Optimization of power plants with hydrogen production and CO2 capture

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research will focus on the analysis, simulation and optimization of power plants fed by a fuel with a high H2 content and that include processes for the capture of CO2. Some power plant configurations proposed in the literature will be analyzed according to the HEATSEP method, that consists in decomposing the original problem about the synthesis of an energy system into two sub-problems, the first concerning the synthesis of the configuration, called “basic”, that includes all the plant components and the second concerning the synthesis of the heat exchanger network that performs the internal heat transfer among the thermal flows identified by the cutting of the thermal links among the basic components. The purpose is the analysis and development of innovative power plants configurations with an improved thermal integration aimed to increase the value of the objective function in the process of definition of the topology and design parameters of these configurations.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
