Unlike a single two-stream heat exchanger, design and operation of heat
exchanger networks are usually an inverse problem.
Methods for rating, sizing,
simulation, regulation and synthesis of two-stream and multistream heat
exchanger networks based on a general matrix solution are developed.
corresponding optimization problems are formulated which yield better results
than those in the literature.
heat exchanger network, multistream heat exchanger, dynamic
simulation, heat exchanger network synthesis, optimization.
In many industrial processes heat exchanger networks (HEN) are used to transfer
heat among more than two fluids, in which the cold fluids are heated by the hot
fluids which need to be cooled and vice versa.
In this way a large amount of heat
energy can be recovered from the working fluids and therefore ...
