- The current paper had illustrated a bunch of iso-watt diagrams of a PRO process according to the variations of membrane parameters such as A(water permeability), B(salt permeability), and S(structural parameter). Here, Iso-watt diagrams literally stand for the figures displaying the plots which track the points having the same watt(W) values.
- Furthermore, the authors also showed the effects of operational parameters, such as temperature or concentration, on the iso-watt diagrams by controlling the simulation conditions.
- The current study can be regarded as an encyclopedic reference for PRO operations, which tend to be changed along the variations of membrane parameters.
