Abstract

Computer aided process design is improving with newer and newer tools. One of such tools is the automatic calculation technique that enables the combination of different software tools to enhance the efficiency of the calculations. In our research work Aspen HYSYS model of a petrochemical plant is built in order to simulate responses of an existing plant to the changes in the composition and amount of feed material. The Aspen HYSYS is connected to Microsoft Excel program; simulated operational data are stored in an operational database and transported to Excel for further analysis. The automatic calculation completed with the two software tools mutually strengthens their merits and results in enhanced insight into the operational features of any plant. Comparison of the projected input parameters of the petrochemical plant studied shows that the extension of the plant is badly needed. Cash-flow analysis suggests that the extension is profitable.
