The HYSYS Aspen Plus software is used to develop a model of the reactor unit including a plug flow reactor and distillation sequence for conversion of gasoline fractions. The constructive and process variables of the key equipment were optimized stepwise with the model. The developed objective dimensionless function allows choosing optimal conditions for work in the mode of maximum yield or in the mode of maximum octane number of the product. The reactor was designed and optimal modes were found for both the reactor and fractionation unit.
