Abstract

The paper considers the problem of maximum efficiency for the system of distillation columns. Columns in such systems are connected in parallel or sequential way. The mixture being separated is assumed to be close to ideal one. Authors parameterize the relationship between feed flow rate and heat duties of a steady-state binary distillation column using two parameters: the reversible efficiency and the irreversibility coefficient. This relationship is later being used to solve the problems about optimal distribution of heat and feed flows within the system. The results obtained allow to estimate minimum heat energy demand for distillation of the given feed flow, maximum performance and efficiency of the system.
