Dynamic Modeling and Simulation of Catalytic Naphtha Reforming

H.M.Arani1, S.Shokri2, M.Shirvani3

Abstract—In this paper, according to the recent progresses in naphtha reforming technology, dynamic modeling of catalytic naphtha reforming process is studied. The dynamic model is composed of the reforming reaction model, the heat exchanger model, furnace model, which together, are capable to capture the major dynamics that occur in this process system. Kinetic modeling of the reactions of the fixed bed reactors connected in series form the most significant part of the overall simulation effort. MATLAB software in SIMULINK mode is used for dynamic simulation. Hougen-Watson Langmuir-Hinshelwood type reaction rate expressions are used to represent rate of each reaction.The results show models are in fair agreement with the actual operating data.
