Research on Integrated Optimization for Production Process and Steam Power System
Steam power system and production process are the important parts of the process industry. Steam power system provides the production process steam, electricity and other energy it needs, and the relationship between them is very close. In order to obtain the maximum benefit of the total plant, the integrated optimization of the production process and steam power system is very important. In this paper, the framework of the integrated optimization model is established. An iterative optimization method based on genetic algorithm is proposed to solve the integrated model. Simulation example shows the effectiveness of the proposed method.
