Abstract

In this work, a novel systematic approach for the synthesis of heat exchanger network (HEN) with trigeneration system via multiple cascades automated targeting (MCAT) is presented. The optimisation objective is to locate the minimum total operating cost (TOC) of the system. The minimum hot and cold utilities of the HEN, allocation of utilities and potential power generation as well as the type of fuel can be determined via proposed approach. A case study of formic acid processing plant is solved to illustrate proposed approach.
