DESAL EXPERIMENT

DESAL Experiment

Cloud-based Simulation of Desalination Systems Powered by Renewables​

 

THE CHALLENGE ​
Based on the current industrial state of the art, the design process of RE-powered desalination systems takes place in two distinct steps:​
Step 1 includes the design of the reverse osmosis desalination system and ​
Step 2 includes the design of the renewables system based on the desalination unit designed in Step 1

Its absolute implementation SMEs is problematic from a techno-economic point of view, since it requires a large volume of data, both in industrial production and throughout the supply chain.
This approach using two distinct steps leads to non-optimized systems.​

THE EXPERIMENT (PART OF FORTISSIMO II PROJECT)

DESAL aimed at Renewable Energy Sources co-production optimization with a focus on using this development to power sustainable desalination installations (island, lakes and river sites). The major innovation introduced by the experiment is the simultaneous optimization of both the desalination system and the renewable energy system, along with the tuning of the control system. ​

OUR ROLE

We participated in the development of a design and sizing platform based on optimizations through simulations for RE-Desalination systems leading to systems providing lower cost of water and improved efficiency. Our VDP was used for new product development.​

Experiment under Fortissimo II project, through the use of simulation services running on a High Performance Computing (HPC) cloud infrastructure.
