The product is intended to be a simulation tool that can be easily customised according to the user’s modelling needs in terms of accuracy and runtime constraints.
TGSim Plus™ provides ready-to-use libraries of basic components such as compressor, combustor, expander, manifolds, valves, and restrictions.
The software includes a user-friendly graphic interface, which allows to load input data, run simulations, and visualise the time histories of all the state variables and main operational and thermodynamic properties obtained as output.
TGSim Plus™ can be used either standalone or integrated within a multi-processor Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) platform to be interfaced with the real gas turbine control system (GTCS).
A typical GT plant model developed in TGSim Plus™ includes four main blocks:
- GT Main Model, including the GT machine and the electric motor-generator;
- GTCS, accounting for the real or simulated control system;
- Gaseous-flow Auxiliaries Model (Aux 1);
- Liquid-flow Auxiliaries Model (Aux 2).
