COILS Program
Program predicts performance of bare/finned tube coils such as superheater,evaporator,economizer,air heater,given their geometry such as tube sizes,fin geometry,tube spacings,length and gas flow,inlet temperature,gas analysis,fluid flow and inlet temperature. Obtain duty,exit temperatures of both fluids, gas/fluid pressure drops,tube wall,fin tip temperatures and more information on new or operating coils and compare actual vs operating data!

HRSGS-Heat Recovery Steam Generator Simulation Program
Program analyzes design/off-design performance of single,multiple pressure HRSGS in unfired,fired modes. Configure your own HRSG with up to 13 modules or 6 pressure levels.Obtain energy balances,steam flows,fuel inputs with fan/GT exhaust operation. Optimize temperature profiles,evaluate field data of existing HRSGS,perform "what if" studies, evaluate effect of gas turbine performance on HRSGs. Ideal for consultants,plant engineers,gas turbine suppliers,cogen/combined cycle plant developers..easy to use..Obtain all performance information on HRSGS fast without having to contact HRSG suppliers..Understand HRSG performance; write better specifications for HRSGS.
Up to 10 modules or pressure levels* check potential steaming problems in economizers* simulate fan or GT exhaust operation* compare different gas turbines to see which is better for your HRSG * Study effect of pressure,feed water temperature variations on your new or existing HRSGs* Field data can be evaluated and compared with design guarantees even if the gas exhaust flows,temperatures,gas analysis or steam parameters are different* a useful tool for checking HRSG performance gurantees.Easy to use and fast[all versions of windows. British & Metric units]
Download the HRSGDEMO program.A three pressure level HRSG as shown below is evaluated for design and off-design fired performance. Demo requires about 1.5 MB hard disk space after extraction.create a directory called HR in your C: drive.Copy the file VGDEMOD.exe to C:\HR and on prompt key VGDEMOD and all files will extract. Run from windows using the command C:\HR\HRSGDEMO:Download the FREE HRSGS Demo program!
