Agenda

Aspen HYSYS Process Simulation Overview 

  • Identify the benefits of process simulation 
  • Describe the capabilities of Aspen HYSYS 
  • Introduce the Aspen HYSYS graphical user interface and organizational structure 

Getting Started 

  • Enter necessary elements to fully define a Fluid Package 
  • Specify required parameters to execute flash calculations and fully define material streams 
  • Modify and set desired units of measure 
  • Review stream analysis options 
  • Workshop: Introduce basic concepts necessary for creating simulations in Aspen HYSYS 

Heat Exchanger Rating 

  • Review the available heat transfer unit operations in Aspen HYSYS 
  • Compare and contrast the applicability and operation of different heat exchanger models 
  • Implement Aspen Exchanger Design & Rating (EDR) for rigorous heat exchanger calculations within Aspen HYSYS 
  • Introduce the Activated Exchanger Analysis feature for continuous heat exchanger study and design 
  • Workshop: Use a Rating model to determine if an existing heat exchanger will meet desired process specifications; design and rate a heat exchanger using the EDR interface inside Aspen HYSYS 

Oil Characterization and HP Separation 

  • Introduce the Aspen HYSYS Oil Manager and Assay Management features and how they are used for assay characterization 
  • Perform Spreadsheet calculations in Aspen HYSYS 
  • Use the Case Study feature to run flowsheet-wide scenarios 
  • Workshop: Use the Assay Management tools to characterize a crude assay, then employ the Spreadsheet and Case Study features to determine how Gas-Oil Ratio (GOR) varies with operating pressure 

Compressor 

  • Introduce the Recycle operation in Aspen HYSYS 
  • Recognize suitable locations for a Recycle operation 
  • Enter compressor curves to determine head and efficiency as a function of inlet flow 
  • Workshop: Utilize the Recycle operation to build a two-stage compression flowsheet; define and activate compressor curves thus modeling a HYSYS compressor with real-world data
