PID control over the exit raffinate composition (x5) of a five stages column is obtained by changing solvent flow rate (G). The set point is equal to 0.1. The model equations include backmixing effects. This problem is solved using Berkeley-Madonna in Chemical Engineering Dynamics, Ingham et al., Wiley-VCH, 2000. The program ExtractionCascade.m runs the simulink file ExtCont.mdl and plots the composition versus time of the five stages as well...
The program computes the number of equilibrium stages for a binary ideal mixture with relative volatility equal to 2.45. The feed is a two phase mixture with a feed quality is equal to 0.85. The distillate, feed and bottom mole fractions are 0.9,...
n the bottom of a Stefan tube there is a quiescent liquid with a mixture of acetone (component 1) and methanol (component 2). Vapor that evaporates from this pool of liquid diffuses to the top of the tube. Air (component 3) keeps the mole...
We use the genetic algorithm (gatool) to determine the three parameters of the simple Antoine equation and the six parameters of the Modified Antoine Model. Predictions are in perfect agreement with experimental data of vapor pressure of ethanol...
Gas absorption is a very ubiquitous unit operation in any chemical plant. It has in common with liquid-liquid extraction that there are two carrier streams and one solute to be partioned between them. Here, we use the McCabe and Thiele graphical...
We would like to rise water temperature with a heater. Oulet temperature must be equal to the set point temperature (80dlT-C). Proportional (P), Proportional-Integral (PI) and Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control are used and the...
We solve a binary distillation problem using the solution of a Riccati equation. We find that four plates are needed to achieve the desired product purity. We also compute the number of stages with the classical approach by stepping off stages...
The program computes residue curves for a ternary mixture composed of acetone, chloroform and methanol.
Wilson model is used to get activity coefficients. The program is composed of two parts; one for positive warped time and the other...
Flow past a wedge is governed by the Falkner-Skan equation. This equation admits only numerical solution, which requires the application of the shooting technique. The program plots the velocity for various wedge angles. The result obtained is in...
The program computes the liquid-liquid equilibrium diagrams for a type I ternary system based on the NRTL model. The ternary mixture: water-ethylacetate-acetone is an example of type I systems. The equilibrium diagram is obtained at a temperature... |
