Advantages of thermal industry cluster and application of particle swarm optimization model

This paper first analyzes that the waste heat before the flue gas of thermal power company enters the desulfurization tower can be heated by the low-pressure economizer, and then the heated condensate can be incorporated into the regenerative system, so as to recover the waste heat and improve the unit efficiency. In this paper, the possible layout scheme of the low pressure economizer in the thermal system is constructed firstly, and then the mathematical model of the equivalent enthalpy drop increment of the unit is established with the water partition coefficient as the independent variable. Particle swarm optimization and coordinate rotation are used to optimize the model, and the results show that particle swarm optimization is more effective in solving the problem. After the low-pressure economizer is added to the unit, the heat consumption of the whole plant of the unit is reduced by 61.131, the unit efficiency is increased by 0.783%, and the coal consumption of the whole plant is reduced by 2.293. Finally, from the perspective of industrial agglomeration, industrial diversification and economic resilience, this paper analyzes the advantages of diversified agglomeration of thermal power companies.
