Total Site Methodology
Simon Perry, The University of Manchester, UK
The optimal design of large scale utility systems is complex, as these systems are required to provide the heat and power requirements for individual processes contained within the total processing site. Targeting methods have been proposed which enable engineers to fully scope options prior to more detailed design. Targeting for Total Sites is an extension of the established Pinch Technology Targeting methodologies and has been used extensively in industry. The Total Site Targeting methodology includes data extraction methods, the formation of Total Site Profiles, Total Site Composite Curves and the Site Utility Grand Composite Curve.
