Ellias, Emira Farzana (2015) SIMULATION OF DEBUTANIZER USING MATLAB. IRC, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. (Unpublished)

Download (2MB) | Preview


A debutanizer is a fractional distillation column used to separate butane from gas during the refining process. In this project a model of a debutanizer is developed for simulation purposes. The model can be used to study the steady state and dynamic behavior of the column. The main tool used for modeling and simulation of the debutanizer is MATLAB. Steady state model involves algebraic equations that will be solved by MATLAB functions while MATLAB toolbox ode45 is applied in dynamic model to obtain the solutions of ordinary differential equations. Simulation study was performed on steady state and dynamic state model in order to understand the principle and behaviour of the debutanizer.
