Abstract

Dynamic simulation was carried out to investigate process operability, controllability, and flexibility, and to improve s the process design with respect to those solutions dictated by the experience and/or steady-state analysis. The case study was a natural gas sweetening process and specifically an amine process to remove H 2S. The process consisted of an absorber where the natural gas enters from the bottom and encounters a water/mono-di-ethanol-amine (MDEA) solution to remove impurities mainly H 2S contained in the inlet stream. The dynamic simulation highlighted some possible improvements for the traditional control scheme of MDEA plants. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 19th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering and 7th European Congress of Chemical Engineering (Prague, Czech Republic 8/28/2010-9/1/2010).
