Combined optimisation and process integration techniques for the synthesis of fuel cells systems

A method that combines process modelling and process integration techniques has been developed to tackle the design of complex integrated systems like fuel cell systems. This method uses the equations of the composite curves as constraints to model the ideal heat exchanger network and the corresponding utility system. When combined with the use of process modelling techniques, this method allows to synthesize optimized fuel cell integrated systems with high efficiency and that integrates the technological design constraints.
