Title: A Model for Blending Motor Gasoline Case Study: Tema Oil Refinery Ltd.
Authors: Okoto, Anson Francis
Issue Date: 10-Apr-2013
Abstract: Without accurate blending correlations, any attempt to blend different gasoline cuts can be expected to achieve non-optimum results. The purpose of this work is to propose a method for predicting research octane numbers, Reid vapour pressure and the density for two component gasoline blends. A new mathematical model for blending of gasoline is presented in this paper. It is a model which combines the idea of linear blending and mixing problem to develop three first order ordinary differential equations. Numerical method specifically Runge-Kutta is applied to solve the presented models in our research by applying a written code in MATLAB Software. Also a generic analytical solution was generated to solve the equations .This new mathematical models for blending of motor gasoline is illustrated with some studies based on data from the Quality control department Tema Oil Refinery, Ghana.
