SOAPP Team Ships SOAPP-CT Version 5.2

Powerful Tool Integrates Technical and Financial Decision Making

Palo Alto, August 21, 2001: SOAPP-CT has been updated to Version 5.2, with Service Release 2, the second update to Version 5.0 since its initial release in October 1999. SOAPP-CT provides integrated technology evaluation/selection, conceptual design, and financial analysis of combustion turbine based power and cogeneration plants. SOAPP-CT 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 2 offers several updates and enhancements, including the following:

  • The LM6000PC SPRINT gas turbines (both 50 & 60 Hz) were added bringing the total to ninety (90) gas turbines modeled in SOAPP-CT. The LM6000PC SPRINT (SPray INTercooling) is capable of firing both Natural Gas (NG) and No.2 Distillate Fuel Oil (FO) with water/steam injection available for NG and water injection available for FO firing (for NOx Control). The LM6000PC SPRINT can achieve a Gross Output = 43,745 kW and Gross Heat Rate (LHV) = 8,342 Btu/kWh (8,801 kJ/kWh) when firing NG (no injection) at ISO conditions (59 F, 60% RH, sea level) with inlet/exhaust loss = 4 in. H2O.

    Note: The CT performance and NOx emissions are estimates. Please verify this information with the OEM prior to proceeding with procurement of this equipment.
  • Capital cost updates for the major equipment including combustion turbines and heat recovery steam generators. Cost information has been updated to reflect current market prices.

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.
