  • At unit level energy efficiency optimization, total unit may be divided into systems, subsystems and equipments. Their energy consumption / generation data is collected and evaluated. Taking the actual constraints imposed, an optimization model is developed with the objective of minimizing energy consumption and at the same time without loss of production. In modern optimization models, Sulfurous emissions are also incorporated in the model to optimize the energy resource mix that will meet all the requisit
