Steady state processes modeling and simulation

May 13-14, 2020 LEVEL 1
  • ProSimPlus
ProSim SA - Labège (31)
Language: English
COST 990.00 € + Tax (Included in MUTS contracts - free)

This level 1 training course will enable participants to master the fundamental principles of continuous steady state processes simulation and modeling. Trainees will study issues related to physico-chemical properties, unit operation modeling, mass-energy balances and numerical aspects.

At the end of the training, participants will have the required elements to assess the benefits of simulation and to analyse rigorously a process with a flowsheeting software. Additionally they will have a practical experience of the ProSimPlus simulator. 

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 an installation running under different operating conditions. This session is also very relevant for R&D engineers and researchers using simulation software for process synthesis.


  1st day ( 9:00am - 6:00pm)
I Introduction
    - Context
    - Mass and energy balances
II Main principles
    - Physical properties
    - Thermodynamic approach
    - Managing thermodynamic in ProSimPlus: Simulis Thermodynamics
    - Simulis Thermodynamics application examples
III Chemical reactions
IV Unit operations modeling
    - Feed, exchangers, reactors, distillation columns...
    - Case study
  2nd day (9:00am - 5:00pm)
V Controls, specifications, constraints and recycles
    - Numerical aspects,(non linear algebraic equations, solvers, module oriented and equation oriented simulators)
    - Case Study
VI Short overview of Windows Script module and scripting in ProSimPlus
VII Case studies and exercises


Cost and Conditions
The cost of this training session is 990 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.
