UniSim Design for Control

Oct. 10, 2007

Honeywell’s UniSim ® Design is an intuitive and interactive process modeling offering that enables engineers to create steady-state and dynamic models for plant design, performance monitoring, troubleshooting, operational improvement, and business planning. It provides users best-in-class technologies and comprehensive features, along with Honeywell's domain expertise in process simulation and operator training.

Using industry-specific unit operation models and powerful tools to optimize process and operating parameters for different operation conditions. UniSim Design enables the steady-state simulation of oil and gas, refining, chemical, and other processes. Users are empowered to interactively make decisions by getting immediate responses to assumptions using a high-speed engine with both forward and backward calculation capabilities.

UniSim Design’s dynamic simulation capabilities allow steady state models to be extended to transient models.  Consistent thermodynamics and model configurations can be used for process transient analysis, control strategy, controllability studies, and operator training applications. UniSim Design includes a full complement of control element models and transient analysis tools to aid in the analysis of simulation results.

The advanced controller such as Profit® Controller in UniSim Design can also help users to build controller models (additional license required) and validate controller design before they are implemented in the real pant.

In addition, UniSim Design Suite, the total UniSim solution includes:

  • The UniSim Operations Suite, which provides highly accurate, multi-function dynamic simulation to improve operating capabilities and enhance staff skills.
  • The UniSim Optimization Suite, which ensures responsiveness to changes in business demands through close linkages with planning, scheduling and management functions.

UniSim extends the capabilities of Honeywell’s Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) by improving its ability to gather data throughout the plant and coupling it with process knowledge embedded in process simulation models. UniSim software is also designed to integrate with Invensys, Siemens, Yokogawa, Emerson and ABB advanced control and operator training systems.
