Multiphase flow simulation from within the Sim4Me portal

12 August 2008

IPS has released the Inplant version 4.1, a program that rigorously simulates multiphase flow in plant utility and relief networks. It provides the power and flexibility to model applications ranging from a depressurising study of a single vessel to the design and rating of a complete cooling water network for an entire refinery or petrochemical plant.

The latest version of Inplant software now incorporates the recently introduced SimSci-Esscor Sim4Me Portal, which enables the use of Inplant software via a Microsoft Excel interface.

The Sim4Me Portal constructs a simple, bi-directional communication link between the steady-state simulator, SimSci-Esscor’s Inplant, Pipechase or Pro/II simulation software, and a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. The Sim4Me Portal enables developers to create an Excel spreadsheet that is Inplant aware, allowing users to execute an Inplant simulation from within an Excel software application.

Microsoft Excel spreadsheet software provides the ideal platform for engineers to create an operations interface that can be used by Inplant software experts and non-experts alike, tapping the user’s imagination in ways that are all but impossible with a pre-configured interface. Communication between the flow simulator and Excel spreadsheet software is bi-directional and requires absolutely no coding skills on the part of the user.
