Abstract The dual mixed refrigerant (DMR) cycle, which pre-cools natural gas with the mixed refrigerants and then liquefies the natural gas with another set of mixed refrigerants, is well known for having the highest efficiency among the liquefaction cycles. Its possible application to LNG FPSO is also extensively investigated. In this study, the optimal operating conditions, such as the equipment's flow rate, pressure, temperature, and refrigerant composition per flow of the DMR cycle, were determined in consideration of power efficiency. To determine the optimal operating conditions, a mathematical model was formulated based on the mathematical model of the single mixed refrigerant (SMR) cycle with additional consideration of tees, phase separators, and common headers. In the mathematical model, the 227 operating conditions were defined as unknowns and 196 equality constraints related to the thermodynamics for the equipment were formulated. Further, the 15 given variables related to the natural gas, compressor efficiency and seawater coolers were used. This mathematical model can be regarded as the optimization problem, in which the number of unknowns is larger than the total number of equality constraints and given variables. To obtain the optimal operating conditions, the minimization of the required power for the compressors at the cycle was defined as an objective function. Moreover, set as design variables were the 16 operating conditions, such as flow rate, pressure, temperature and composition of the main and precooling refrigerant, natural gas temperature after precooling, and flow rate ratio for the tee. In addition, the temperature conditions for the equipment’s operation were used as inequality constraints. The optimal operating conditions were then obtained by using a hybrid optimization method that consists of the genetic algorithm (GA) and sequential quadratic programming (SQP). The calculation results show that the required power at the obtained conditions was decreased by 34.5% compared with that of the relevant patent obtained in 2001, and 1.2% compared with the corresponding value from the past relevant study carried out in 2008.
