A Unified Targeting Algorithm for Diverse Process Integration Problems

Uday V. Shenoy,     Synew Technologies, India


This chapter demonstrates how a single algorithm suffices to establish the complete minimum-resource targets for diverse Process Integration problems from heat/mass exchange to allocation networks for water, hydrogen, carbon emission and material reuse. It discusses the basis and the systematic calculation steps for the Unified Targeting Algorithm (UTA), along with the graphical representation of the tabular UTA data in terms of the Grand Composite Curve (GCC) or the Limiting Composite Curve (LCC) depicting net load deficit/surplus at various levels. The chapter includes nine practical case studies from diverse ...
