Annotation -
The lectures are focused on the tutorial of methodology of process development, design and optimization. The objective of the course in terms of learning outcomes and competence is to acquaint students with the problems of process development using the Aspen Plus universal simulation program and the possibilities of implementation of user modules developed in the Aspen Custom Modeler software, FORTRAN or VBA programming language.

Syllabus -

The subject is focused on the following topics:

1. Process approach in chemical industry, technological schema, mass and energy balances.

2. Chemical reactors, heat exchange, heat exchangers, separation of heterogeneous fluid mixtures, separation of homogeneous fluid mixtures - theoretical background and simulation approaches in universal simulation programs.

3. Development, control and optimization of processes - integration of reaction and separation nodes, heat exchange. Decision tree in different process variant evaluation - economic criterions, environmental protection, energy consumption.

4. Possibilities of user model development for Aspen Plus - software Aspen Custom modeler, models in programming languages like FORTRAN and VBA.
