Thermoptim simulates both simply and highly accurately many energy systems:

  • gas turbines and combined cycles
  • aerospace engines
  • Diesel and spark-ignition engines
  • Stirling engines
  • steam power plants
  • co-generation units
  • refrigeration machines and heat pumps
  • air-conditioning plants
  • innovative energy converters
  • new and renewable energy

As such, its distribution in industry and higher education institutes has developed a lot since 2001.

Its practical implementation, including education, is presented in detail with numerous examples in the book Energy Systems: A New Approach to Engineering Thermodynamics and in the Thermoptim-UNIT portal to which we recommend you refer.

The following mind maps have been designed to help you find the relevant sections of the book and pages of the portal:
