Logo of JMS 2010 symposiumJMS2010 was organized in Merida, Venezuela on November 24-26, 2010. Among the presentations made on modeling and simulation, one from PDVSA Intevep described the development of a CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation component: “Modelo de los reactores de la tecnología HDHPLUS(R) como componentes de simulación interoperables”.

The component developed models a HDHPLUS reactor which is a slurry technology for deep hydrocracking of vacuum residue feeds.The component developed models a HDHPLUS reactor which is a slurry technology for deep hydrocracking of vacuum residue feeds. The paper, co-authored by Cesar PERNALETE, Bradley TORRES MANAURE and Argenis MORENO VILLAMIZAR, described also the use of the Unit Operation within the COCO simulator.
