Modelling and optimal control of plate evaporators

Thompson, C. and Whiten, B. (1995) Modelling and optimal control of plate evaporators. [Study Group Report]



Evaporators are an important stage in the extraction of sugar from sugar cane. A model of a simple evaporator is developed and then extended to multiple stage evaporation. An approximate solution and an iterative solution to the equations are developed. From the properties of these models a control strategy is developed.
