The climate crisis is driving significant change in the energy and chemicals sectors, with substantial new process development and adaptation of existing processes to accommodate new feedstock and energy sources. However, getting new processes to market rapidly poses many challenges.
The seminar will showcase the Siemens gPROMS digital design technology that is helping the green hydrogen industry to significantly reduce time-to-market for new hydrogen processes.
It will describe and demonstrate how this is achieved using tools that allow innovators to rapidly explore the process design space, determine optimal process parameters, identify and resolve operability issues and manage risk under uncertainty.
Using a concurrent engineering approach, the digital twin can evolve alongside the asset as it is designed and constructed before being deployed on-line to create value throughout the lifetime of the asset.
At the seminar you will learn about the following key topics:
- The principles of digital process design and how companies are using it to accelerate the go-to-market of new processes
- Validation of electrolyzer models using data for reliable predictive accuracy
- Dynamic simulation of complete green hydrogen production process including electrochemical conversion, buffers, compression, high-pressure storage and distribution
- Whole-plant optimization to determine optimal operating set-points, and buffer and equipment sizing
- Global system analysis to assess robustness to wide range of energy availability and hydrogen demand profiles
- Dynamic simulation to assess impact of unplanned failures (compressor module, electrolyzer module) on system performance and plan operational response
- Possibilities for on-line model deployment to support process operators
Who should attend
The seminar is a great fit for anyone from the green hydrogen industry with an interest in understanding how predictive digital process twins can be used to accelerate innovation and reduce time-to-market for new or modified processes.
