Abstract :

Production of sugar contains a number of unit operations, out of which the most energy consuming one is the evaporation process. The evaporators used in sugar industries have multiple effects connected in series. It is used to raise the concentration of sugar cane juice from a nominal value. While developing the control strategies for such systems, two major objectives to be considered are concentration of sugar cane juice and steam economy. In this paper, the development of a simulation model of an evaporator having four stages is attempted. The model is developed in MATLAB based on the mass and energy balance at different effects. For proper understanding of the evaporator dynamics and validation of simulation model, data are collected from different sugar factories located in the state of Maharashtra, India. For analyzing the evaporation process, the simulation model is subjected to a set of trials for different values of feed temperature and mass flow rates of steam and feed. The model is further optimized using Taguchi technique. The optimized model can be used for analysis and synthesis of intelligent control strategy on which research is in progress.
