Increases in the run speed of readily available computing resources has significantly improved the performance of distillation design and simulation algorithms. Presented here is an algorithm for the simulation of a binary distillation column with a near instantaneous response of the output variables to changes in the input variables (low latency). A discussion of the evolution of distillation analysis methods in conjunction with the improvements in computing power is included. Emphasis is on the impact of these advanced methods on the demonstration and characterization of distillation concepts. A direction for the development of fast algorithms for the modeling of multi-component distillation systems is also discussed.
