  • We’re working on it – with you!

    Together we’ll design your customized plant model

    EBSILON®Professional is a powerful planning and simulation tool. But it becomes second to none once your personal experience and expertise is integrated into the system. Our engineers work together with you to learn exactly what your unique model looks like. Contact us any time – or meet us in person at one of our technology and user events. That’s where plant operators come to exchange ideas, while we listen in and share our expertise. We also use the opportunity to give you a first look at our updates and innovations.

    What’s most important to us is to listen closely to you, get your feedback, and understand your requirements. Sometimes the solution is easy – other times it’s challenging. For example, the idea to calculate a lot of different operating sequence scenarios with only one click. Ultimately, we found it does take a few to get the job done.

    Training in EBSILON®Professional and our add-on modules is also an integral part of what we can offer you. But you decide where to begin. Our engineers offer everything from beginner to advance courses – and they’re standing by to serve you.

     

    This year we are again offering training courses on various topics

    Due to the present Corona situation, all courses will take place online. As a video conferencing tool we will be using StarLeaf.

    On both days the training sessions will start at 8:30 am and end around 1:00 pm (CET). There will be a 30-minute break at around 10:30 am. If the training schedule should not be convenient for you due to your local time, please suggest a different starting time (registration form). We will then try to find a more convenient solution for you. If less than 4 participants register for an event, we reserve the right to make organizational changes.

    To register, please use the appropriate form from the attachment.

    General introduction to power plant modeling with EBSILON®Professional

    Date 2022-03-02/03
    Registration deadline 2022-02-25
    Previous knowledge Power plant technology / Thermodynamics
    Max. participants 10
    Participant fee 550,- € (plus VAT)

    The course is intended for participants without previous knowledge of Ebsilon and provides a step-by-step introduction into creating an Ebsilon model. The Ebsilon component library and the various line types are discussed. Based on an error-free simulation of the design case of a simple Clausius-Rankine cycle, partial load calculations are examined for different load cases and environmental conditions (parameter studies). The gross and net efficiency of the circuit is determined with the help of efficiency meters. The functionality and applications of controllers are introduced. The cycle is supplemented by a furnace and an air/flue gas path. The turbine characteristic curve is determined (component identification) from the specification of generator output and live steam mass flow in various load cases. The Excel interface is used to export and import data. Finally, a detailed model of a steam circuit with reheating and regenerative preheating is created based on a template model. This model is used to display the results in the Ts diagram and QT diagram.

    Modeling of steam turbines in EBSILON®Professional with components 122 and 123

    Based on manufacturer data, the user is introduced step by step into the modeling of multi-stage steam turbines. The correct parameterization of component 122 (steam turbine) and component123 (labyrinth seal) is explained on the basis of the real constructions and the technical-physical processes. The aim of this course is to enable the user to create a model that is as realistic as much as possible for calculating the entire load range in EBSILON®Professional  using the few available data. Particular attention is paid to the parameterization of the comp.122 for the high pressure part and for the low pressure part. The partial load control with partial admission, fixed pressure and sliding pressure control is discussed and implemented. In the case of the low-pressure part, the current model concepts for taking into account the additional losses are dealt with, which result from the partial condensation of the steam during the expansion in the wet steam area and from the kinetic outlet losses. Based on a heat balance diagram a water/steam cycle is created using components 122 and 123, and the turbines are fitted to the results of the heat-balance diagram.

    The course focuses on the modeling of combined cycle gas and steam turbine power plants (CCGT). The user is familiarized step by step with the construction of a combined cycle power plant, whereby the technical background of the individual construction steps is discussed. The aim of this training is to familiarize the user with the technical concepts and special features of a combined cycle power plant and to enable him to use EBSILON®Professional  to evaluate them technically and to develop a good bases for an economic evaluation. The industry standard calculation of the gas turbine using correction curves is discussed. Particular attention is paid to the design of the water-steam cycle, whereby the individual measures to increase performance and efficiency are jointly developed and evaluated. Heat recovery boilers with one, two and three pressure stages are considered, and the various options for component specifications and alternative components for modeling the heat recovery boiler are discussed.

    The course first introduces into using the actual "EbsScript" programming language. For this purpose, the syntax and the function library of EbsScript are discussed and simple EbsScripts are created. These EbsScripts are used to access the objects of a model and to carry out the simulation of the model.

    In addition, the creation of user-defined "macros", which are wrappers around the functionality of existing Ebsilon components, are discussed.

    With the help of "kernel scripting" user-defined components can be programmed, whereby it is necessary to program the complete physics of the component. Programming such kernel scripting is introduced using simple examples.

    The EbsOpen interface, which is also part of the EbsScript license, allows to start the Ebsilon application from another programming environment and to execute a simulation. A simple application will be created in Microsoft Visual Basic (or in Matlab or Python, depending on the preferences of the participants), which starts Ebsilon and executes a simulation. The Excel add-in supplied together with Ebsilon is also based on the EbsOpen interface, and a simple example is created in Excel to exchange data with Ebsilon and simulate a model.
