PROCESS MODELLING AND SIMULATION

LPTC

3003

OBJECTIVE:
To give an overview of various methods of process modeling, different computational techniques for simulation. The focus shall be on the techniques themselves, rather than specific applications so that the student can take up modeling and simulation challenges in his profession.

UNIT I

INTRODUCTION

6

Introduction to modeling and simulation, classification of mathematical models, conservation equations and auxiliary relations.

UNIT II

9

Degree of freedom analysis, single and network of process units, systems yielding linear and non-linear algebraic equations, flow sheeting – sequential modular and equation oriented approach, tearing, partitioning and precedence ordering, solution of linear and non-linear algebraic equations.

UNIT III

9

Analysis of liquid level tank, gravity flow tank, jacketed stirred tank heater, reactors, flash and distillation column, solution of ODE initial value problems, matrix differential equations, simulation of closed loop systems.

UNIT IV

8

Analysis of compressible flow, heat exchanger, packed columns, plug flow reactor, solution of ODE boundary value problems.

UNIT V

UNSTEADY STATE DISTRIBUTED SYSTEM & OTHER MODELLINGAPPROACHES

13

Analysis laminar flow in pipe, sedimentation, boundary layer flow, conduction, heat exchanger, heat transfer in packed bed, diffusion, packed bed adsorption, plug flow reactor, hierarchy in model development, classification and solution of partial differential equations. Empirical modeling, parameter estimation, population balance and stochastic modeling.

TOTAL : 45 PERIODS

OUTCOME:
Upon completing the course, the student should have understood the development of process models based on conservation principles and process data and computational techniques to solve the process models.
