The transfer function can be developed. filled with mercury. 6. A compressed air supply at 1 atm. 7.Remember that the mercury thread will move very fast and the reading has to be taken in very short time. .on the outlet side of the pressure regulating valve.Aim: To find out the dynamic response of a second order under damped system to a step change in the input variable. Repeat steps (6) to (7) for minimum three different step sizes of pressures. Repeat (3) and (4) but now take the reading for the trough in the thread height if earlier reading was taken for peak in the thread height. gauge pressure. After this an additional pressure of magnitude “P” is applied . Net force on the mass= Mass × acceleration. Note down the height of mercury thread in one of the limbs of the manometer. At time T=0 with draw the air pressure and note down the height of the mercury thread in the same limb where the reading was taken earlier . will b assumed to be proportional to the velocity of the fluid and all the fluid mass is assumed to accelerate uniformly. Procedure: 1. 3. Go on taking the readings of subsequent peak and though heights of mercury thread. Again it will be assumed that the crosssectional area of manometer tube ‘A’ remains constant all through. by considering a force balance on manometric fluid and applying Newton’s law of motion to it. Applying the Newton’s Second law of motion gives us. Apparatus : • • • A”U”-tube manometer of sufficient inside diameter. 2. 5. the frictional pressure drop due to motion of fluid through “U” tube. 8. A pressure regulating valve to control the out put pressure of compressed air. Apply the regulated compressed air pressure to one side of the manometer by using the manometric tubing provided for the pressure. Connect the compressed air supply to the inlet side of the pressure regulating valve. To simplify the matter. Similarly viscous pressure drop will also try to resist the movement of the fluid. Allow sufficient time for the manometer reading to stabilize. 4. This rise in the height of the liquid will create back pressure and will try to resist movement of manometric fluid. closed adjust the setting of the pressure regulating valve that the pressure on the outlet side comes to he desired value.As a consequence to this manometric fluid starts rising in the right hand side and dropping by corresponding magnitude in the left side.

L = Length of the manometric fluid in the manometer. we get H(s)/H2(s) = 1/[τ2 S 2 + 2ζτ S + 1 ] (5) To define equation (5) fully we require value of two parameters ζ and τ and it is known as second order system. hi is taken as input pressure in terms of liquid column height to balance that pressure. Again notice that coefficient of d2h /dt 2 {L/2g}have dimensions of sec2 or (time2).RAdh/dt = ALρ/ gc [d2 t / d h2 ] Where.

The response of second order system to various forcing functions can be obtained by factorizing the quadratic term in the denominator into two linear terms that contains its roots S1 and S2.

Theory : The Digital Control System is the recent development in Chemical Engineering Branch. determine the value of overshoot and decay ratio. the stream is taken from the 7th tray and it is at higher . In this practical.RESULT : From the graph. and compare graphical value with the theoretical value. Type of Value Graphical value theoretical value Overshoot Decay ratio CONCLUSIONS: EXPERIMEN – 7 HEAT EXCHANGER Aim : To study the Digital Control System for Heat Exchanger.

When the hot fluid comes out its temperature decreases and the temperature of cold fluid increases. The temperature controller regulates the flow through heat exchanger & by-pass. This is accomplished by cooling the TPA (Top Pump Around).The temperature of the TPA entering the shell is controlled by the flow of cold water whose temperature varies from 15 to 50 Deg C. The TPA comes from the 8th tray of FCCU fractionator at150-200 Deg C. thereby controlling the temperature of the mixed stream to maintain desired set point (105 Deg C) HEAT EXCHANGER PROCESS DESCRIPTION: The model uses standard Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger. controller output increases temp will settle at lower value than design. depending upon the malfunction value. cold water and note down various parameters that vary proportionally respectively. The logic behind this is that all the flow rate varies due to the proportional control attached to it . following a “Design Start”. The purpose of Heat Exchanger in this model is to control the temperature profile of FCCU fractionator. If any difficulties arise in the midst of work. depending upon the malfunction value. .entering the 4th tray to 105 Deg C.temperature and the temperature has to be lowered so we are using heat exchanger .For having the temperature of the stream leaving the heat exchanger and entering the fractionator and at higher. entering the shell. Process Description : The objective in training a student on this system is to explore the control system tied up with non-linear process behavior. Also vary the temperature of hot stream. The temperature of the TA. Now vary the flow rate of hot fluid. SIGNIFICANT OPERATING VARIABLES: The most important controller is Temperature Controller that is used to control the TPA return temperature to desired set point. ranges from 150 Deg C. and take down the readings. Exercise 1: Temperature Control Action: Decrease the set point of temperature controller TIC-01 Result: The controller’s output decreases. Flow controllers for TPA entering Shell Side & cold water entering tube side are also provided for controlling the plant in fully automatic mode. cold stream. with water on tube side & TPA entering the shell side .The hot fluid flows into the tube side and the cold fluid (water) flows into the shell side. Training Exercises: The exercises begin with the program operating at the normal condition. reinitialize the program and continue without getting bogged down in by manipulation of the controls.

