Released as a BETA version in Build 139.34246.

General Description

The OLI Pond model is used in the Dynamic mode to emulate an Evaporation Pond. The user has the option to divide the pond into two layers, a bed where most of the solids settle and a clarified liquor layer for liquids, or consider the pond as a single layer. In any case, the concentration of the pore liquid in the bed layer and the concentration of the supernatant pond liquid is always equal and in equilibrium with the solids.

The OLI Pond model allows the user to 'call' the OLI solver to determine the state of a pond contents.

Notes

  1. The user MUST have added and configured a OLI Model Configuration unit in the SysCAD project before this unit can function.
  2. Installation of OLI is required to use the OLI functionality in SysCAD. If the user wishes to install OLI, please see https://www.olisystems.com for more information.

Model Theory

The OLI Pond Model uses the OLI algorithms and data to determine the status of the aqueous solution.

Mapping of the SysCAD to OLI streams is done via Species Mapping.

The OLI Pond can be incorporated into a SysCAD flowsheet, it can be connected with SysCAD inlet and outlet streams.

  1. User connects the OLI Pond with SysCAD input streams,
  2. The SysCAD feed stream(s) using SysCAD species is converted into OLI "Input" using OLI Species. The species mapping is defined in the corresponding OLI Model Configuration unit model.
  3. The OLI Pond calls the OLI algorithms to determine the status of the mixture using the converted OLI "input" data.
  4. The OLI results are displayed in the "output" tab using OLI species.
  5. The results are converted back into SysCAD species. Please see Species Mapping for more information.

NOTES:

  • The Input, Output and Diff tab pages are displayed using OLI species, as defined in the database (.dat) specified in the corresponding OLI Model Configuration unit model.
  • The species used in the SysCAD project are shown on the optional Sp pages, shown as part of the QFeed, QBypass, QUnmapped, QRxnProdBypass and QProd pages.
  • The calculations performed are similar to using OLI directly, except the contents of the SysCAD stream are mapped to equivalent OLI species using the settings defined in the OLI Model Configuration unit model.
  • Important note on energy balance: When EquilibrateFeedStreams is checked, the Pond feed enthalpy in the OLI context is determined from the equilibrium composition of the Pond feed as calculated by OLI at the SysCAD stream temperature and pressure. If one or more of the SysCAD streams feeding the OLI Pond are far from equilibrium and will generate significant heat upon reaction (e.g. a stream containing unreacted HCl and NaOH, for example), the OLI calculated heat of reaction will be incorrect. In this case, the unreacted species should be reacted prior to feeding them to the OLI Pond. Ensure that both the OLI and SysCAD energy balances are reasonable. See TCE Enthalpy Reporting for more details.

Workflow

The suggested workflow for configuring the model is:

  1. Make sure the project contains at least one of the OLI Model Configuration model, and the model is loaded with the correct OLI database you would like to use for the OLI Pond model.
  2. On the OLIPond tab page, configure the model - methods, pressures, etc.
  3. On the TCE tab page, select the correct ChemModel (to match step 1) (Note: In older builds, this selection was made on the OLIPond tab page).
  4. Select other TCE options (Bypass, CFE, etc.)
  5. Perform an equilibrium calculation by pressing Solve in SysCAD.
  6. The Results are displayed in the OLIResults and Output tabs.
  7. Check and fix any species mapping issues. (OLI resulting species may change if the operating conditions change, so it is likely a change of temperature or feed composition will result in different OLI species.)
