Kumar, S (2010) Modelling and Simulation of Ethyl Acetate Reactive Distillation Column using ASPEN PLUS. BTech thesis.
In this thesis, we study the modeling and simulation of a reactive distillation column for the production of ethyl acetate from acetic acid and ethyl alcohol using ASPENPLUS. Starting from a conventional configuration, which involves feeding in a single tray, different configuration is proposed and various specifications are studied for the attainment of higher conversion and purity at the steady state. In ASPEN DYNAMICS an analysis of the column dynamics is then performed. Cascade control structure is studied for the base design.
