چکیده:

Carbon dioxide emition is well known as the main source of global warming and reduction of carbon dioxide by hydrogen is the interesting topic for prevention of this side effect. For studying the CO2 removal a hybrid Neural Network Model (NNM) was developed to estimate outlet of a differential methanol reactor as a function of time, temperature, pressure CO, CO2, H2O and H2 mole fractions. The hybrid model consists of two parts; a mechanistic model and a neural model. The mechanistic model consist of heat transfer, mass transfer and pressure drop equations which calculate the effluent temperature of a differential reactor by taking outlet mole fraction from neural model. Neural model provides estimation of outlet mole fraction of a differential reactor. This estimation is fed to mechanistic model. The prepared hybrid model is used to simulate and identify an industrial methanol reactor. The bed of reactor was assimilated to pile of layers, each corresponding to a Neural Network
(NN) so the associate NN could predict outlet composition of each layer as a function of time. The model was successfully tested with plant experimental data. The insights of this research indicate a very fast responding model in comparison to traditional models to demonstrate CO2 reduction as a function of time and reactor length. Variation of temperature and other compositions with time and bed height are investigated in this article.
