Abstract

In the process design of chemical production plants, dynamic simulation plays an important role. This paper gives a short introduction to the process modeling tool ProMoT and the simulation tool Diana. Both are open-source programs intended for the dynamic analysis of chemical engineering and biological systems. They support the implementation and analysis of large nonlinear differential algebraic systems. An overview is given on the functionality of ProMoT and Diana. The use of the tools is illustrated by their application to an innovative fluidized bed crystallization process.
