Process Simulation Courses

Courses aimed at acquiring the necessary know-how to apply the use of commercial process simulators to your daily activities

Inprocess offers Process Simulation Courses of different focuses and length. Public Training Courses give the attendees a chance to learn about process simulation in a neutral environment – away from their day-to-day job. In-house Training Courses can provide a cost-effective solution to companies who would like to train several of their staff in a specific subject. Inprocess uses a modular approach to courses and seminars. This allows us to readily change the emphasis of a training session to focus on specific areas. Some of our most popular combinations of modules are available in pre-packaged sets, and it is a straightforward question to add, subtract or re-order modules. On this page, you will find a selection of our process simulation courses.

Virtual Classroom:

Part of the current Inprocess catalogue of courses on Process Simulation is available in Virtual Classroom format for remote users. This availability comes in two ways:

  • Remote In-House: for groups of engineers belonging to the same company.
  • Remote Public: for engineers belonging to different companies (calendar available here)

Inprocess’ Virtual Classroom courses bring together the benefits of Inprocess’ training philosophy (learn by doing) and the capabilities of online-style training.

The full-time presence of the instructor during the five days of the course allows the attendees to gain a complete insight into the course concepts and simulation features, while at the same time letting them interact in a relaxed, informal way with the course instructor. With the course contents distributed over the course of a week, in an easy-to-follow format, the project experience of Inprocess’ simulation expert will facilitate the learning process of the course attendees.

The attendees will learn the fundamentals of dynamic process modeling using commercial dynamic simulators and the main differences between steady state and dynamic modelling will be introduced. In addition, the necessary basic control theory will be reviewed briefly. To facilitate an efficient learning experience, all concepts will be studied using simple and practical hands-on examples.

SC-DS02: Simulation for process control engineers

Process Engineers are heavy users of simulation tools (Aspen HYSYS®, Aspen Plus®, Honeywell UniSim® etc.) to design new processes or revamps, and almost all simulation training courses are designed for them. On the other hand, there are almost no specific simulation courses targeted at process control engineers, who can make use of the simulation tools to perform specific control tasks with the help of a simulator.

This course is conceived with the following objectives in mind:

SC-DS14: Dynamic process simulation (petrochemicals focus)

The course content covers the basic needs of dynamics process simulation users from the petrochemical and refining industries, including the modeling of chemical reactors and of complex column configurations. The attendees will learn the fundamentals of dynamic process modeling using commercial dynamic simulators and the main differences between steady state and dynamic modeling will be introduced. In addition, the necessary basic control theory will be reviewed briefly.
