Energy and LCC Optimised Design of Compressed Air Systems: A Mixed Integer Optimisation Approach with General Applicability

Abstract

Compressed air systems account for much of the total energy use by European industries. Air compressors alone account for over 10% of UK industrial energy use (>;15,000 GWh). Many of these systems are not optimized to save energy and money, and to have more reliable compressed air power. We present here an integrated optimization solution for the design of… (More)
