Introduction to Simulis Pinch and pinch analysis

May 15, 2020 LEVEL 1
  • Simulis Pinch
ProSim SA - Labège (31)
Language: English
COST 590.00 € + Tax (Included in MUTS contracts - free)

This level 1 training course will enable participants to master the fundamental principles of the pinch method and its practice through Simulis Pinch for the synthesis of heat exchangers networks.
At the end of the training session, participants will have the required elements to:
•    Quantify the energy performance of a process and optimize it.
•    Easily perform pinch method (« pinch technology ») in order to compare actual heating and cooling utilities against targets to eliminate unnecessary energy use (achieve an energy audit).
•    Conceive optimal heat exchangers networks to improve energy recovery and global energy efficiency of processes
Ultimately they will have a practical experience of the Simulis Pinch software allowing them to effectively practice the knowledge acquired during the training.

Who should attend?
This training session is designed for engineers involved in conception, optimization and analysis of processes and for those in charge of the efficiency of a process. This session is very relevant for engineers facing the energy challenges: energy managers, energy auditors, eco-efficient facilities designers.


Day (9:00am – 6:00pm)

I  Introduction:  
   - Context
   - Energy integration of processes

II  Pinch method:
   - Theory of the pinch method
   - Energy diagnostic of processes

III Simulis Pinch:
   - Software overview
   - Synthesis of heat exchangers network (theory and practice)


Cost and Conditions
The cost of this training session is 590 Euros (Exc VAT) per person.
It includes the training participation, lunch, refreshments and documentation. Other travel and accommodation costs are not included.
A 290 Euros fee will be charged for cancellations within last week before session date.

The companies under MUTS Services (Maintenance, Update, Training and Support) contract can register for free (subject to availability) for level 1 training sessions that are related to software covered by their contract. The same applies to universities and public research centers as part of their contract for the use of ProSim software for teaching and / or research purposes.

As the number of participants is limited, please register at least 10 days before the training session.

ProSim reserves the right to cancel a course if there are not enough participants.
