Modelado de un sistema de evaporación de múltiple efecto para la producción de panela (Azúcar no centrifugado)

A method for optimizing processing times and resources in the production of panela, non-centrifuged sugar, with sugar cane juice as the single ingredient. The methodology consisted of modeling a multiple effect evaporation system using experimental data from a real system of three effects that allowed controling the concentration of sugar and the liquid level in each effect. As results, a model system of multiple effect evaporation through a transfer function of third order and a proportional-derivative control were obtained. Finally, it is shown that controling the sugar concentration and the level of liquid in each effect allow to obtain a system of multiple effect evaporation that is more efficient in terms of processing time and optimization of resources
