Aspen Plus – Intermediate Process Modeling

Learn how to model more Complex Industrial and Chemical Processes!
Instructor:
Chemical Engineering Guy
1,029 students enrolled
English [Auto-generated]
Model more advanced unit operations and more complex chemical processes
Simulate various unit operations in industrial processes
Rigorous Unit Operation Simulation
Improve Flowsheet Manipulation (Hierarchy Levels, Sub-flowsheets)
Logical Operators and Flowsheet Manipulators
Increase knowledge and application in the Physical Property Environment (Methods, Analysis Tools, Binary Diagrams, NIST TDE Databases)
Simulation Environment Analysis Tools: Sensitivity Analysis & Optimization with Constraints
Reporting Relevant Results (Graphs, Charts, Tables, etc...)
Heat Exchanger and Pump/Compressor curves
Distillation Column Profiling (Temperature, Pressure, Concentration, Purity)
Three in-depth Case Studies Analysis

The INTERMEDIATE Aspen Plus Course will show you how to model and simulate more complex Processes

Analysis of Unit Operation will help you in order to simulate more complex chemical processes, as well as to analyse and optimize existing ones.

You will learn about:

  • Better Flowsheet manipulation 
  • Hierarchy, Flowsheeting, Sub-flowsheet creation 
  • Logical Operators / Manipulators 
  • Understand Property Method Selection and its effects on simulation results 
  • Study of more rigorous unit operations 
  • Model Analysis Tools such as sensitivity and optimization
  • Reporting Relevant Results Plot relevant data for Heaters, Columns ,Reactors, Pumps
    • Temperature Profiles, Concentration Profile, Pump Curves, Heat Curves, etc… 
  • Up to 3 Case Studies (in-depth analysis)

All theory is backed up by more than 30 Practical Workshops!

At the end of the course you will be able to setup more complex processes, increase your simulation and flow sheeting techniques, run it and debugging, get relevant results and make a deeper analysis of the process for further optimization.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
