Syntha 2000 helps electric utilities and independent power producers operate more efficiently by simulating the precise physical and performance conditions of existing or proposed plants
Syntha 2000 helps electric utilities and independent power producers operate more efficiently by simulating the precise physical and performance conditions of existing or proposed plants.
- better designed plants
- reduced fuel consumption
- increased capacity
- optimized maintenance
- improved availability
Syntha 2000 analyzes thermal performance of gas and steam electric power plants, gas turbines, heat recovery steam generators and combined cycle systems. It evaluates fossil-fueled plants, both turbine and boiler, as well as nuclear plant turbine and balance-of-plant cycles. The software also models coal gasifiers and pressurized fluidized bed combustors. Syntha 2000 carries engineers from design to acceptance to operation and through the entire life of a generating unit.
Syntha 2000 software is used for:
- plant design
- equipment and system testing
- unit modification
- operational analyses
- evaluating maintenance decisions
Syntha 2000 has the industry's most powerful and reliable foundation, incorporating more industry experience and allowing more user flexibility than simpler programs.
Syntha 2000 gives you data you can rely on. All models are solved within the confines of the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics and the program's convergence criteria. (If thermodynamic violations occur or the specified convergence criteria cannot be met, Syntha 2000 uses the closest valid data and identifies which streams and components cause the limits and by how much.)
Syntha software has been important in the design, improvement and evaluation of power systems in the United States and around the world. More than 350 plants - fossil, nuclear, combined cycle/cogeneration, gas turbine and steam production - have been studied, optimized or analyzed. Vendors (boiler and turbine), consultants, architect-engineers and operators use Syntha programs to improve the cost-effectiveness of power production. Models are used for designing new power cycles or for evaluating existing plants.
Syntha clients have frequently reported payback periods as short as three weeks when using Syntha 2000. Even small increases in efficiency result in enormous fuel savings. One U.S. utility attributes fuel savings of more than $3M per year directly to their application of Syntha.
