As part of the requirements for the Chemical Engineering degree course, the students have to complete 6 credit hours in Plant Design Project (PDP). The PDP is divided into Plant Design Project I (CAB 4014) and Plant Design Project II (CAB 4014). The PDP I and PDP II are offered in the 9th and 10th semesters respectively. Each PDP course carries 3 credit hours. This guideline specifically addresses the Plant Design Project I (PDP I).
This guideline provides the necessary information for students/supervisors in carrying out their duties for PDP I in UTP.
The main objective of PDP 1 is to train/develop students in the application of all the elements of knowledge and skills that have been accumulated throughout the undergraduate program for solving design related problems for typical process industrial plant. The second objective of the course is to develop the skills of working in a team and to nurture leadership qualities. Written and oral communication skills as well as the capability in decision making are also nurtured by the project.
At the end of this course, students should be able to:
• Integrate their chemical engineering skills and knowledge in a detailed design of a chemical plant. • Screen a variety of potential process routes and identify the most cost-effective route for a chemical plant • Perform manual mass and energy balance calculation for a chemical plant • Optimize the energy usage by conducting appropriate pinch analysis for a chemical plant • Carry out simulation for a chemical plant using a computer-aided design/engineering software (e.g. ICON,ICON, PDS, PROCEDE, MATLAB)
The scopes of PDP I are as follows:
• Conducting literature survey: properties of the products, usage and cost, alternative process routes for manufacturing the product, chemical and physical property data for all the raw materials, intermediates and final products, environmental considerations, safety considerations, etc. • Identifying and selecting the best process route for a particular design project. • Developing the best possible process flowsheet for the selected chemical process route. • Developing the complete material and energy balance calculations for the selected process. • Using related computer-aided design/engineering software (e.g. ICON,...
