Technologically Agnostic Water Plants
The water plant object in PLEXOS is technologically agnostic to enable users to model any technologies such as desalination, water treatment plants etc. By-products can also be modeled with ease in the water plant.
Water plants can be connected to the electric network and/or heat node to process an electric load and/or heat load as they process water. Such flexibility of connecting the power and heat node enables the water plant to model various kinds of desalination plants such as multi-stage flash distillation (MSF), multiple-effect distillation (MED), reverse osmosis (RO) and more.
