The optimum\ndesign of the proposed water-lithium bromide AHP is then achieved\nby minimizing the total annual cost. A comprehensive optimization is\ncarried out by relaxation of all stream pressure drops as well as heat\nexchanger areas involving in AHP structure. It is shown that by\napplying genetic algorithm optimizer, the total annual cost of the\nproposed AHP is decreased by 18% compared to one resulted from\nsimulation.","references":"[1] L.
