Abstract

Systematic design and optimization set the standard in today's petrochemical industries, but their impact is limited when considering most processes in metallurgical industries. The present study presents an MINLP model developed for design and optimization of the electrode heating system of a new multistage high-temperature carbothermic reactor. The focus here is the optimization of electrode placement and imposed voltage profile; the model and conclusions can effectively assist ongoing multiscale process modeling.
