Subsets of PD-PLUS for Limited Uses

Several subsets of PD-PLUS are available for users with limited needs. These cover the areas of distillation, flash and heat curves, and rotating equipment. They are described as follows.

PDP-DIST - This package includes the rigorous distillation and flash blocks, the heat curve and custom stream report facilities, all of the physical property options, the crude breakdown program, and the large databank from the full simulator, as described above. The package provides the essentials for those who need only distillation and flash simulation capability.

PDP-FLASH - This subset includes the flash and calculator blocks, the heat curve and custom stream report facilities, all of the physical property options, the crude breakdown program, and the large databank from the full simulator, as described above. It addresses the needs of those with only flash and heat curve needs, such as for designing heat exchange equipment. Through the calculator block, it also permits interfacing with external software for special applications.

PDP-COMP - This subset includes the compressor, expander, and liquid pump blocks, all of the physical property options, and the large databank from the full simulator, as described above. It performs thermodynamically rigorous calculations for rotating equipment.
