“By 2025, the volume of gas turbines sales in the world will reach $23.7 billion, and in Russia by this time it is planned to localize their production within the country. To make the process of testing gas turbine installations and power plants simpler and more efficient, various mathematical models are now being used. But so far there has been no developed software that would model together an energy gas turbine installation and an electrical system of any configuration. Our product, EnergyDesc, allows you to test power plant control systems for different configurations of power supply systems due to a complex mathematic model”, says Grigory Kilin, the chief developer and Senior lecturer of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electromechanics of Perm Polytech .
According to scientists, the new tool will help reduce the time and financial costs of modeling power supply. Unlike in its analogues, all elements of the power system are included in unified blocks, so the development is convenient to use. With the help of the software package, the user will be able to conduct the necessary experiments, testing the operation of both individual parts of the object and the entire system. If necessary, the product can be adapted to the needs of the customer by installing new modules.
“Modern mathematical models of technological objects allow describing the main modes of their operation with high accuracy. They also take into account how different elements of the system affect each other. But to see the full range of operating modes and interactions, a comprehensive and universal model is needed. It is the basis of our software product. With its help, you can create schemes of any complexity and configuration that take into account different modes and processes of operation”, explains the developer.
According to scientists, the development can be implemented at enterprises in the field of mechanical engineering. Several enterprises have already become interested in the prototype of the software package.
