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 2011 edition of the book and pages of the portal:
