dc.description.abstractThe operation of a cogeneration power plant is complicated. The Energy Optimization Program (EOP, software made by SEGA, Inc.) was designed to simulate and optimize the operation of TAMU power plant. All major plant components were represented by appropriate models and then structured to establish a system model. A better understanding of the complicated interaction among all energy components within the plant was achieved through systematic simulation using EOP. Overall performance of the plant operation under different conditions was investigated. Further more, (online) operational optimization is made possible by load reassignment according to EOP's calculation. Other researches on plant operation, such as the impact of utility rates on operational decision making, were also carried out with the help of this program. This paper shows how a well-designed commercial software is exploited in engineering research.en_US
