A simple package of routines that can be easily implemented
in small minicomputers used in process control, was developed to
simulate dynamic systems and computer control of simple dynamic
systems found in the process industries.
Two different systems, a gas absorber and a fifth-order
transfer function were chosen as processes...
One of the alternative energy-saving methods in a
conventional distillation process is the use of side
(intermediate) reboiler and/or condenser for a portion
of the overall heat load. A nonlinear differential equations
model was developed to describe the dynamics of a
typical binary distillation process with and without
Heat integrated distillation has been studied using an experimental
column built for that purpose. Heat integration involves the
use of intermediate reboilers and condensers to increase the thermal
efficiency of distillation. The intermediate reboiler and condenser
systems used in this work were designed so that the experimental
column could be...
