SOAPP Team Ships SOAPP®-CT WorkStation Version 5.1

Powerful Tool Integrates Technical and Financial Decision Making

Chicago, June 30, 2000: SOAPP-CT WorkStation has been updated to Version 5.1, with Service Release 1, the first update to Version 5.0 since its initial release in October 1999. The SOAPP-CT WorkStation provides integrated technology evaluation/selection, conceptual design, and financial analysis of combustion turbine based power and cogeneration plants. The SOAPP-CT WorkStation automates the plant conceptual design process, generating heat/material balances, equipment selection and sizing, drawings and 3D models, cost estimates, construction schedules, and financial analysis.

Service Release 1 offers numerous updates and enhancements, including the following:

  • Addition of the GE PG6581(B) and the GE PG7241(FB) combustion turbines.
  • Improved validation and performance run heat balance calculations.
  • Improved Operations and Maintenance (O&M) calculations.
  • Improved AFUDC calculation in the Capital Outlay Schedule report.
  • Improved validation logic to better identify valid and invalid inputs based on the specific design.
  • Improved heat balance error trapping routines, adding internal tests that confirm a valid heat exchange in the HP evaporator section.
  • Improved heat balance models for the pipe valve component (DA pressure-regulating valve).
  • Improved sizing of water treatment equipment. Please note that changes to the water treatment sizing have affected the water treatment capital cost.
  • Improved display of project schedule reports. Schedule report window is now resizable.
  • Added Project IRR to the Scenario Manager

SOAPP’s investment in the frequent development of service releases is an ongoing effort to address user needs and help them to stay current with market conditions.
