The UnitedCycle program was developed by professors of Polytechnic University as the tool allowing at a certain skill and understanding of physical processes considerably to simplify calculation of thermal schemes of power plants — thermal calculation.
Calculation of the required mode is different from the nominal (factory one). Thus the model is based on factory parameters and recalculates them for the demanded mode through the standard equations in the heating engineer.
In the modern world the release of new details for power with equal competition can not take place without performing mechanical, and thermal aero hydrodynamic model . Almost all turbine manufacturers as well as ancillary equipment are able to predict the behavior of the product in advance in certain predetermined conditions, whether the increase of pressure, temperature, humidity degree, etc. However, using the thermal characteristics of the individual circuit elements which mutually affect each other, it’s impossible to predict the behavior of the thermal power plant with a high degree of accuracy.
In new construction, after performance of a series of calculations in United Cycle is possible:
When using the software product at already existing stations it is possible:
All technical calculations, both at new construction, and at operation of the existing objects of power allow us to define fuel consumption, prime cost of energy and as result a payback period of the proposed solutions and actions that in the present circumstances when the share of the developed energy doesn’t grow, the growth of rates is limited and the destiny of PDM is unstable, will allow one companies to make informed decisions and to increase profits, while others will carry permanent losses and undergo hostile takeovers.
