Credit hours: 3(2,3,0) Prerequisites: Nil

 

Specific objectives of the course:

 

To develop understanding of various simulations and programming tools for process design.

 

Course Outline:

 

Optimization  method.  Heat  and  power  integration.  Reactor  network  design. Separation   system  selection   and   design.   Design   &   Simulation   Software: Introduction to various design and simulation software e.g. HYSYS, ChemCAD etc.  (A  particular  software  may  be  selected  to  cover  the  rest  of  the  course contents)  A  review  of  capabilities  and  limitations  of  the  design  /  simulation software. Flowsheets and sub-flowsheets. Defining process streams and use of Fluid Packages.  Adding common unit operations in the flowsheet. Drawing simple Process  Flow Diagrams  (PFD)  in  HYSYS,  steady  state  material  and  energy balances using graphical user interface and worksheet. Adding instrumentation and control components.  Simple transient calculations.

 

Lab Outline:

Material and energy balance, Flow sheeting on HYSIS, Chem Cad and Matlab
