The growing interest in hydrogen as the fuel of the future requires manufacturing plants to be operating efficiently using data-driven methods. With online data servers, engineers have a seemingly infinite amount of data at their fingertips. Reconciling this data for use in more advanced tools or calculations can be a tedious and labor-intensive process.
By constructing a versatile process flowsheet architecture and integrating online plant data with Aspen Simulation Workbook™, we have a single source that can reconcile key process variables for over 20 hydrogen plants to monitor and evaluate plant performance. In this session from OPTIMIZE™ 21, Air Products covers the implementation and the benefits derived from this approach.
