Thermodynamic Properties in HYSYS for the Peng-Robinson Equation Property Package Physical properties are predicted by HYSYS using the following thermodynamic based equations V H H ID 1 P Z 1 T P dV RT RT T V V ID 1 P S So P 1 ln Z ln o dV RT R T V V P Where the Ideal Gas Enthalpy basis ( H ID ) used by HYSYS is equal to the ideal gas Enthalpy of Formation at 25°C and 1 atm. The Ideal Gas Enthalpy basis ( H ID ) used by HYSYS changes with temperature according to the coefficients on the Tdep tab for each individual component. (1) (2) An example of the prediction of the enthalpy of a single component is given below where the values of a f T and b are from the Peng-Robinson equation of state.

To see these properties go to the Simulation Basis Manager and View the Peng-Robinson Property package. Select View and then select the components tab. (5) (7) (8) (9) Select a component and look at the properties. These are snapshots from the TDep tab or Temperature Dependent properties. Note for volumetric flows: (See Simulation Basis A.5.2) The volumetric flow rate reference state is defined as 60°F and 1 atm when using Field units or 15°C and 1 atm when using SI units.
