Application of Thermodynamics to the Allocation of Cumulative Exergy Consumption in the Multiproduct Separation Processes
Based on the minimum separation work theory, a novel allocation parameter of cumulative exergy consumption, the minimum separation power of the product stream (MSPS), is proposed in the separation processes in this article. The related mathematical models are established. The application of this approach to a case study is provided.
