Heat Balance Calculation of Supercritical CO2 Cycle Power Plants with AxCYCLE™

The goal of this 4-day, 2 hours per day, online course is to provide engineers with a better understanding of heat balance calculations of supercritical CO2 cycles with the AxCYCLE™ software.  During this interactive course, the participants will have hands-on practical training on creating different types of heat balance models through simulation of simple and advanced cycles. This comprehensive course gives in-depth insight into AxCYCLE™ as a cycle design, analysis and optimization tool.

The course scope includes:

  • Introduction to the AxCYCLE™ software
  • AxCYCLE™ components and how to use them
  • Working fluids selection
  • Cycle assembly
  • Property types
  • An overview of the best practices in AxCYCLE™
  • Process diagrams (T-S & P-H)
  • Off-design performance prediction
  • Cycle optimization
  • sCO2 cycle calculation
  • Heat balance results post-processing

Who should attend:

  • Mechanical engineers and engineering managers looking to get hands-on experience using an integrated software tool for the design of sC02 cycles. 
  • Engineering specialists interested in expanding their knowledge on sCO2 cycles
  • Engineering students interested in being early adopters of the next generation of turbomachinery system optimization tools and learning in-depths about the capabilities of AxCYCLE™
