{Free Webinar} Register for Planning, Online Optimizations & Troubleshooting of your Refinery FCC Unit with simulation software on Oct 28 @ 11 Eastern

Within a refinery, the fluidized catalytic cracker (FCC) unit is an important conversion process for refining crude oil. A FCC converts the high boiling, high molecular weight portions of a crude into valuable products such as high-octane gasoline and fuel oils. Operational efficiency is extremely important given today’s economic climate. Therefore, it is imperative that you are able to adequately plan and optimize process which typically requires offline studies and troubleshooting.


Discover how Schneider Electric Software customers are utilizing SimSciFCC Reactor model software for planning, online optimization, offline studies & troubleshooting of refinery fluidized catalytic cracker unit.

Announcing the release of DYNSIM 5.3.1

DYNSIM™ 5.3.1 – is now available on the Global Customer Support site

What is it?

DYNSIM™ provides rigorous process simulation platform from simulation and training offerings from SimSci. DYNSIM is a rigorous, first-principle dynamic simulator that predicts the time dependent behavior of industrial processes. A well designed DYNSIM model accurately depicts the same hydraulic, heat transfer and other equipment constraints as the actual plant.

Why is this important?

DYNSIM™ provides a single scalable application that helps:

· Lower capital costs and improve plant design—getting it right the first time

· Design checkout control systems for Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESDs) and Distributed Control Systems (DCSs), thus providing shorter commissioning time and increased availability

· Train and certify control room and field operators in a safe environment

Simply stated, DYNSIM enables clients to rise above the dynamic challenges of designing, commissioning, controlling, and operating a process plant safely, reliably and profitably.

What is new?

DYNSIM™ 5.3.1 offers:

· Added infrastructure support for Windows 10 Enterprise, Windows 8.1 Enterprise, Java RTE 1.8, Microsoft Excel 2013, and Flexera 11.13 licensing

· Password-protect flowsheets to prevent access to sensitive (IP) information or user-added models

· A new 3-way valve model which improves data entry and can be used directly in operator training

· New functionality which expands the simulation of tower pressurization and flooding

· Enhancements to DYNSIM Power Steam turbine library, reactions in M3Header and M3Drum models, and Mixer/Splitter input

Update to SimSci Licensing Options

Dear SimSci Software User,

This post provides an update on the licensing and security options from Flexera Software, who produces the security software that SimSci software products use for LAN, WAN, and Token Licensing. While Flexera Software FLExNetPublisher (FNP) 11.8 is currently widely used among SimSci customers, it has reached the end of limited lifecycle support. In an effort to support our customers, SimSci now supports the latest version of FlexNetPublisher, 11.13.

The SimSci team is implementing the following plan:
  • Existing FNP 11.8 security licenses will be upgraded the next time they are renewed to FNP 11.13 or the most recent version. However, we do recommend that you upgrade at your earliest opportunity to avoid any potential problems.
  • Older FLEXlm licenses will continue to work, however, if they stop working before the renewal period, they must be upgraded to FLEXlm 11.13 or latest.
  • Future installations of SimSci software will allow FNP 11.13, FNP 11.12, FNP 11.11 and respective TOKEN versions, and USB security options.
  • You can download the most recent server software installation and retrofit package to upgrade all your SimSci software from the Global Cutomer Support (GCS) site.
  • Customers migrating to Windows 10 must upgrade to FNP 11.13 immediately as previous versions of the server do not install in Windows 10.
We appreciate your patience through the migration and will do our best to minimize the impact on your use of our products. Please contact technical support if there are any problems.
