Abstract:This paper describes a model which simulates the dynamics of a multi-effect distillation system in different operating conditions. It have been designed to improve the operation of the process and develop a control strategy which optimise the distillate production. The physical models are based on mass, energy and salt conservation equations and experimental correlations for heat transfer. Conservation laws are applied in the different components such as the heater, the effects and preheaters. The results of the mathematical model of the whole process show promising results.
