APPLICATION OF MULTIPLE MODELLING PLATFORMS FOR OPTIMISATION OF PRODUCTION RAMP-UP

Andrade, H, Islam, KA

This paper describes the use of the Aspen Customer Modeller (ACM), the Brahma and the SysCAD modelling platforms at Worsley Refi nery expansion. The ACM has been applied for the optimisation of the production ramp-up. The commissioning stages of the new areas of precipitation and classifi cation were assessed using the results of the diff erent models running under the same input conditions. That allowed a better analysis of the commissioning stages as well as the identifi cation of limitations in the proposed process.
