The multi-objective territorial particle swarm optimization (MOTPSO) technique is proposed in this work for the optimal design of steam surface condensers. The main objective of this work is to maximize the condensation rate in a condenser while the pressure loss is minimized. Various design parameters, such as the tube outside diameter, thickness, and pitch, are considered to find the optimal ones for shell and tube heat exchangers considered in this study. The two-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis is performed to solve the fluid flow and heat transfer in the condenser to assess the performance of different designs.
