# Series-Parallel Optimization Model for Heat Exchanger Network

### Bin Yang, Shiqi Liu, Zhouli Zhao

#### Abstract

Based on the parallel heat exchanger network, a series-parallel optimization model of the heat exchanger network for industrial circulating water system is established. The flow rate and temperature of the heat exchangers in the network can be calculated automatically. The mathematical formulation exhibit a mix-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) structure which can be solved by GAMS. A case study is done to compare the differences between the series-parallel model and the parallel model. The result shows that this series-parallel model can reduce fresh water and increase the outlet return temperature obviously.
