Mathematical modeling and optimization of large thermal power installations

  • At present a software package, i. e. a system of computer-aided program generation, has been developed at Melentiev's Energy Systems Institute. It generates a mathematical model of a thermal power installation from simpler models of its elements and technological links among them. The generated mathematical model in turn can form part of the model of a larger installation. Thus, it becomes possible to construct mathematical models of thermal power plants and energy systems. The package is also intended for optimization of parameters of these models by the specially developed algorithm of non-linear optimization. The operating conditions of cogeneration plants were optimized by the constructed software package that is based on the computer construction of programs. It allows distribution of thermal and electric loads among the operating facilities of the plant depending on different optimality criteria. Besides, the package identifies the coefficients of mathematical models of the basic facilities of the plant by the results of measuring the parameters of its functioning. The efficiency of the software package was tested on some cogeneration plants in Irkutsk region.
