Abstract
The liquefaction of natural gas (NG) in a mixed refrigerant (MR) system is an energy-demanding process. Much energy is wasted because of its irreversibilities and its nonoptimal execution. The most important factors affecting this process's performance are the refrigerant's composition and flow rate, the suction and evaporation pressures, and the extent of refrigerant vaporization. They should be adjusted to optimize the overall operation. The adjustment of one of these variables will affect the other because of their highly nonlinear interactions. This work reports the optimization of a single MR (SMR) process of NG liquefaction. The SMR process was modeled in the UniSim Design commercial process plant simulator, and the model was optimized for compression energy with nonlinear programming (NLP) while satisfying constraints. The base case for optimization was selected by mesh searching, and case study demonstrates that NLP can reduce energy use and improve the process's efficiency.
