Introduction to Process Optimisation in Process Simulation Software

3 Sep 2022, 14:00 CEST

Entry Cost: 5 USD


In the real industry, we might find optimization with more complexity due to a large number of governing equations and constraints (e.g.: mass & energy balances, max. operating condition, etc). Therefore, process simulation is one of the suitable tools to conduct process optimization. This workshop will discuss on how to formulate an optimization problem and how to solve optimization problem in process simulation. Case studies will be done in Aspen HYSYS and Aspen Plus as process simulators and Ms. Excel as a supporting tools.

Main Softwares to be presented:

Aspen HSYS; Aspen Plus; MS Excel

On the Agenda


Firstly, we will look at the theory behind the optimisation and what it means for a chemical engineer and its uses in the industry.

Optimisation in Process Simulation

We will look at how optimisation theory can be applied within process simulation software.


instead of just talking about the theory, we will also look at different case studies to discuss how these theories are applied.
