Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit plays most important role in the economy of a modern refinery that it is use for value addition to the refinery products. Because of the importance of FCC unit in refining, considerable effort has been done by scientists till now on the modelling of this unit for better understanding and improved productivity. To model a FCC unit we have to know the unknown kinetic parameters of the governing equations.
The basic aim of this paper is to prove that MATLABTM can be used as a tool to find unknown kinetic parameters of governing equations for VGO cracking. We have developed a strategic method to find the unknown kinetic parameters using MATLAB and compare the simulation results with the results obtained from methods available in literature and it was found to be the best agreement.