Result : Output of FIC-02 increases thereby increasing flow of TPA. using some of the hydrogen produced by the reforming reactions.Discussion: The decrease in set-point shall demand more cold TPA from shell side of heat exchanger as compared to the TPA through by-pass which causes the temperature controller to increase the cold TPA through by-pass. Theory : The Catalytic Reformer Plant converts feed stocks into high –Octane gasoline. EXPERIMENT – 8 CATALYTIC REFORMER Aim : To study the Digital Control System with the Catalytic Reformer. A byproduct of the process is hydrogen. . the feed is first desulfurised to extremely low limits of sulfur. Exercise 3 : FIC-02 Action : Increase setting of FIC-02. To avoid catalytic poisoning. Exercise 2 : FIC-01 Action : Increase setting of FIC-01 Result : Output of FIC-01 increases thereby increasing flow of cold water through tube side of heat exchanger.

(whereas plant has three sets of these equipment ) . ACTION: Student varies the set point FIC-101. one furnace and one feed effluent heat exchanger (where as plant has three sets of these equipment). and the second is the reforming section. Reactor Inlet Temperature. The Simulator will be considering reforming section only. By sending this fraction to a reforming unit and giving them a light ‘crack’ their octane number may be increased . The plant is divided into main sections as regards chemical reactions. RESULT: Temperature of combined feed brings to its new set point.Straight-run gasoline and light naphthas usually have very low octane numbers.This upgrading is probably due primarily to isomerisation. Composition of feed flow and recycle gas can be changed from Instructor console. In simulator. Reforming section includes one reactor.Reformer Feed Control. The first of these is the desulphurization section.1. one furnace and one feed effluent heat exchanger. DISCUSSION: Temperature controllers regulate the fuel gas flow. Reforming section includes one reactor. The reactor pressure is assumed to be constant at 31kg/cm2 G . . and the second is the reforming section. feed flow is simulated by simply opening feed valve and opening feed valve and recycle gas. The plant is divided into main sections as regards chemical reactions. The Simulator will be considering reforming section only. The first of these is the desulphurization section.

So the reformer flash drum pressure controller reacts. how much time it takes for conditions to settle out. Recycle gas control. RESULT: Circulation of hydrogen to the reactors is changed. Discuss why a change in the flow rate is not particularly upsetting the reformer flash drum pressure control system. thus changing some basic operating ratios in the plant. DISCUSSION: Notice finally now this change is reflected to the throughput to reactor i. the fresh feed rate settle out to a value. Ex. 7 briefly note the fact that hydrogen production rate is change. ACTION: Student varies the setting of HC 101. Major Equation Used in Models: The catalytic reactor model is considering the following reactions : .More or less hydrogen is produce.3.RESULT: Feed rate changes to new set point value of FIC-101. DISCUSSION: Take note how all the temperatures change.1.

and residue rate is varied. Then various readings for varying top head pressure is changed and result on the other parameter is seen. Then we will close the discharge valve and then we will note down the effect. 3. 4.

Distillation of Benzene and Toluene occurs Benzene comes out from the top and toluene comes from the bottom and we have to note down the reflux flow rate that varies proportionally. 2. . Theory : In Binary Distillation. The steam flow rate is varied and accordingly reflux.

Increasing the bottom plate temperature will increase the bottom fraction of boilers. And heat of vaporization and condensation have similar values. The reflux rate effectively determines the time that the feed materials remain in the column. These bubble plates provide time for mixing and interchange of vapor and liquid flows required for carrying out distillation separation. These are so named because they have a number of horizontal plates or trays. the vapour rate out of the plate is nearly equal to the vapor rate into the plate. plus the heat loss and the heat of mixing. in high material. making it richer in low boiling material. the sensible heat of the liquid and vapor flows into the plate plus the latent heat of the condensing vapour must equal the sensible heat of the liquid and the vapor flow out. the bottom plate temperature can be used to adjust the fraction of high boiling material in the bottom product flow. For the continuous balanced operation.The DISTILLATION TOWER OPERATIONS Program has to do with conventional bubble cap plate distillation tower. which are usually equally spaced in the upright tower shell. The temperature of the boiling liquid is fixed by ht column pressure and liquid composition and heat balance is always maintained. The more vapour produced. . the heat balance effectively reduces the balance between the heat given up by condensing vapor and the heat requires to vaporize the liquid leaving the plate. Since the temperature change from one plate to another is usually small. The relatively large number of trays used generally produces tall and upright structure. Liquid enters the bottom part of the tower from the bottom plate down flow pipe. the richer the bottom liquid becomes. A smaller reflux flow will produce a less pure overhead product. Therefore for constant column pressure. A large reflux rate means high portion of the overhead vapors are returned to the column giving the material a longer time exposure to the separation operation. and is the reason for the terms “column” or tower.
