About this book

This book explains the modelling and simulation of thermal power plants, and introduces readers to the equations needed to model a wide range of industrial energy processes. Also featuring a wealth of illustrative, real-world examples, it covers all types of power plants, including nuclear, fossil-fuel, solar and biomass. The book is based on the authors’ expertise and experience in the theory of power plant modelling and simulation, developed over many years of service with EDF. In more than forty examples, they demonstrate the component elements involved in a broad range of energy production systems, with detailed test cases for each chemical, thermodynamic and thermo-hydraulic model. Each of the test cases includes the following information: •   component description and parameterization data; •   modelling hypotheses and simulation results; •   fundamental equations and correlations, with their validity domains; •   model validation, and in some cases, experimental validation; and •   single-phase flow and two-phase flow modelling equations, which cover all water and steam phases. A practical volume that is intended for a broad readership, from students and researchers, to professional engineers, this book offers the ideal handbook for the modelling and simulation of thermal power plants. It is also a valuable aid in understanding the physical and chemical phenomena that govern the operation of power plants and energy processes.  

About the authors

Dr. Baligh El Hefni has 34 years of research, industry and teaching experience. He specialised in physical modelling of various types of power plants. In 2002, he joined EDF Research & Development division (R&D). He contributed to the development of power plants modeling activities, within the EDF and its subsidiaries, thanks to the use of ThermoSysPro library (developed by the authors). This has allowed him to collaborate with major industrial players, research and academics in the framework of many European projects (DLR, Dassault-Systèmes, Dassault-Aviation, Siemens, IFP, OpenModelica …), in which EDF’s contribution was recognized. The main objectives of these projects are: to improve the modeling languages, the tools, the methods (stat estimation), and to extend the modeling domains (multi-mode systems, property modeling). The experience in the power plant modeling has allowed him to develop solid competencies and a specific know-how that has allowed him to expand our activity towards the development of solar power plants, and collaborate with CENER (Spain), Chinese Academy of Sciences (China), CEA (France) and other partners. He is in charge of training courses of the modelling of power plants and energy systems, for EDF staff and partners. He was also in charge of the same training at Ecole Centrale de Paris “Engineering Training School”.
