Learn how to build a refinery planning model that covers two main sources of CO2: the FCC unit and the Fuel Gas system. With ongoing focus of refiners to include sustainability objectives into their planning and scheduling models, this can be used as a basis to model CO2 emissions in refinery planning.
This course is designed for new planners and modelers who have 1 year or less experience in Aspen PIMS / Aspen PIMS-AO and need experience in building and optimizing refinery planning models to generate optimum plans.
This course will help you prepare for the certification exam and the exam fee is waived with this course.
Planners who need to select crudes to minimize CO2 emissions.
Refinery Planning and Optimization Engineers
Technical as well as non-technical personnel who have no experience in linear programming. Also, this course provides a person who is knowledgeable in LP (but not necessarily knowledgeable in Aspen PIMS) with a quick way to gain a good understanding of the system.
Learn LP fundamentals
Gain familiarity with key Aspen PIMS tables and formats
Develop simple Aspen PIMS model and understand how the matrix structures are generated
Execute and troubleshoot various case scenarios and analyze information from Aspen PIMS reports
Perform basic economic evaluations
A basic understanding of Microsoft Windows and a working knowledge of Microsoft Excel, together with a general awareness of the interaction between refining technology operations and planning is strongly suggested.
