It allows continuous simulations to run throughout project development and operational phases, enabling process and control design verification.
As your project progresses from concept phase through to commissioning, available technical information increases and the simulator functionality evolves in parallel.
The typical engineering and design phase starts with a steady-state simulation model for heat and mass balance, followed by a more detailed dynamic process simulator. The sooner the dynamic process model is built, the sooner it can be used to improve and validate process and control system design.
K-Spice® Design – for early issue detection
Avoid costly re-engineering and start-up delays through three verification and test areas:
Increase the understanding of process interactions and dynamics, and develop and verify process design, including HAZOP analysis cases.
Control philosophy verification
Develop and verify basic control and advanced process control strategies.
Test how the process will behave during a process shutdown.
