Heated TankSnapshot of the front panel of the simulator:
Description of the simulated systemIn this simulator a thermal system is simulated. The system is a continuously stirred heated tank with continuous mass (liquid) inflow and outflow. The front panel of the simulator shows the system. The mathematical model can be derived from an energy balance for the liquid in the tank. The energy balance can be expressed as the following first order differential equation:
der
The simulator is based on the model above. AimsThe aim of the simulator and the tasks below is to develop the understanding of the dynamic properties of a continuously stirred heated tank with continuous heating and inlet flow and outlet flow. This system . MotivationStirred tanks are common in industrial plants. The dynamic properties of heated tanks, heat exchangers, and reactors have many similarities with stirred tanks. TaskUnless otherwise stated, you should use the default values of the parameters (a default value is retrieved via right-click on the element / Reinitialize to Default on the front panel).
