Abstract:

The applicability of a pulsed analog-digital computer to the problem of simulating a 100-plate fractional distillation column is investigated. It is concluded that such a combination would overcome the principal disadvantage of a purely analog simulation excessive equipment requirements and the principal disadvantage of a purely digital simulation excessive computation time. The mathematical model for the column is presented in detail, followed by a brief description of the pulsed analog-TX-O hybrid system. Author
