Cyclohexane can be produced from the following reaction: 3H2+C6H6 C6H12 Aspen HYSYS Dynamics allows users to see how a system switches from one steady-state condition to another one due to changes in the operating conditions. Being able to predict how a system will respond to disturbances helps process engineers avoid undesirable results

Key Teaching Points

Pressure driven dynamic simulation requires specification of inlet and outlet pressures.
Flowrates are determined from pressure drop.

Valves can be sized automatically by HYSYS Dynamics and manually be specifying a conductance value.
Conductance values can be changed once the results of a dynamic simulation are observed

Reactor feeds can be controlled to maximize product production
