New kinetic method models VGO hydrocracking

A simple first-order kinetic model of hydrocracking reactions using pseudocomponents closes the gap between the process and a model of the separation and reaction network. The model delivers good results for predicting product distribution after the reaction process. Refinery engineering and planning tools can effectively use this model.Modeling is used for refinery planning and optimization. Refiners need improved modeling tools due to more-stringent new fuel specifications as well as higher refinery complexities.
