Overview

This module consolidates the knowledge in mathematics, transport phenomena, unit operations and process control to impart further skills in process modelling and simulation. Participants will learn how dynamic process models are developed and deployed.

This module covers the following topics:
  • A review of the process model development process
  • Different forms of process models and where and how they are used
  • How the modelling equations are solved
  • How models are tested and validated and analysed for robustness.
Participants will also gain further experience in the use of standard computational tools to simulate and evaluate the efficacy of developed models.

Teaching Team

What You’ll Learn

  • The use of models in Chemical Engineering and the model development process
  • Different model types, their use and solution of the underlying equations
  • Mechanistic models: staged processes and reaction systems; batch and continuous processes.
  • Data driven models: linear and non-linear time series, parameter estimation, variable selection
  • Model testing, validation and sensitivity analysis
  • Current trends in Process Modelling

Who Should Attend

Chemical Engineers and Process Engineers who wish to gain further knowledge of modelling and simulating chemical and process engineering systems for improving operations, control and optimisation.
