A systematic procedure is proposed in this paper to incorporate the options of merging and/or splitting streams from multiple origins in process synthesis. In particular, design problems associated with the heat exchanger networks (HENS) are discussed in detail. First, an input-output system structure is described to facilitate the derivation of the modified LP and MILP models for calculating the design targets corresponding to the operating and capital costs. Next, construction procedure of a…

Automatic synthesis of optimum heat exchanger network configurations

TLDR
Theoretical properties as well as the implementation aspects of the proposed procedure for the automatic generation of networks are presented and the method is illustrated with three example problems.

Simultaneous optimization and heat integration of chemical processes

TLDR
A procedure is proposed for simultaneously handling the problem of optimal heat integration while performing the optimization of process flow sheets so as to insure that the minimum utility target for heat recovery networks is featured.
