Aspen HYSYS is the energy industry’s leading process simulation software that’s used by top oil and gas producers, refineries and engineering companies for process optimization in design and operations. In this course, participants will get familiar with this software, learn to recognize different simulation approaches and simulate typical plants.


- Recognize different approaches of simulation. - Distinguish the merits of CAPE-OPEN simulators. - Rapidly construct flow sheets using the intuitive, user-friendly features and bi-directional calculations of Aspen HYSYS. - Make use of thermophysical property models in the flowsheet. - Simulate typical plant including both physical operations and chemical processes. - Investigate how templates and sub flow sheets can streamline and organize simulation efforts. - Use Aspen Process Economic Analyzer from the Aspen HYSYS Environment. - Explore different means of reporting results, including the use of Excel VB macros. - Evaluate the performance of existing equipment with the Rating function. - Improve the convergence performance of a simulation, troubleshoot common issues. - Perform advanced functions such as sensitivity analyses, case studies, or optimization to re-use the flowsheet thousands of times over and get an incredible amount of useful data. - Model applications specific to oil and gas, including water saturation of a gas, determination of hydrate formation temperatures and pressures, and simulation of hydrate inhibition.
