Abstract [en]

The purpose of this project is to find an identification tag that can be used in a future automated pinch analysis tool. It can be used to further analyse composite curves and pinch results by tracking the original streams that was converted. In real life situations, retrofitting a process industries streams, can decrease heat demands and costs. A pinch analysis and a heat exchange network is created with fixed and flexible flows to show a recommendation on how the system model can handle this type of situations. The models have been created by hand with support from pinch literature and the calculations validated with mathematical software such as matlab and other graphing tools. The literature study and pinch modelling resulted in a recommendation of tagging Hstart and Hend for each individual stream. By using a geographical tag in a coordinate system the analyst will be able to find the original streams in the pinch analysis and composite curves. The project also resulted in a heating exchange network created from the fixed and flexible data set. The enthalpy differences between the ideal pinch result and the fixed data set is smaller than one might expect because of enthalpy abundance in the specific intervals.
