General Power Plants (App_Lib)

The General Power Plant Library was designed for modeling a wide range of thermal power systems. The design of this library is based on many years of experience, gained with the power process modeling package IPSE.

The library contains models for both design and off-design analysis. With the General Power Plant Library the user can design and analyze any power plant, including:

  • Conventional Power Plants
  • Cogeneration Plants
  • Combined Cycle Plants

The library supports both design of new plants as well as analysis and optimization of existing plants.

The component models included with the General Power Plant Library represent an optimum balance between

  • ease of use
  • model accuracy
  • amount of required input data
  • flexibility

The General Power Plant Library is frequently used together with the Gas Turbine Library.
