Technical Publications

Below are the titles and authors of some of the most useful technical papers 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, 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.

  1. Turbine Cycle Performance Analysis
  2. Performance Testing
  3. Operations and Economics
  4. Fossil Boilers and Nuclear Steam Generators
  5. Combined Cycles, Cogeneration, and Gas Turbine Cycles
  6. Steam Turbines
  7. Feedwater Heaters
  8. Condensers and Cooling Towers
  9. Feed Pumps and Feed Pump Turbines
  10. Fuel Studies
  11. Computer Applications
  12. Performance Monitoring

Also available are:
