Title: Gear's Procedure For Simulation Of Complex Distillation
Author: Maciel M.R.Wolf
Brito R.P.
Abstract: The objective of this work is to investigate the dynamic characteristics of an extractive distillation column for dehydration of an aqueous ethanol mixture. A model was developed which consider the main phenomena taking place, such as the effects of simultaneous mass and heat transfers, the hydraulic behavior of the plates and the rigorous consideration of the phase equilibrium representation. The mathematical modeling results in a system of differential algebraic equations which is very stiff and thus must be solved by a convenient method. In this work, Gear's procedure is used. The principal task in the utilization of the procedure is the choice of the method flag. Both the nonstiff method (Adams, AM) and the stiff method (backward differentiation formulas, BDF) have been satisfactory for the solution of the problem. However, the best results in terms of computational effort, have been obtained using the BDF method.
