Abstract

The relevance of this work is due to the need to increase the quality of the natural gas treatment. The aim of the work was to study separation process with a software package that simulates changes in the technological performance of the low-temperature separation installation in real time for the study of the effect of operating conditions changes on separate devices and technological system as a whole. As a method of research, a method of mathematical modeling of chemical processes has been selected. As an example, we developed the three-stage separator computer model. Thus, the study used a program module for calculating on a three-stage separator - one of the most important elements of low-temperature separation installation - considering the effect of control system para-meters (control valves for gas and liquids) and the generally accepted principles of separation of three-phase mixture (Stokes' law, the laws of phase equilibrium, etc.).
