Audience

    • Engineers from process, engineering, R&D departments of industrial plants in various industries (oil, gas, petrochemical, chemical, energy, paper, food, etc.).

Level

  • Advanced
  • This course provides comprehensive and applied knowledge of pinch analysis and covers how to improve energy efficiency in existing plants or new projects.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • define the constraints and stakes of energy efficiency,
  • describe the main methods of energy analysis,
  • carry out an analysis of current energy needs in an industrial plant and make improvement proposals,
  • propose ways and means for reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
Course Content

ENERGY EFFICIENCY & CONTEXT

0.5 day

  • Definition of Key Performance Indicators: energy intensity and efficiency, units and use.
  • Motivations and constraints: energy dependence and regulation.
  • Energy management system: PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act), ISO 50001 standard.
  • Different approaches for energy efficiency: operation improvement, operating conditions optimization and other significant improvement solutions (pinch analysis, alternative technology, process design, best available techniques).

PINCH ANALYSIS & MAIN RULES

0.5 day

  • Composite curves (hot and cold streams): building, description and interest.
  • Pinch point: characteristics and help for solutions design. Key parameters: ΔTmin, integration ratio.
  • Main rules: “cross pinch”, “plus or minus principle”…
  • Illustration through examples (heat exchanger network, selection of a compressor).
  • Advantage of an expert software dedicated to energy analyses.

METHODOLOGY FOR ENERGY ANALYSIS: MAIN STEPS & CASE STUDIES

2 days

  • Several case studies proposed and based on a methodology for energy analysis, adapted for industrial plants or new projects.
  • At this step, trainees will be able to:
  • Characterize the energy needs and potential of a process.
  • Design the most consuming pieces of equipment or steps.
  • Define savings targets.
  • Propose potential solutions and options.
  • Simplify it in order to select most profitable and operational options.
