Summary

Methods for the rational use and conversion of energy in industrial processes : how to analyse the energy usage, calculate the heat recovery by pinch analysis, define heat exchanger network, integrate heat pumps and cogeneration units and realise exergy analysis of energy conversion systems.

Content

Rational use and conversion of energy in industrial processes.

 

Methodology for the energy efficiency audit of industrial processes. Principles of the exergy analysis of industrial processes and energy conversion systems. Principles of the process integration using the pinch analysis method. Identification of the process efficiency improvement options. Optimal integration of the energy conversion systems. Thermo-economic evaluation of energy savings options. Application to one industrial process case study.

Keywords
