Thermoflow is the leading developer of thermal engineering software for the power and cogeneration industries. Since 1987, Thermoflow’s software product line has grown to become the most popular, well-proven, and comprehensive system available today.
Thermoflow is a stable, profitable, entirely independent company which has never received funding from any source other than sales to customers who find significant value in our products.
Since the mid-1990’s, Thermoflow has described family of products as “Application Specific”. We now call them “Dedicated Expert Systems”: “Dedicated” because each program is uniquely focused on a specific plant category. “Expert Systems” aptly describes the enormous knowledge base that has been built into each program since the mid-1990’s, and the incorporation of many procedures and applications to facilitate design, optimization, and simulation of specialized plant features, such as desalination, gasification, and carbon capture; as well as complex operational aspects, such as daily chilled water storage cycles, and annual operating cycles.
This family includes seven specialized programs:
GT PRO®, GT MASTER®, and PDETM are dedicated to gas turbine-based power and cogeneration plants. GT PRO is a design creation program, which generates cycle heat balance as well as physical design of major equipment and Balance of Plant. GT MASTER builds upon GT PRO to predict plant performance as a function of its physical equipment, control set-points, loads, and ambient conditions. PDE is a compact expert program, with a simplified interface and built-in logic to select and create the overall scheme for gas turbine power and cogeneration plants based on the user’s electricity and heat demands, site parameters, and constraints.
STEAM PRO® & STEAM MASTER® are dedicated to conventional steam power and cogeneration plants. STEAM PRO is a design creation program, which generates cycle heat balance as well as physical design of major equipment and BOP. STEAM MASTER builds upon STEAM PRO to predict plant performance as a function of its physical equipment, control set-points, loads, and ambient conditions.
RE-MASTERTM is dedicated to repowering existing conventional steam plants by incorporating gas turbines. It creates the design for new equipment needed to convert an existing conventional steam power plant to combined cycle, and then proceeds to simulate performance of the repowered plant at off-design conditions.
NOVO PRO® is dedicated to modeling and optimizing renewable energy systems. It allows the user to define various combinations of renewable energy sources, storage systems, and backup thermal power; then estimates their capital cost, simulates their annual operating cycle, and overall economics.
