Aspen HYSYS

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Aspen HYSYS (or simply HYSYS) is a chemical process simulator used to mathematically model
chemical processes, from unit operations to full chemical plants and refineries. HYSYS is able to
perform many of the core calculations of chemical engineering, including those concerned
with mass balance, energy balance, vapor-liquid equilibrium, heat transfer, mass
transfer, chemical kinetics, fractionation, and pressure drop.[1] HYSYS is used extensively in
industry and academia for steady-state and dynamic simulation, process design, performance
modelling, and optimization.[2][3]

Etymology[edit]
HYSYS is a portmanteau formed from "Hyprotech" the name the company which created the
software, and Systems.[2]

History[edit]
HYSYS was first conceived and created by the Canadian company Hyprotech, founded by
researchers from the University of Calgary.[4][5] The HYSYS Version 1.1 Reference Volume was
published in 1996.[6] In May 2002, AspenTech acquired Hyprotech, including HYSYS.[7] Following
a 2004 ruling by the United States Federal Trade Commission, AspenTech was forced to divest
its Hyprotech assets,[8] including HYSYS source code, ultimately selling these to Honeywell.
Honeywell was also able to hire a number of HYSYS developers, ultimately mobilizing these
resources to produce UNISIM.[9] The divestment agreement specified that Aspentech would retain
rights to market and develop most Hyprotech products (including HYSYS) royalty-free.[10] As of
late 2016, AspenTech continues to produce HYSYS.[11]
