Abstract

In a distillation column pressure is normally regulated by the vapor-condenser cooling water flow rate. If the pressure is high, increase the water flow to condense vapor faster. The reflux rate, feed rate, change in composition set point, boil-up rate are some of the factors that influences the pressure inside the column. The pressure also affects the speed of vapor through the column and internal reflux. The temperature inside the column and pressure are interdependent, so the interaction between these parameters are high. The objective is to control the bottom tray temperature (T1) and column pressure, nominally by manipulating the reflux flow and boilup rate.
