Technical Publications

Below are the titles and authors of some of the most useful technical papers for PEPSE and PMAX that have been prepared for the Performance Software Users' Group Meetings from 1983 through 2009. The Users' Group Meeting provides a forum for our clients to tell others how they have used PEPSE, PMAX, PdP, StressWave, and R*TIME to solve problems and save money at their power plants.

Papers from symposiums 1983 to 2007 are divided into the categories listed below. The Symosium started an 18 month meeting cycle after 2007. For that reason there was no 2008 Symposium. These papers are in PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing.
