Class for solving a generic Pressureexplicit threeparameter cubic equation of state. Does not implement any parameters itself; must be subclassed by an equation of state class which uses it. Works for mixtures or pure species for all properties except fugacity. All properties are derived with the CAS SymPy, not relying on any derivations previously published.
\[P=\frac{RT}{Vb}\frac{a\alpha(T)}{V^2 + \delta V + \epsilon}\]Main methods (in order they are called) are solve, set_from_PT, volume_solutions, set_properties_from_solution, and derivatives_and_departures.
solve calls check_sufficient_input, which checks if two of T, P, and V were set. It then solves for the remaining variable. If T is missing, method solve_T is used; it is parameter specific, and so must be implemented in each specific EOS. If P is missing, it is directly calculated. If V is missing, it is calculated with the method volume_solutions. At this point, either three possible volumes or one user specified volume are known. The value of a_alpha, and its first and second temperature derivative are calculated with the EOSspecific method a_alpha_and_derivatives.
If V is not provided, volume_solutions calculates the three possible molar volumes which are solutions to the EOS; in the singlephase region, only one solution is real and correct. In the twophase region, all volumes are real, but only the largest and smallest solution are physically meaningful, with the largest being that of the gas and the smallest that of the liquid.
set_from_PT is called to sort out the possible molar volumes. For the case of a userspecified V, the possibility of there existing another solution is ignored for speed. If there is only one real volume, the method set_properties_from_solution is called with it. If there are two real volumes, set_properties_from_solution is called once with each volume. The phase is returned by set_properties_from_solution, and the volumes is set to either V_l or V_g as appropriate.
set_properties_from_solution is a beast which calculates all relevant partial derivatives and properties of the EOS. 15 derivatives and excess enthalpy and entropy are calculated first. If the method was called with the quick flag, the method derivatives_and_departures uses a mess derived with SymPy’s cse function to perform the calculation as quickly as possible. Otherwise, the independent formulas for each property are used.
set_properties_from_solution next calculates beta (isobaric expansion coefficient), kappa (isothermal compressibility), Cp_minus_Cv, Cv_dep, Cp_dep, V_dep molar volume departure, U_dep internal energy departure, G_dep Gibbs energy departure, A_dep Helmholtz energy departure, fugacity, and phi (fugacity coefficient). It then calculates PIP or phase identification parameter, and determines the fluid phase with it. Finally, it sets all these properties as attibutes or either the liquid or gas phase with the convention of adding on _l or _g to the variable names.

Hvap
(T)[source]¶ Method to calculate enthalpy of vaporization for a pure fluid from an equation of state, without iteration.
\[\frac{dP^{sat}}{dT}=\frac{\Delta H_{vap}}{T(V_g  V_l)}\]Results above the critical temperature are meaningless. A firstorder polynomial is used to extrapolate under 0.32 Tc; however, there is normally not a volume solution to the EOS which can produce that low of a pressure.
Parameters: T : float
Temperature, [K]
Returns: Hvap : float
Increase in enthalpy needed for vaporization of liquid phase along the saturation line, [J/mol]
Notes
Calculates vapor pressure and its derivative with Psat and dPsat_dT as well as molar volumes of the saturation liquid and vapor phase in the process.
Very near the critical point this provides unrealistic results due to Psat‘s polynomials being insufficiently accurate.

Psat
(T, polish=False)[source]¶ Generic method to calculate vapor pressure for a specified T.
From Tc to 0.32Tc, uses a 10th order polynomial of the following form:
\[\ln\frac{P_r}{T_r} = \sum_{k=0}^{10} C_k\left(\frac{\alpha}{T_r} 1\right)^{k}\]If polish is True, SciPy’s newton solver is launched with the calculated vapor pressure as an initial guess in an attempt to get more accuracy. This may not converge however.
Results above the critical temperature are meaningless. A firstorder polynomial is used to extrapolate under 0.32 Tc; however, there is normally not a volume solution to the EOS which can produce that low of a pressure.
Parameters: T : float
Temperature, [K]
polish : bool, optional
Whether to attempt to use a numerical solver to make the solution more precise or not
Returns: Psat : float
Vapor pressure, [Pa]
Notes
EOSs sharing the same b, delta, and epsilon have the same coefficient sets.
All coefficients were derived with numpy’s polyfit. The intersection between the polynomials is continuous, but there is a step change in its derivative.
Form for the regression is inspired from [R292336352].

