Emerson Mimic Simulation Software digital twin software for process plants

Monday, 13 May, 2019 | Supplied by: Emerson Automation Solutions



The latest release of Emerson’s Mimic Simulation Software is designed to make it easier for plants to develop a more accurate digital twin. Updated modelling capabilities, usability enhancements and tuning options will help engineers more easily create, modify and integrate dynamic simulations for process improvements.

Emerson has upgraded Mimic Advanced Modeling Objects with blocks and objects to improve simulation, making simulation design easier for a wide range of industries including oil and gas, liquefied natural gas, refining and petrochemical. Advanced Modeling Objects provide rigorous first-principles dynamic models of plant unit operations such as those performed by separators, compressors, heat exchangers, valves, turbines, evaporators and more. Plate and frame heat exchanger and three-phase flash vapour-liquid-liquid equilibrium (VLLE) separation objects are now available, as are plug flow reactor objects that reduce the engineering time and complexity of model development for continuous processes in the chemical and hydrocarbon industries.

Organisations can also use simpler reaction modelling to more easily simulate reactions in a vessel. These models offer increased flexibility in the use of reactions for organisations such as those in the specialty chemical and life sciences industries, which commonly use such medium-fidelity simulations. Users can create simplified reactions in engineering design — without the need for complex or private reaction data, or a background in kinetics and thermodynamics — to achieve desired results, such as the impact of a reaction on pH.

Mimic is now natively integrated with AspenTech’s HYSYS simulation software, providing control platform integration and training functionality to the HYSYS simulation.
