The Process Analysis Tool
It provides the ability to represent the processes in more detail and more deeply than common commercial or manufacturer tools, due to the possibility to incorporate real machine operating behaviour and results from modern 2-D and 3-D simulation software. Of course also individually programmed modules doe the analyses of the customer's power plant can be included.
With AixPAT not only power plant processes can be represented and evaluated in their entity, but it also provides the possibility to simulate and evaluate single thermodynamic process, e.g. gas turbine processes, in detail. A particular advantage of AixPAT is the precise and efficient consideration of thermodynamic Interactions between individual prcoesses within a power plant or a thermodynamic system. Thereby, especially the influence of modification or upgrading concepts on the entire process can be investigated and optimized very efficiently. Moreover, AixPAt provides the possibility to realize and localize retrofit potentials as well as to verify and evaluate manufacturer garantees.
The program is continuously further developed by B&B-AGEMA and has successfully applied within numerous process evaluation projects.
