Abstract: Energy has increasingly become an immediate global concern. Energy recovery via heat integration is a long established practice in the chemical industry and scopes exist for improving the overall heat exchanger network (HEN) design performance. This work identifies several critical synthesis issues of direct practical relevance to heat exchanger network synthesis (HENS) problems and demonstrates the application of advanced modeling and optimization techniques for economical design. Specific focus is given to non-isothermal mixing, novel superstructures and models, and efficient optimization algorithm for simultaneous synthesis of HENs. While current HENS works mostly use heuristics and simplification based approaches, this work identifies, formulates and solves several important optimization issues in HENS and demonstrates significant improvement in overall cost and performance.
