Master's Thesis "Simulation of a dual reactor concept with direct firing for LOHC dehydrogenation"

In a 5-year project at the Helmholtz-Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg, a train for the public rail network is being developed which is driven by LOHC technology. For this, the power density of the dehydrogenation reactor concepts must be increased many times
over. A suggested concept relies on the application of two reactors operated at different temperatures.

Your task...

  • Development of an innovative process model of a dual reactor concept with
    commercially available software, e.g. Aspen Plus
  • Perform process optimization minimizing required equipment sizes
  • Propose a concept for energy integration by performing a PINCH analysis
  • Evaluation and documentation of the results

Your profile

  • Intrest in simulation of chemical processes
  • Initial experience in process simulation favorable
  • Knowledge of: Aspen Plus, Excel

Start November 2020
