Thermoptim is a software package that allows you to easily learn thermodynamics: parallel or even prior to the presentation of theoretical foundations, you can perform exercises on very practical applications of discipline to real machines, such as the study of a refrigerator or a power plant ...

This video will show you how easily you can model a gas turbine with Thermoptim.

The book Energy Systems: A New Approach to Engineering Thermodynamics explains how using this software allows students to overcome limits of the classical teaching methods in engineering thermodynamics.

You will see for yourself that learning using of this tool is very easy, and it provides extremely realistic results without your being handicapped by the difficulties of calculations, which are generally the rule in our discipline.

With its library of thermodynamic functions, Thermoptim allows one to graphically model simple and complex energy technologies without writing a single equation, and obtain highly accurate results that can be visually presented in various forms. It allows you to overcome in particular the very restrictive assumption of perfect gases, introducing real fluids.



E-learning modules for self-training to energy powered systems are available in the Thermoptim-UNIT portal, where you will find numerous digital resources. They provide you with explanations on how to model thermodynamic cycles with Thermoptim.
