A timely treatment of distillationcombining steady-state designand dynamic controllability As the world continues to seek new sources of energy, the distillation process remains one of the most important separation methods in the chemical, petroleum, and energy industries. And as new renewable sources of energy and chemical feedstocks become more universally utilized, the issues of distillation design and control will remain vital to a future sustainable lifestyle. Distillation Design and Control Using Aspen Simulation introduces the current status and future implications of this vital technology from the dual perspectives of steady-state design and dynamics. Where traditional design texts have focused mainly on the steady-state economic aspects of distillation design, William Luyben also addresses such issues as dynamic performance in the face of disturbances. Utilizing the commercial simulators Aspen Plus and Aspen Dynamics, the text guides future and practicing chemical engineers first in the development of optimal steady-state designs of distillation systems, and then in the development of effective control structures. Unique features of the text include: * In-depth coverage of the dynamics of column design to help develop effective control structures for distillation columns * Development of rigorous simulations of single distillation columns and sequences of columns * Coverage of design and control of petroleum fractionators Encompassing nearly four decades of research and practical developments in this dynamic field, the text represents an important reference for both students and experienced engineers faced with distillation problems.

Chemical Reactor Design and Control uses process simulators like Matlab®, Aspen Plus, and Aspen Dynamics to study the design of chemical reactors and their dynamic control. There are numerous books that focus on steady-state reactor design. There are no books that consider practical control systems for real industrial reactors. This unique reference addresses the simultaneous design and control of chemical reactors. After a discussion of reactor basics, it: Covers three types of classical reactors: continuous stirred tank (CSTR), batch, and tubular plug flow Emphasizes temperature control and the critical impact of steady-state design on the dynamics and stability of reactors Covers chemical reactors and control problems in a plantwide environment Incorporates numerous tables and shows step-by-step calculations with equations Discusses how to use process simulators to address diverse issues and types of operations This is a practical reference for chemical engineering professionals in the process industries, professionals who work with chemical reactors, and students in undergraduate and graduate reactor design, process control, and plant design courses.

Solving the model structure with a large equation set becomes a challenging task due to the involvement of several complex processes in an industrial plant. To overcome these challenges, various process flow sheet simulators are used. This book, now in its second edition, continues to discuss the simulation, optimization, dynamics and closed-loop control of a wide variety of chemical processes using the most popular commercial flow sheet simulator ASPENTM. A large variety of chemical units including flash drum, continuous stirred tank reactor, plug flow reactor, petroleum refining column, heat exchanger, absorption tower, reactive distillation, distillation train, and monomer production unit are thoroughly explained. The book acquaints the students with the simulation of large chemical plants with several single process units. With the addition of the new sections, additional information and plenty of illustrations and exercises, this text should prove extremely useful for the students. Designed for the students of chemical engineering at the senior under-graduate and postgraduate level, this book will also be helpful to research scientists and practising engineers as a handy guide to simulation of chemical processes. NEW TO THIS EDITION : Section 1.3 on Stepwise Aspen Plus Simulation of Flash Drums is thoroughly updated (Chapter 1) Section 3.2 on Aspen Plus Simulation of the Binary Distillation Columns is updated, a new section on Simulation of a Reactive Distillation Column is added (Section 3.6), and a new topic on Column Sizing is introduced (Chapter 3) A new section on Aspen Simulation of a Petlyuk Column with Streams Recycling is included (Chapter 4)

After an overview of the fundamentals, limitations, and scope of reactive distillation, this book uses rigorous models for steady-state design and dynamic analysis of different types of reactive distillation columns and quantitatively compares the economics of reactive distillation columns with conventional multi-unit processes. It goes beyond traditional steady-state design that primarily considers the capital investment and energy costs when analyzing the control structure and the dynamic robustness of disturbances, and discusses how to maximize the economic and environmental benefits of reactive distillation technology.

Distillation has historically been the main method for separating mixtures in the chemical process industry. However, despite the flexibility and widespread use of distillation processes, they still remain extremely energy inefficient. Increased optimization and novel distillation concepts can deliver substantial benefits, not just in terms of significantly lower energy use, but also in reducing capital investment and improving eco-efficiency. While likely to remain the separation technology of choice for the next few decades, there is no doubt that distillation technologies need to make radical changes in order to meet the demands of the energy-conscious society. Advanced Distillation Technologies: Design, Control and Applications gives a deep and broad insight into integrated separations using non-conventional arrangements, including both current and upcoming process intensification technologies. It includes: Key concepts in distillation technology Principles of design, control, sizing and economics of distillation Dividing-wall column (DWC) – design, configurations, optimal operation and energy efficient and advanced control DWC applications in ternary separations, azeotropic, extractive and reactive distillation Heat integrated distillation column (HIDiC) – design, equipment and configurations Heat-pump assisted applications (MVR, TVR, AHP, CHRP, TAHP and others) Cyclic distillation technology – concepts, modeling approach, design and control issues Reactive distillation – fundamentals, equipment, applications, feasibility scheme Results of rigorous simulations in Mathworks Matlab & Simulink, Aspen Plus, Dynamics and Custom Modeler Containing abundant examples and industrial case studies, this is a unique resource that tackles the most advanced distillation technologies – all the way from the conceptual design to practical implementation.
