  • EXSYS II: an expert system for optimal insertion of intensified energy saving technologies (IEST) in the industrial processes. - Publishable final report


Publishable final report of project JOE3-CT97-0070

Offering more compact and more efficient unit operations that are usually more environmental friendly, the Intensified Energy Saving Technologies (IEST) are in good position for improving the energy efficiency and the performances of the industrial processes. The goal of the EXSYS II project has been to develop a new methodology and its implementation tools to quantify the potential of application of the IEST, determine their proper sizing and the conditions of their optimal insertion in industrial production processes. This has been done by integrating the expertise of the different consortium partners in a so-called "expert system" able to guide a user who has to solve the problem of selecting the most appropriate IEST for a given process. The tools are a set of technological databases quantitatively describing the IEST, an expert system to help the user to apply the methodology and integrated optimization computer codes to compute and evaluate the optimal insertion of IEST in existing and new processes.
