Upgrading the utility plant module for the generic sugar mill model* [Full subscriber]

Abstract The Sugar Milling Research Institute NPC published a MATLAB® model of a generic sugar mill, consisting of mass and energy balances of the individual units of a diffuser factory with mud filtration, five-effect evaporation and a three-boiling partial remelt scheme. The original model did not provide a means for balancing electrical power and steam production and demand and therefore was not able to predict the impact of process changes on overall energy consumption. The objective of this study was to expand the original model by including a power house and considering steam and electrical power balances. The upgraded utilities…
