Here is the listing of Best reference books on Process Plant Simulation.
|1. “Chemical Plant Simulation” by Crowe C. M., Hamielec A. E., Hoffman T.W., Johnson A. I., Woods D.R., and Shannon P. T|
|2. “Process Flowsheeting” by Westerberg A.W., Hutchinson H. P., Motard R. L., and Winter P
Book Review: This book deals with the use of computers for simulation and designing all types of chemical plants like petroleum refineries, petrochemical complexes and food factories. The author also stresses the importance of flowsheeting in process plant design and others techniques that are based on computer aided systems. The book also mentions advantages and disadvantages for all the techniques and other important methods. The methods in the book are illustrated with various practical examples. The book also focuses on the degrees of freedom analysis.
|3. “Chemical Process Simulation” by Husain A
Book Review: This is a very good book for simulation techniques in the field of chemical engineering. This book also covers the concepts of flowsheeting, partitioning, equation set tearing, process unit networks, matrices sparcity maintenance, convergence promotion methods and data banks of properties. The book also takes a look at the background information on formulation of models, numerical methods, graph theory applications and many more.
|4. “Process Modeling, Simulation and Control for Chemical Engineers” by Luyben and William
Book Review: This book covers all the areas of process control that the chemical engineering students at the undergraduate level should know. The presentation of the concepts is readable and is accessible to only a few things. The methods described in the book have been applied even in the industry to solve real world problems. The book covers topics of closed loop dynamics time analysis, laplace data domain and frequency and sample data domains. The book also discusses design of simple regulatory control systems for multivariable processes. The book in addition also covers practical identification methods.
|5. “Systematic Methods of Chemical Process Design” by Lorenz T. Biegler, E.I. Grossmann, and A.W. Westerberg|
