Modelling of Chemical Process Systems gives readers a feel for multiscale modeling. The book starts with the history of modeling and its usefulness, describing modeling steps in detail. Examples have been chosen carefully from both conventional chemical process systems to contemporary systems, including fuel cell and micro reforming processes. Each chapter is accompanied by a case study that explains the step-by-step modeling methodology. The book also introduces the application of machine learning techniques to model chemical process systems.

When combined, the information in the book makes it an indispensable reference for academics and professionals working in modeling and simulation.

Key Features
