Importance of Process Control Simulation

  1. Realistic Training Environment: Training new engineers and technicians is a critical task in industries where process control is one of the most aspects. Process Control Simulation provides a lifelike training environment. With SIMCET, young engineers and students can practice tuning PID loops and gain confidence in PID tuning without the risk of affecting real processes. SIMCET is comprised of over 100 real world process control examples, separated into groups by industry type. This immersive training software builds expertise and ensures engineers are well-prepared for real-world scenarios.
  2. Academic Learning: In the academic realm, Process Control Simulation is a powerful teaching tool. It allows students to gain a deep understanding of control principles, distillation columns, heat exchangers, and other typical engineering concepts. Our products, such as PiDistill, PiDistill-B, PiLevel, PiTemp, PiFlow, PiAgitator, PiReactor-T and PiHEx, serve as virtual laboratories that help students bridge the gap between theory and practice, preparing them for future roles in chemical engineering.
  3. Process Optimization: Process Control Simulation facilitates experimentation and process optimization. With our products, students and professionals can experiment with different scenarios, explore how process conditions impact outputs, and manipulate control parameters in real-time. This practical experience is invaluable in improving and optimizing processes for enhanced efficiency and quality. For instance, typical control loops essential in various processes, ensuring product quality and safety are covered in PiLevel, PiFlow and Concepts and operation of distillation columns are explained in PiDistill and PiDistill-B covering both continuous and batch distillation. Chemical reactors are crucial parts of equipment for synthesis of new chemical products. PiReactor-T and upcoming simulators cover process control concepts in chemical reactors. Heat exchangers, one of the most common parts of equipment in the process industry, are covered in PiHEx. Mixing concepts are covered by PiAgitator. The mentioned simulators equip engineers with the skills they need to master this aspect of process control in different segments of the process industry.
  4. Safety and Reliability: Training and experimentation within a simulated environment significantly contribute to safety and reliability. Engineers can learn to control processes without the risk of plant problems or shutdowns. This builds a safety-conscious culture and ensures that processes are maintained reliably. Simulators from PiControl Solutions enable engineers to learn about crucial process industry components in a safe environment.
