For the purpose of testing new plants which are to be developed, we use mathematical models on which we test the future plant in expected and accidental operating conditions. These models can also be adapted for the purpose of evaluating offers on tenders where the expected longterm business result becomes one of main parametres in making decision on which supplier will win the tender.

 

Biomass cogeneration power plant model with steam turbine

 

Our biomass cogeneration power plant model with steam turbine represents a standard biomass cogeneration power plant with one or two steam boilers (boiler and steam parametres can be adjusted, different types of fuel can be mixed), one condensation steam turbine with controlled extruction (which can also represent the turbine without extraction) and condenser.

 

Thermal energy is produced on up to three energy levels (high, medium and low pressure steam) and electricity can be both sold or bought from electricity system operator, while the plant can also, if there is a need, operate directly for the needs of customer, separated from the electricity network. The model calculates technical parametres of the power plant for satisfying market needs (HP steam, MP steam, LP steam and electricity) and predicts expected income, costs and profit.

Operating conditions can be optimized in order to maximize energy efficiency or to maximize the profit of the plant.

We are proud on the fact that this mathematical model was also used by The European Commission for the purpose of calculating operating conditions of the typical biomass cogeneration power plant in steam Rankine Cycle.

 

ORC biomass cogeneration power plant model

 

Our ORC biomass cogeneration power plant model represents an organic Rankine cycle biomass cogeneration power plant with one oil heat generator, heat exchangers for boiling organic fluid and one turbine.

 

Thermal energy is produced on one energy level, electricity can be both sold or bought from electricity system operator and the plant can also operate directly for the needs of customer, separated from the electricity network. The model calculates technical parametres of the power plant for satisfying market needs (heat and electricity) and predicts expected income, costs and profit.

Operating conditions can be optimized in order to maximize energy efficiency or to maximize the profit of the plant.

 

 

Biogas cogeneration power plant model

 

Our biogas cogeneration power plant model represents a standard biogas cogeneration power plant with fermentor, biogas storage, one or two gas engines and heat exchangers.

 

Thermal energy is produced for the purpose of the power plant and main customer but it can also be sold to other customers and electricity can be both sold or bought from electricity system operator and the plant can also operate directly for the needs of customer, separated from the electricity network. The model calculates technical parametres of the power plant for satisfying market needs (heat and electricity), technical parametres of the biomass inlet and waste outlet (type and amount) and predicts expected income, costs and profit.

Operating conditions can be optimized in order to maximize energy efficiency or to maximize the profit of the plant.

 

Small and medium sized hydro power plant model

 

Our Small and medium sized hydro power plant model enables the appropriate choice of hydro turbine and electrical generator for defined initial conditions of hight of the water and flow rate.

The model calculates the power of the power plant, the electrical energy available for sales to electrical grid and other inlet and outlet technical parametres of the powerplant and predicts the expected income, costs and profit of the powet plant.

Operating conditions can be optimized in order to achieve maximum energy efficiency or maximum profit of the power plant.

 

New pump station configuration model

 

For the need of full reconstruction of the existing pump station by the exchange of all pumps, the model has been built. It enabled the comparation of operation costs of pump station for several variants of pump station conficurations, which meant the implementation of pumps from various suppliers. All variants have been optimized for minimum operating costs under the same conditions and by the method of comparative analysis the optimal variant was chosen.

 

The pump station was built according to results of calculation with the use of the model and which in reality has gained annual savings in operating costs at the level of investment costs of buying one pump.

 

Tailor made solutions

 

There is also a possibility to make tailor made solutions for process and energy plants, like per exampe, a new industrial cogeneration power plant which will satisfy the needs of the future oil refinery.For the purpose of this study two models were made, the technology model of the whole refinery and the energy model of the industrial cogeneration power plant.

 

The input to the simulation technology model were technical parametres of each technology plant and company's longterm business plan. The output of the technology model were expected capacities of each of technology plant which will satisfy marketing needs in the most profitable manner, capacities of pipeline connections and calculation of energy needs of each technology plant and the whole refinery.

 

 

 

 

Energy needs were the input to the optimisation energy model which was used to identify the most suitable configuration of the industrial cogeneration energy plant for the future refinery.
