Process simulation is a model-based representation of chemical processes and unit operations in software. Basic prerequisites are a thorough knowledge of chemical and physical properties of pure components and mixtures, of reactions, and of mathematical models which, in combination, allow the calculation of a process in computers.
Process simulation software describes processes in flow diagrams where unit operations are positioned and connected by product or feed streams. The software has to solve the mass and energy balance to find a stable operating point. The goal of a process simulation is to find optimal conditions for an examined process.
This is essentially an optimization problem which has to be solved in an iterative process.
GAPTECH offers Process Simulation Services both Steady State & Dynamic in order to help the plant team to evaluate, optimize and tune the current plant performance.
