A modular process modeling tool for the analysis of energy use and cost in the pulp and paper industry

Lindell, Kristian LU and Stenström, Stig LU (2006) In Drying Technology 24(11). p.1335-1345
Abstract
A novel process modeling tool to facilitate the study of how various process changes in the paper dryer section affect the mill-wide energy system has been developed. A model library with steady-state block models describing paper dryers, heat recovery equipment, and auxiliary systems on component level have been developed using the software Extend. Process models are then created from these block models using graphical programming. In this article, the characteristics of the developed tool are described and a case study where the tool is shown to be useful for analyzing the energy performance of a hybrid dryer section is presented.
