The liquid rate can be controlled by either direct measurement and control or by inferring a rate based on energy and mass balance around the unit and controlling a secondary stream. The direct measurement system has higher capital and operating costs. The indirect method has lower capital and operating costs, but has a higher risk of upsets and larger uncertainties.
This presentation reviews the results of Monte Carlo modeling of a crude unit to evaluate the economic benefits of the direct approach versus the uncertainties in the indirect approach.
