SOAPP–CT.25 Version 2.1 Released

Plant Design and Costing Software for Distributed Generation Projects

Palo Alto, August 14, 2001: EPRI has announced the release of SOAPP-CT.25 WorkStation Version 2.1. The SOAPP-CT.25 software is used to screen opportunities, evaluate feasibility, optimize design criteria, and prepare proposals for distributed generation projects. It helps users design projects for optimal payback, return, and risk mitigation with accurate modeling of site-specific performance and emissions. SOAPP-CT.25 generates detailed plant cost, emissions, and performance estimates, supporting a wide range of gas turbine models up to 30 MW and using current, manufacturer-supplied data. It allows the user to configure the plant to site-specific conditions and requirements and generates detailed plant performance and emissions estimates, equipment lists, project schedule, bill of materials and capital cost estimates, O&M cost estimates, and financial analyses. Additional details and sample output of the software are available on the web site at http://www.soapp.com/soapp/dg.

New Features in Version 2.1 includes an enhancement to the WorkStation’s heat balance engine. For two-pressure cogeneration designs, a feature has been added that assists the user in optimizing the conceptual design. This new feature will determine an appropriate Low Pressure (LP) Pinch Point Temperature that will result in minimizing LP Steam production. By producing only enough LP steam to satisfy the deaerator steam requirement, the user can maximize High Pressure (HP) steam production.

EPRI’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.

All SOAPP software products are designed for Microsoft Windows™. SOAPP-CT.25 operates under Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT, and Windows 2000.
