A dynamic simulator code has been developed for fluid transformations involving compression, expansion, heat generation and heat transfer. Controller design procedures are embedded in the computer code. This allows easy transfer of information between simulation, used to sample the process response to various perturbations, and optimisation of controller design and tuning. Equations are developed for equipment models, based on one-dimensional flow approximation. The architecture of a simulation package based on the object paradigm is described. The program has been validated on test cases. In particular, compression systems have been evaluated for different strategies. Simulation of an existing gas turbine and control of a cogeneration plant are under way.
