There are now a range of advanced simulation tools available which facilitate the modelling and analysis of complex systems. At the ABB ALSTOM POWER Technology Centre, the Control Group have been utilising the versatility of two such products to model and simulate complex industrial power plant. The potential benefits include improvements in the plant design, control system design and in process operation. This paper will describe two industrial case studies where the specialised power plant simulation tool ACSL/MMS has been used in conjunction with MATLAB/SIMULINK to model, analyse and undertake control design studies on power plant.
