Chapter 10. Modelling of Batch Process Operations*
Abstract:
Here a batch cooling crystalliser is modelled and simulated as is a batch distillation system. In the batch crystalliser four operational modes of the crystalliser are considered, namely: initial cooling, nucleation, crystal growth and product removal. A model generation procedure is shown that sets out a clear set of steps to produce the model for dynamic simulation purposes. A population balance approach is adopted which through the application of a method of moments produces a set of ODEs from the original PDE model.
A full analysis of the model is performed to generate the Degrees of Freedom (DoF) analysis, choice of variables to satisfy DoF and solution strategy.
The batch ...
