Abstract Abstract This work shows from energy balances and process resiliency analysis, the relationship between dryer controllability and energy performance. It is shown that using the process gain matrix, the dryer temperature drop and hence, energy efficiency can be reliably calculated. Conditions necessary for simultaneous energy efficiency and controllability improvement are established. By pre-conditioning the drying air using a desiccant adsorption system, such conditions are shown to be achievable for the same input choice ...
