A simulation program of distillation column dynamics and control is, written in C language, the main objective of this thesis. Various types of control configurations to be studied can be selected from the program. A binary system of a distillation column is developed for hydrocarbon substances. The controlled variables are mole fraction of the light component in distillate or bottom product, the reflux accumulator level and the column base level. In the simulation program, a graphical user interface is incorporated to help a user change the operating data and run the program via the mouse click. The results of the calculation are shown in graphic mode. Finally, the program is verified using HYSIM software, and the deviation of temperature profile is found to be within 3 degree Farenheits.
