Abstract

Heat exchangers are energy conservation equipment used to transfer heat between hot and cold fluid. In this chapter, thermal modeling of different types of heat exchangers like shell and tube heat exchanger, plate-fin heat exchanger, fin and tube heat exchanger, plate heat exchanger, and rotary regenerator is presented. The objective function for each of the heat exchanger is derived from the thermal model. Optimization of a derived objective is performed by implementing 11 different metaheuristic algorithms for each heat exchanger, and comparative results are tabulated and discussed.
