Making the Most of Life-Cycle Dynamic Simulation, from Concept to OTS and Beyond

Steady state process simulation is universally accepted as an essential tool for project development across the process industries. Every process engineer expects to have easy access to Hysys or one of its derivatives or competitors for developing process heat and mass balances. Dynamic process simulation, however, is still seen as a “nice to have” by many projects despite the clear benefits it can bring. So what are the benefits of using dynamic simulation, and why is it not being used more routinely? This article aims to answer these questions, with specific reference to the Upstream Oil & Gas Industry, but close parallels exist in most sectors of the Process Industries.
