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.
