About This Class

This is simple course on Plant Simulation will show you how to model the most used and common unit operations present in a chemical plant.

We will model a small plant including several "basic" unit operations such as:

  • Pump
  • Reactor
  • Valve
  • Heater
  • Distillation Column
  • Flash

This is helpful for students, teachers, engineers and researchers in the area of R&D and Plant Design/Operation.

The course is didactic, with a lot of applied theory and Workshops/Study cases.

At the end of the course you will be able to setup a simple simulation, run it, get results such as heat duty, composition of streams, overall material and energy balances and some other specified unit operation parameters.

This is recommended specially for those willing to start their journey on their simulation/modeling via software career.

I think, you should have started with a brief intro of what the process is and the specifications required after the simulation. That way, the diagram for us will make sense and we can easily follow through. Normally, when we are asked to simulate a process it comes with design basis document or the intro as I've said. Which leads me to ask, how do you decide what unit operations to use. Why Radfrac, for example? By the way, I'm glad to have found these videos. I am actually just starting out on my first job as a process engineer and this is a big help. Looking forward to more of your videos.
