In this model, refinery waste gases are utilized as a main source of fuel in order to power on thermal desalination processes (MSF/MED). The plant consists of the following:

1-Waste gases source,

2-Steam generator,

3-Brine heater,


5-Flash tank,


7-Accumulative tank,


9-ORC for power generation.
In this sub-Model:

1.User should specify the ambient temperature in degree Celsius.

2.Also plant productivity should be specified (Md, m3/day).

3.Inlet turbine temperature, oC (Dry saturated).

4.Condensed temperature in the MED 1st effect, oC.

5.Inlet steam temperature for the ORC-Toluene, oC.

6.Condensed steam temperature for the ORC-Toluene, oC
