Abstract

Heat integration of continuous processes is a widely studied research area, where many approaches has been developed to minimize cold and hot utility usage. Batch processes require additional consideration for the planning of the heat exchanger network. Since the flows are not always present in the system, their timing has to be considered as well. Adonyi et. al. (2003) has presented an algorithm to minimize utility usage for a given time horizon. However, their approach assumed, that heat exchangers are present for all of the hot-cold stream pairs. An extension of Adonyi et. al.'s approach by allowing the streams to have heat exchanges with multiple other streams is presented. This approach also takes into account the number of available heat exchangers and their scheduling. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the CHISA 2012 - 20th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering and PRES 2012 - 15th Conference on Process Integration, Modelling and Optimisation for Energy Saving and Pollution Reduction (Prague, Czech Republic 8/25-29/2012).
