Abstract

See full text

A superstructure for thermal desalination is optimized by controlling various parameters, wherein the variable parameters include a feed routing for flow of a liquid feed; brine routings for flow of concentrated brine from the liquid feed; vapor routings for vapor generated from the liquid feed; a series of multi-effect distillation effects, each of the effects coupled with at least one routing selected from the feed routing and the brine routings and with one of the vapor routings; and a series of multi-stage flash stages coupled with at least one routing selected from the feed routing and the brine routings and with one of the vapor routings. The superstructure may or may not contain a thermal vapor compressor.
