Artigo:

In this work a thermodynamic analysis of the autothermal reforming (ATR) of methane was performed. Equilibrium calculations employing entropy maximization were performed in a wide range of oxygen to methane mole ratio (O/M), steam to methane ratio (S/M), inlet temperature (IT), and system pressure (P). The main calculated parameters were hydrogen yield, carbon monoxide formation, methane conversion, coke formation, and equilibrium temperature. Further, the optimum operating oxygen to methane feed ratio that maximizes hydrogen production, at P=1 bar, has been calculated. The nonlinear programming problem applied to the simultaneous chemical and phase equilibrium calculation was implemented in GAMS
