Abstract

A full-scale process model of an integrated steel mill is developed and tested, with particular focus on energy-problems analysis. The steel-making process is represented by a set of linear relations. Analytical results indicate that the estimated relations are reliable and the model performs fairly well. It is proved that the process model represents a useful means for energy engineers to make rational evaluations on energy-consumption variations associated with various operating conditions. Two simulations, namely, output-level changes and hot-metal-ratio changes, are conducted to illustrate the applicability of the model.