V_g_sat
(T)[source]¶ Method to calculate molar volume of the vapor phase along the saturation line.
Parameters: T : float
Temperature, [K]
Returns: V_g_sat : float
Gas molar volume along the saturation line, [m^3/mol]
Notes
Computers Psat, and then uses volume_solutions to obtain the three possible molar volumes. The highest value is returned.

V_l_sat
(T)[source]¶ Method to calculate molar volume of the liquid phase along the saturation line.
Parameters: T : float
Temperature, [K]
Returns: V_l_sat : float
Liquid molar volume along the saturation line, [m^3/mol]
Notes
Computers Psat, and then uses volume_solutions to obtain the three possible molar volumes. The lowest value is returned.

a_alpha_and_derivatives
(T, full=True, quick=True)[source]¶ Dummy method to calculate a_alpha and its first and second derivatives. Should be implemented with the same function signature in each EOS variant; this only raises a NotImplemented Exception. Should return ‘a_alpha’, ‘da_alpha_dT’, and ‘d2a_alpha_dT2’.
For use in solve_T, returns only a_alpha if full is False.
Parameters: T : float
Temperature, [K]
full : bool, optional
If False, calculates and returns only a_alpha
quick : bool, optional
Whether to use a SymPy csederived expression (3x faster) or individual formulas
Returns: a_alpha : float
Coefficient calculated by EOSspecific method, [J^2/mol^2/Pa]
da_alpha_dT : float
Temperature derivative of coefficient calculated by EOSspecific method, [J^2/mol^2/Pa/K]

check_sufficient_inputs
()[source]¶ Method to an exception if none of the pairs (T, P), (T, V), or (P, V) are given.

dPsat_dT
(T)[source]¶ Generic method to calculate the temperature derivative of vapor pressure for a specified T. Implements the analytical derivative of the two polynomials described in Psat.
As with Psat, results above the critical temperature are meaningless. The firstorder polynomial which is used to calculate it under 0.32 Tc may not be physicall meaningful, due to there normally not being a volume solution to the EOS which can produce that low of a pressure.
Parameters: T : float
Temperature, [K]
Returns: dPsat_dT : float
Derivative of vapor pressure with respect to temperature, [Pa/K]
Notes
There is a small step change at 0.32 Tc for all EOS due to the two switch between polynomials at that point.
Useful for calculating enthalpy of vaporization with the Clausius Clapeyron Equation. Derived with SymPy’s diff and cse.

Notes
[R304394] recommends that kappa1 be set to 0 for Tr > 0.7. This is not done by default; the class boolean kappa1_Tr_limit may be set to True and the problem resolved with that specified if desired. kappa1_Tr_limit is not supported for PV inputs.
Solutions for PV solve for T with SciPy’s newton solver, as there is no analytical solution for T
[R305394] and [R306394] are two more resources documenting the PRSV EOS. [R307394] lists kappa values for 69 additional compounds. See also PRSV2. Note that tabulated kappa values should be used with the critical parameters used in their fits. Both [R304394] and [R307394] only considered vapor pressure in fitting the parameter.

Whether to use a SymPy csederived expression (somewhat faster) or individual formulas.
Returns: T : float
Temperature, [K]
Notes
Not guaranteed to produce a solution. There are actually 8 solutions, six with an imaginary component at a tested point. The two temperature solutions are quite far apart, with one much higher than the other; it is possible the solver could converge on the higher solution, so use T inputs with care. This extra solution is a perfectly valid one however.

ALPHA_FUNCTIONS
[source]¶ Bases:
thermo.eos.GCEOS
Basic class with a number of attached alpha functions for different applications, all of which have no parameters attached. These alpha functions should be used for fitting purposes; new EOSs should have their alpha functions added here. The first and second derivatives should also be implemented. Efficient implementations are discouraged but possible.
All parameters should be in self.alpha_function_coeffs. This object is inspired by the work of [R317477], where most of the alpha functions have been found.

Examples
Swap out the default alpha function from the SRK EOS, replace it the same, a new method that takes a manually specified coefficient.
