Ener-t Simulation Model

The Ener-t software simulation tool is a performance and financial model of parabolic trough power plants that is designed to facilitate decision making for finding the most cost effective power plant configuration for a given location.

The model predicts performance and cost of energy estimates for grid-connected power projects based on Capex, Opex and system design parameters that are specified as inputs to the model.

The model is also an engineering tool: it facilitates rapid engineering process development and system optimization. It was built from the ground up using unique firsthand experience in solar power plant design Integrates the experience and knowledge gained during the years of the SEGS projects for a very realistic simulation, and updated recently based on latest project outcomes Uses the most recent empirical data and industry equations for the main components in order to accurately simulate the actual power plant process
