gPROMS® ProcessBuilder: An Introduction (3-day)

Understanding steady-state and transient behaviour of chemical processes using mathematical models is of great importance in the design and operation of chemical processes.

Accurately predicting process dynamics is particularly important for projects involving batch processes, plant startup/shutdown, product/feedstock changeovers, control system design, and others.

Recent technological advances allow process engineers to optimise the design and operation of chemical processes with multiple design and operational decisions, taking into account a wide range of process constraints relating to safety, availability of resources, equipment capacity, etc. And using real-world data to validate the model is an inherent part of the model development process.

Audience

The course is aimed at chemical and process engineers who wish to start using gPROMS® ProcessBuilder to create flowsheet models and use these to optimise the design and operation of batch, semi-batch and continuous processes.

Content

This three-day course instructs attendees to effectively apply powerful optimisation techniques to real problems relating to process design, process operation and model validation. It combines tutorials and hands-on problem solving sessions. By the end of the course, participants will know how to:

  • Define physical property calculations
  • Using the built-in model libraries to develop flowsheet models, including
    • Reactive processes
    • Separation processes
    • Heat exchange and heat integration
    • Handling material recycles
  • Use the gPROMS language to customise (if necessary) specific sub-models, such as reaction kinetics
  • Execute a simulation and view results
  • Perform a sensitivity analysis
  • Optimise the process using formal mathematical optimisation techniques
  • Include process dynamics in a steady state process model
  • Conveniently define plant operating procedures
  • Set up and configure a control scheme
  • Validate your models
  • Publish a model for run-time use
