Estimation of Physical Properties using EXCEL-UNISIM



UniSim simulation software is an intuitive and interactive process modeling that allows engineers to create steady-state and dynamic models for plant design, performance monitoring, troubleshooting, operational improvement, business planning and asset management. Using industry-specific unit operating models and powerful tools to optimize operating parameters for feedstock changes, UniSim Design allows the steady-state simulation of oil and gas, refining, chemical and petrochemical processes.

This workshop will demonstrate the use of EXCEL-UNISIM to perform physical properties estimation. Some hands-on examples will be provided.


Topics covered:

  • Importance of physical property estimation
  • Extraction of physical property data from simulators
  • UNISIM Design Suite
  • Excel Simulation
  • Hands-on Examples
  • Comparison of Excel results with UNISIM
  • Conclusion
