An Advanced Course to Solve Real Refinery Operating Problems.
For engineers with Aspen HYSYS or similar process simulation know-how who need to successfully apply process simulation to solve operating problems in their daily activities.
After attending a basic course in process simulation, engineers are faced with the task of developing simulation cases for a specific objective. Whether they have to troubleshoot an operational problem, to monitor the process performance, to improve unit yields or to minimize energy consumption, they have to start the simulation in a completely different environment: overwhelming amount of data, scattered in different sources and sometimes not consistent.
This three-day course has been developed focusing mainly in these aspects: How to identify plant data requirements before developing the process simulation and how to collect and validate such data obtained from the typical refinery sources.
