Learn how to build process flowsheet simulation models to analyze steady-state processes using Aspen Plus. Learn how to simulate, optimize and troubleshoot various Unit Operation models and full process models. Develop the skills for process design, debottlenecking, and optimization of distillation columns which are both capital and energy intensive. The column hydraulic performance is important to ensure high separation efficiency and product quality. Rigorous modeling of columns with hydraulics can greatly improve energy utilization and reduce capital costs. In this course, users will understand how to interactively design and rate distillation columns in Aspen Plus. An essential task in the design and operation of a process facility is the development of simulation models to represent the physical conditions of the system and Aspen Plus has the capability to generate realistic fluid thermophysical properties, and to model non-ideal chemical and electrolyte systems. In this course you will also learn data regression and property estimation features of Aspen Plus capabilities. Develop the skills and techniques required for modeling new and existing batch processes. Build and troubleshoot flowsheet simulations with batch distillation columns, reactors, crystallizers.
