Pinch Analysis on Regional Energy Allocation under Constraints of Carbon Emissions
Department of Business, Hohai University, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China
In view of high cost and constraints of carbon emissions in the development and utilization of new energy, the authors suggest to establish the energy allocation model of the fuels with minimal consumption and zero carbon emissions under constraints of total carbon emissions and their respective carbon emissions, in order to achieve a balanced energy supply and demand under carbon constraints. This paper proposes that Pinch analysis method shall be applied to the energy allocation under constraints of carbon emissions. The objective function and constraints of the model are synthesized and put in the same coordinate system to form the synthetic curve of energy demand and supply. The results of solution model of Pinch analysis method and the results of solution model of linear programming through analyzing the numerical examples to verify the feasibility and practicality of Pinch analysis method are compared.
Key words: carbon constraints / Pinch analysis / energy allocation
