A general distillation modeling framework applied to an isotopic distillation column
In: 19th Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation (MED\'11), Corfu, Greece, 20-23.06.2011
Being one of the most approached subjects in the field of chemical engineering, a lot of numerical modeling methods for the distillation columns were presented in scientific papers. This means that in order to find a model that would suit a specific process requires a considerable amount of time. This paper will present a general first principle model that aims at providing users with a framework that can be easily adapted for any type of distillation process. In order to prove these assumptions an isotopic distillation process for the enrichment of 13C has been selected.
