highly interconnected plants that are profitable and that meets quality, safety, environmental and other standards. To achieve this goal, the software tools for process simulation and optimization are increasingly being used in industry and academia.
This short-term course will target this aspect amongst the others, with an objective to impart process design and developmental skills of chemical process systems, plant simulation and its sensitivity analysis through intensive lectures, case studies and hands on sessions. This course emphasizes the use of process simulators and is designed to give rich hands-on-experience to participants.
The problems chosen ranges from simple problems encountered in day to day life to practical/industrial problems. This well-organized STC is divided into two parts with widely used simulators. Part-I includes fundamentals aspects and flowsheeting of chemical processes Part-II includes hands-on sessions with available simulators such as ‘ASPEN PLUS’ and an open source simulator ‘DWSIM’.
This well-organized STC is divided into three parts.
- Part-I includes fundamentals on process simulation with background of thermodynamics, mass and energy balances.
- Part-II consists of basic concepts, flowsheeting and hands-on sessions with sensitivity analysis in an open source simulator ‘DWSIM’.
- Part-III includes design and applications of process units with case studies and assignments.
