ENS2116 Process Systems Analysis
Credit Points: 15
ENS2115 Process Engineering Fundamentals

This unit introduces students to a systems approach to analysing and understanding the structure and behaviour of industrial processes. The context and requirements that give rise to process systems are examined along with the concepts of unit operations and unit processes. The nature of individual units and complex flowsheets is explored through analysis of degrees of freedom and solvability issues. Techniques for the decomposition of large, complex systems to smaller problems are developed. The application of computer-aided flowsheeting tools to facilitate process analysis, including economic factors, environmental impacts, sensitivity studies, and overall optimisation is also covered.
