This publication offers a systematic framework for built-in strategies to complicated power difficulties. It adopts a holistic, systems-based method of exhibit the possibility of an power platforms engineering method of systematically quantify diverse ideas at numerous degrees of complexity (technology, plant, strength offer chain, mega-system). using modeling, simulation and optimization-based frameworks, in addition to a few real-life purposes, it makes a speciality of complicated power structures together with strength offer chains, built-in biorefineries, power making plans and scheduling ways and concrete power systems.

Featuring contributions from prime researchers within the box, this paintings turns out to be useful for teachers, researchers, practitioners in power platforms engineering, and all those who find themselves thinking about model-based power systems.

Shale Gas Processing Plant A general design for the conventional shale gas processing plant is presented in Fig. 7. As shown below, first the raw shale gas pipelined from wellheads goes through a gas sweetening section, where the acid impurities, such as H2S and CO2, are removed. Considering the mutable characteristic of shale gas composition, three alternative schemes are employed to efficiently neutralize the raw gas as follows: (1) when the gas is only slightly sour, fixed-bed type scavenger process would be a cost-effective approach to H2S removal; (2) chemical absorption-based acid gas removal (AGR) process followed by a scavenger process, works well for raw gas with moderate to high content of CO2 and small content of H2S; and (3) for moderate amounts of H2S, the sulfur must be captured by a sulfur recovery unit when its amount exceeds a limit specified by the environmental regulations (Parks et al.

Finally, certain toxic elements such as boron are removed to meet the specifications of surface discharge or reuse (Veil 2010). The advantages of CWT treatment option are its lower treatment cost compared with onsite treatment option and the potential to reduce freshwater consumption by recycling. However, the economic viability of this option depends on the proximity of CWT facilities to shale sites as well. Onsite Treatment for Reuse The last option is onsite treatment for reuse, where some mobile water treatment units are installed at shale site to treat the wastewater.
