On-line control of the heat exchanger network under fouling constraints


  • Markowski, Mariusz
  • Trzcinski, Przemyslaw


The article presents a mathematical model for on-line control of a heat exchanger network (HEN), aiming at maximization of heat recovery. The model assumes that HEN operates at steady state. The paper presents the method of processing measurement data in order to separate periods of time, which corresponds to the steady state of HEN.
