Mathematical Modeling of Industrial Heat Exchanger System


Article Preview

In manufacturing and industrial fields used heat exchanger to control of temperature weather as a boiler or cooling system. This system is not stable as the temperature output can easily disturb by noise and other disturbance such as surrounding temperature. To improve the heat exchanger system performance, the mathematical model‘s needed. The heat exchanger mathematical model in this case is constructed using dynamic modelling based on real parameters of the heat exchanger. The simulation result shows almost similar trend of responses with the experiment result, it means they are can used as a model of the heat exchanger.
