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 elements necessary to evaluate the benefits of the simulation and to carry out a process analysis with a flowsheeting software. They will have hands-on experience using the ProSimPlus Energy software.

These objectives are evaluated at the end of the training.

Who should attend?

This training session is designed for engineers involved in conception, optimization and energy efficiency analysis of processes and for those in charge of the efficiency of an installation running under different operating conditions.

This training is also intended for people who have already taken the training "Steady-state processes modeling and simulation" and wanted to update their knowledge on ProSimPlus or ProSimPlus Energy.
