Beginning with the early days of automated multivariable control in the 1980s, the trend has always been toward the use of larger matrices and more models. Today’s multivariable controllers commonly comprise dozens of variables and hundreds of models. But the next big advancement in multivariable control may be a shift toward the use of small-matrix, model-less multivariable control practice...

Modeling and simulation are at the heart of chemical engineering design and operations today, whether it is using traditional process flowsheeting tools, computational fluid dynamics, advanced process-modeling environments, or specific equipment design packages (Figure 1). However, much of this modeling is currently performed in isolated “silos” within organizations.  Figure 1. Advanced...

While almost all chemical processors employ simulation software during the early design stages of new plants or new lines, simulation vendors say best-in-class facilities take the powerful tools further and use them for improving operations and profitability. And, across the board, software providers are working hard to make their most recent applications more user-friendly and accessible, so that more...

The ability to model a process to see if it meets project requirements and is economically viable enhances the conceptual design. Modeling gives engineers a means to identify the most promising processes, in terms of capital investment and return, and this can be particularly important when the project is environmentally oriented (a so-called green project). Did you ever consider producing a new product...
