|Multi Stage Flash (MSF) desalination plants are a sustainable source of fresh water in arid regions. Modelling plays an important role in simulation, optimisation and control of MSF processes. In this work an MSF process model is developed, using gPROMS modelling tool. Accurate estimation of Temperature Elevation (TE) due to salinity is important in developing reliable process model. Here, instead of using empirical correlations from literature, a Neural Network based correlation is used to determine the TE. This correlation is embedded in the gPROMS based process model. We obtained a good agreement between the results reported by Rosso et. al. (1996) and those predicted by our model. Effects of seawater temperature (Tseawater) and steam temperature (Tsteam) on the performance of the MSF process are also studied and reported.
