Abstract

Batch distillation has important for industries recent years.This is mainly due to its flexibility and capability to produce high purity product.The simulation of batch distillation columns during steady state operations is a very challenging modelling problem because of the complex dynamic behaviour.In order to verify this issue,simulation of this batch distillation column is to be performed by using computer aided design software and mathematical model so that the results can be validated.This study is required to model and simulate of fermentation product purification using batch distillation.In this study, simple mathematical models are proposed for the simulation of the dynamic behaviour during steady state operations from product of fermentation.Simulation of simple batch distillation was done by using mathematical method and computer simulator, MATLAB ®.The results from these simulations were used as a basis to validate the results obtained from experimentally. As conclusion,distillate and bottoms composition for ethanol drop gradually over time by using graphical method and the trend from simulation showed that the distillate and bottoms composition for ethanol increase and decrease over the time respectively.The declining trend was due to the unsteady state nature of batch distillation, where the lighter component at the bottoms will deplete over time.As using computer software simulation,it able to integrate the model equations for fermentation product purification based on suitable numerical methods and it also gain the understanding due to simulation.
