This is a design system about the use of a Parabolic Trough Collector (PTC) combined with a Heat exchanger unit (HEX) for the temperature increase process of the crude oil. This process is needed as a pre-stage of the Fractionation Column. Therminol-VP1 heat transfer oil (HTO) has been used through the PTC. A heat exchanger is a device used to transfer heat between a solid object and a fluid, or between two or more fluids. The fluids may be separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing or they may be in direct contact. User can assign the following:
1-Cold side temperature, oC.
2-Hot side temperature, oC.
3-Working fluid sides (Therminol-VP1 HTO vs Crude Oil).
4-Type of heat exchanger (Counter-Shell & Tube).


**MatLab-SimuLink should be used to run the model.
