Application of Process Integration to the Synthesis of Heat and Power Utility Systems Including Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and Industrial Heat Pumps
Book chapter, 2013

This chapter discusses the main aspects of application of Pinch Analysis to the analysis and synthesis of heat and power utility systems for industrial processes. The chapter first reviews the basic concepts for the use of the Process Grand Composite Curve as a targeting tool. The chapter then discusses the application of this tool for synthesis and design of utility systems of main relevance in industrial practice, such as centralised heating systems, Combined Heat and Power (CHP) production system and industrial heat pumps.
