Course structure:

Course consists of 5 sessions occurring every other day, such that user is given enough time to complete each exercise. Feedback on each exercise is given via 1 to 1 video calls with the trainer or via e-mails. Detailed course schedule is presented bellow:

Wednesday 2nd December (10:00-11:30 CET): Fluid flow in pipes & Pump curve def. exercise

Objective Exercise I:

  • How to set up pipelines with/without valves, slow (real) valves set-up & tuning
  • How to set up and tune a pump (pump curve) for the given system characteristics
  • How to tune pipe element (joint) system for stabile dynamic operation (pressure changes)

Will teach you how to model pressure-driven fluid flow in pipes, determine correct pump curve & tune pipe element for better dynamic simulation stability.

Friday 4th December (10:00-11:30 CET): Batch Sequences & Scenarios definition exercises

Objective Exercise II:

  • How to set up a sequence – set of conditional time dependent actions for a model

Will teach you how to define (batch) process operational sequences & scenarios for existing models.

Monday 7th December (10:00-11:30 CET): Reactive Distillation Exercise

Objective Exercise III:

  • How to build a one tray reactive distillation unit model from scratch
  • How to model a phase-change connection
  • How to model multi-phase systems
  • How to define phase thermodynamic definition in Mobatec Modeller
  • How to build multi-tray column using “Repetitive Structures” systems

Will teach you how to set-up rate-based model of two or multi-phase systems.

Wednesday 9th December (10:00-12:00 CET): Process Control exercise

Objective Exercise IV:

  • How to set up a control configuration of your process models in MM
  • Understand the effect of each PID controller parameter (K, Ti & Td)
  • Tune (Feedback-loop) Controllers of Self-Regulating Processes: Flow, Pressure, Temperature, Level (80-85% of all control loops)
  • Tune Controllers of Self-Non-Regulating Processes (Integrating Processes):Level of the tank with controlled (fixed) output (10% of all loops), “Low-pressure, large-volume” gas pressure control, etc…

Will teach you how to set-up background controllers for your process. Will teach you how to recognize self-regulating or integrating processes, how to use model predictive control to tune them first time right.

Wednesday 11th December (10:00-12:00 CET): Flow-sheet Process model development; Time Integrating Numerical solvers:

Objective Exercise V:

  • How to set up & run dynamic model including multiple unit operations
  • Understand explicit, implicit & semi-implicit time integrating (ODE) solvers

Will teach you how to set-up & run multi-unit operation process dynamic model. Will teach you how ordinary differential equations (ODE) solvers work, and explain the differences between explicit, implicit, and semi-implicit solvers.

Presented by PDEng Vladimir Obradovic
Senior model engineer and modelling consultant @Mobatec

Graduated as a Chemical Engineer at the Belgrade University, Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy. Immediately Vladimir decided to extend his knowledge and participated and succesfully concluded the Professional Doctorate in Engineering at the Technical University of Eindhoven, with focus to Multi-Phase Reactor modelling.

A passion for chemical engineering and with that the design of “the real” dynamic tooling to simulate and build the best possible plants. “Give me the problem I will create the solution” is what best describes Vladimir.
