Anybody know any school who conduct courses on this simulation tools.

Ihave basic knowledge of dynamic simulation using mat lab

Obviously, your first choice should be to check with your employer.  Otherwise, for Hysis and Aspen, have a look at their web site...
http://support.aspentech.com/supportpublictrain/TrainHome.htm

and in particular, this listing...

It has been some time since I've worked with ProII but I bet they have similar resources.

As another possibility, you may want to check with a local college or university.  They may offer a class as part of their curriculum.

Contact the directly (unless what you really is asking for is illegal copies winky smile ). If they have a program they will tell you.

BTW: Why do you all INSIST on calling it "hysis" - the real name is HYSYS - with two "Y"'s

Right on MortenA!  I have been irked many-a-time with the common misspelling of HYSYS.

H2O2Engg:  
If you want training regarding a certain piece of simulation software than the individual vendors is where you need to go.  If you are looking for general training in process simulation then you may have more options.

For the software, as MortenA has stated, you also need to go directly to the vendor.  Aspen owns HYSYS so you don't have to go that far to look.  They offer academic licenses.  You say this is for academic purposes.  Is this at a university?  I would hope that any university in today's day and age that offers a chemical engineering program would have at least one type of process simulator if not several licensed.

All these softares have useful manuals describing how to use the software with a lot of worked out examples. Just follow them and then build your own model. It's that easy.

This forum does not support spread og illegal copies of software. If you want to buy it: All manufactors have internet sites where you can locate a vendor near you.

None of the packages you mentioned are cheap, in the sense that few individuals can afford them.  Most companies pay commercial fees and get a supported product.  Universities have special arrangements to enable use by students during regular semester courses.  Such academic licenses prohibit use for any other purpose.

This is as it should be, since these are very sophisticated programs that cost a bundle (hundreds of man-years) to develop and support.

First, there was a "nearly" free version of Aspen, a fairly complete process simulator, in the public domain, available through the Department of Energy.  I used this in the early days, before Aspen Plus went private in 1981 or so.  I don't even know if it's still available or what the terms and conditions are.  Using this is a real challenge, as the learning curve is very steep.  Also, it is basically unsupported.

Second, the old ChemShare program is available as a Windows application called Winsim.

Finally, if cost is an issue, my favorite is Dick Russell's PD Plus.  This is the best priced, most robust, and certainly the fastest product out there in my opinion.  Even individual engineers should be able to afford it quite easily.  For more information, see:

 http://www.deerhaventech.com

PD Plus has beaten several of the major simulators by factors of over a hundred in many large-scale, side-by-side tests I have conducted personally.  It has a flat file, keyword-driven interface that I learnt to use in a week, being a creature of the old keyword-driven programs of the 1970s and 1980s.  It doesn't do electrolytes and such exotic things, but for normal refining, petrochemical, and complex chemicals systems, it's just great.  Best of all, you get timely, personal support from the maestro Russell himself.
