  1. 1. Dynamic Process Modeling Outline <ul><li>General Process Modeling Framework </li></ul><ul><li>Process Models Basics </li></ul><ul><li>Degrees of Freedom </li></ul><ul><li>Modeling Example (Not shown in slides) </li></ul>
  2. 2. Modeling Approaches Theoretical Models Empirical Models Semi-Empirical Models Process Models Derived from first principle balances and theoretical property & phenomenological models Derived by fitting data, often time series data mapping inputs to outputs Uses first principles (balances etc) and finds model parameters through plant data
  3. 3. Theoretical Modeling Process Basic Equations Scaling Simplifying Assumptions Dimensional Analysis Check Consistency Model Solution Model Verification First Principles Description Low Impact Phenomena “ Optimally Sloppy” Model Degree of Freedom Analysis Dimensions & Units Consistent Plant Data Experimental Data Well Defined Model + Initial and Boundary Conditions <ul><li>Analytical </li></ul><ul><li>Asymptotic </li></ul><ul><li>Computational </li></ul>Predictions <ul><li>Mass </li></ul><ul><li>Energy </li></ul><ul><li>Momentum </li></ul>Conservation Laws + Phenomena System Boundaries Goals of Model

Adjectives of Modeling Lumped Parameter Distributed Parameter Steady State Transient Single Compartment or Stage Multi Compartment or Stage In this course we will mostly be concerned with Transient, Lumped, Multi-stage, Process Models X = f(space) X = f(space) X= f(time) X= f(time) X=f(t) X i =f(t) i=1,…n

Balances Mass Flow into System Mass Flow Out of System Time Rate of Change Of Mass inside system = - Overall Mass Molar Flow of j th Specie into system Molar Flow of j th Specie out of system Time Rate of Change Of moles of j inside system Rate of formation j th specie - = + Mols/time Specie Balance Energy Balance Time Rate of Change Of PE, KE and U Flow out of PE, KE, U Flow in of PE, KE, U Heat Added to System = Work done by system - - + Joules/time

  7. 7. Molar Flows: Diffusive Diffusive Flow Molar Rate of j th specie - Diffusivity of j th specie Area Perpendicular to Transport Concentration Gradient for j A C j0 C j1  z m 2 /sec (Mol/m 3 )/m m 2 A D j = X X Diffusive Molar Flow Rate of j th specie
  8. 8. Molar Flows: Interphase If the system boundary is drown at a phase boundary then we have to consider this. Rate of Mass Transfer Mass Transfer Coefficient Interfacial Area Concentration Driving Force m/s m 2 mol/m 3 F V L F V L L

  10. 10. Reaction Terms Affect the molar & heat balances r j =reaction rate of j= K*f(C j ,…) C j = concentration of j mol/m 3 If j is a reactant then the generation term in the mole balance: -r j * V V is the volume of the vessel/compartment K has units of per time and appropriate m 3 /mol to make r j mol/m 3 /time Heat Balance -r j * V*  H R This term included (note negative sign) Note also that the reaction rate term has exponential temperature dependence
  11. 11. Degrees of Freedom Degrees of Freedom = Number of Variables – Number of Independent Equations A fully specified equation system should have ZERO degrees of freedom (DOF) What is this for differential equations? E.g. 5 variables and 1 equation  4 DOF U 1 (t), U 2 (t) Given by controller equations D(t) Given by environment X(0) Given as an initial condition 4 more equations Completes the system and gives zero DOF left Note that we could give As an initial condition
  12. 12. Degrees of Freedom NC Component Balances Or NC-1 Component balances and 1 Overall mass balance 1 Energy Balance External disturbances and inputs as functions of time NC+1 Balances typically Property phenomena models (algebraic equations): <ul><li>Thermodynamic Properties (heat capacity, enthalpy, density, heat of reaction) </li></ul><ul><li>Transport Properties (heat/mass transfer coefficients & equations) </li></ul>
  13. 13. Non-Isothermal CSTR V T State Variables r A = KC A F IN F OUT C A,IN 1 Mole balance on A, 1 Overall Mass balance, 1 Energy Balance Phenomena Models:  = constant C P = constant Q System  H R = constant P Write Balances and do DOF analysis Gravity Driven outlet flow
