Prerequisite
Basics of heat transfer, mass transfer and reaction engineering
Rationale
Chemical process design requires the selection of a series of processing steps and their integration to form a complete manufacturing system. This course emphasizes selection of the steps as individual operations and their integration to form an efficient process. Also, the process will normally operate as part of an integrated manufacturing site consisting of a number of processes serviced by a common utility system.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Learn the basic heat exchanger network synthesis (HENS).
2. Develop the pinch design approach to inventing a network.
3. Study the derivation of network structures for minimization of annual costs.
4. Configure the multiple utility design problems.
5. Learn about the Environment Protection, Safety Considerations & Engineering Ethics
6. Learn about the Energy Integrating in reactor networks
7. Understand the Energy Integrated Distillation Processes
8. Understand the concept of reactor network synthesis. And enable to do the reactor network design using the attainable region.
9. Understand the production of multiple products
10. Design the Batch scheduling.
11. Understand the Design and Scheduling of Batch Processes.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
