Julia to ASPEN


#1

Hello,

I am totally new to Julia. I would like to know if it’s possible to link Aspen Plus to Julia, Is it possible? Can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance!

If you can call it from C, C++ or Python, then you can call it from Julia.

It is possible or probable that nobody here knows what Aspen plus is, though, so you might want to give more info.

There appears to be some COM (OLE) integration available, so that would probably be the approach to try:

Python’s COM support could be used via PyCall.jl with minimal overhead.

Thank you so much. I would try to work this out for Julia in similar manner.

. Thank you!
Aspen is a process modeling tool that simulates industrial processes, I wanted to develop the model for a reactor using Julia and then link it to the process flow sheet.
