Process Simulation

Process Simulation is a core expertise of InnoVent. We have developed high fidelity models for diversified industries and applications using leading commercial simulation software. InnoVent team has decades of experience in developing rigorous simulation models using most leading commercial simulation software. We develop steady-state and dynamic models for design, optimization, scale-up and transient analysis, and Operator Training Simulators (OTS).

Why Simulation?

Process simulation models are used for a variety of applications. For new projects, simulation models are used to generate heat and material balance, equipment sizing, design optimization, evaluating alternative technologies/process schemes and economic feasibility studies. Dynamic simulation models are used for control system design/validation and for operator training. For batch processes, simulation studies are done to optimize batch sizes, batch cycle time, operation steps for batch distillation and batch reactors.

For existing plants simulation studies are done to diagnose and rectify product quality issues, enhance capacity, improve energy efficiency and reduce off-spec products.

InnoVent has in-depth experience in developing and validating process models for variety of processes. Some of our core areas of expertise are:

Steady-State and Dynamic Models of Refinery Separation Processes: Crude Distillation, Vacuum Distillation, Naphtha Stabilizers, FCC Main Fractionator, Coker Columns etc.

Steady-State and Dynamic Simulation Models for Refinery Treatment Process: Amine Treatment, Sour Water Strippers, Caustic Towers etc.

Steady State Simulation Models for Refinery Reactors: These include FCC, CCR, DCU, NHT, DHT, HCU, ISOM, ALKYLATION. We build, calibrate and validate the process models of these units which in turn are used to optimize the units, predict yields and qualities of products with respect to changes in feed stock quality. The models are also used for generating input (delta vectors) for planning models (PIMS) enhancement and updates.

Rigorous Dynamic Simulation Models for Compressors: Rigorous dynamic simulation model for compressor performance analysis including anti-surge control validation, hot/cold bypass requirement, motor thermal limit check. We use first principles rigorous torque balance models to analyze the performance of compressors units during normal operation, turn down operation, emergency shut down, start-up, normal shutdown and other operational scenarios and propose appropriate modification to prevent the compressor from falling into surge and for safe operations.

Rigorous Simulation Models for Batch Reactor/Batch Distillation/Batch Processes: We undertake simulation of batch processes including batch reactors and batch distillation units to optimize designs and operations. For batch reactors, we apply first principles (Arrhenius, Hinshelwood-Langmuir, Fermentation/Biochemical & Catalyst Activity) reaction kinetic models to regress model parameters using variety of experimental data and simulate reactors with various heat transfer arrangement (Jackets, Internal Coil, Limped Coils) and agitations/mixing using variety of impellers geometries. This systematic approach helps in optimized design, maximized yield, minimized batch time and reduce off-spec/undesired side products with better process visibility, shorter product development cycle and faster process development.

Besides the above, we have the capability to build, calibrate and validate process models for virtually all process plants – be it Cement, Steel, Fertilizers, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients, Polymers, Petrochemicals, Ethanol, Distilleries, Natural Gas, Paper & Pulp, Mining & Metal Industries, Power Generation Plants, Water Treatment and Waste Management facilities. The models we develop not only provide the basis of design, it also provides reliable information and input for equipment selection and sizing, cost estimation, effluent generation & mitigation, control & safety system design and play the pivotal role at all stage of project life cycle – basic engineering, detailed engineering, construction, commissioning and operation.

Conceptual engineering and feasibility studies

Using simulation as a starting point and coupled with industry expertise, cost estimation models, we can provide feasibility and conceptual studies for new projects, revamps, scale up from lab to commercial scale. Our team has successfully executed over 15 such projects for global companies.

Process Safety Management

InnoVent’s safety and risk management services allow our clients to meet their safety, health, and environmental compliance. We have the experience to address issues ranging from operational risk, equipment integrity, loading limits or naturally occurring hazards. Our engineers use field-proven methods to offer clients practical, holistic risk management systems and solutions. From quantitative and probabilistic software-based risk modeling to qualitative hazard assessment, we can help you design an overall risk management strategy.

Some of the safety management services offered by InnoVent Includes:

  • Plant Pressure Protection Management: This includes identifying all creditable over-pressure scenarios, calculating relief load for all applicable over-pressure scenarios to determine governing case, perform PSV sizing, generating PSV process data sheet (as per API 520/521, API 2000, NFA-30, OSHA 1910.106).
  • Perform relief line sizing and hydraulics analysis for the flare network with respect to various relief scenarios.
  • Quench System Design for Emergency Relief where flare system network is not feasible.
  • Process Hazard Analyses (PHAs), HAZOPs.
  • PSM Compliance Audits.

  3. Use special templates for heat exchanger, compressor, reactor and distillation monitoring and optimization
  4. Visualize reports and KPI’s via dashboard.

InnoVent team has the expertise to provide process data historian configuration and implementation. A process historian allows users to capture data from a plant control system such as DCS, PLC systems, and Historize that data over a period of time, so that you can generate trends, history, performance parameters etc. for environmental and operational excellence purposes, users can track variations, anomalies, and generate KPI monitoring systems with dashboards. Data historian and MES solutions can be integrated with our VIP software for an integrated solution.
