2 Oil Characterization
The petroleum characterization method in HYSYS will convertlaboratory analyses of condensates, crude oils, petroleum cuts and coal-tar liquids into a series of discrete hypothetical components. Thesepetroleum hypocomponents provide the basis for the property packageto predict the remaining thermodynamic and transport propertiesnecessary for fluid modelling.HYSYS will produce a complete set of physical and critical properties forthe petroleum hypocomponents with a minimal amount of information. However, the more information you can supply about thefluid, the more accurate these properties will be, and the better HYSYS will predict the fluid's actual behaviour.In this example, the Oil Characterization option in HYSYS is used tomodel a crude oil. The crude is the feed stock to a Pre-heat Train,followed by the Atmospheric Crude Column, which will be modelled in asubsequent module.
Learning Objectives
Once you have completed, you will be able to use the OilCharacterization option in HYSYS.
Before beginning this module you need to understand the basics of theFluid Package (refer to Getting Started).
Oil Characterization3
Building the Simulation
Before you can start the actual characterization process, you will firstlearn how to modify the Unit Set which is very useful in a Refinery. Forexample, you can work with barrels/day instead of m
/h.1.Start a new case.
Modifying the Unit Set
HYSYS allows you to have your own set of units. For this case, the unitfor Standard Density will be API_60 instead of kg/m
as in the SI.2.From the
menu select
, and go to the
 tab.3.Select the
SI unit
set as the default.4.You cannot edit the default set, but you can make a copy of it bclicking the
button.5.Rename the cloned unit set to
.6.Move the cursor to the Standard Density cell.7.Select
from the drop-down list.
