TOP-Energy is a software that simulates and analyses various types of industrial energy systems. It allows visualization, creation, simulation and comparison of different variants of energy systems via a modular structure to yield maximum flexibility. The software is also capable of performing calculations based on both financial and environmental parameters. Screen Shots

Keywords

Simulation and optimization of energy systems, energy efficiency, time series analysis, variant comparison, Sankey diagrams, material and energy flow analysis, process optimization

Validation/Testing

Tested in consultancy projects. Go to http://www.top-energy.de/en/application.html to read more.

Expertise Required

Engineers/ Consultants with knowledge of how complex energy systems or processes work.

Users

Approximately 300 users mostly in Germany.

Audience

Process Engineers, Energy Consultants, Contractors and Operators, Researchers

Input

Component based modeling and simulation of energy systems using graphical user-friendly interface. Data for components are required. The software is capable of working with both constant and time-dependent data.

Output

Tabular and graphical representation of calculated results based on financial and ecological parameters. The software can generate Sankey Diagrams and automatic reports for further understanding of the user.

Computer Platform

Windows PC

Programming Language

Mainly C++

Strengths

TOP-Energy can be used for a variety of other industrial processing apart from energy systems. The component or variant library that the modules are equipped with is being constantly expanded to cater to the individual needs of the users. You can easily integrate your own components or adapt the existing ones without much effort. Customized version of the software as well as consultation support is available if required.

Weaknesses

Detailed simulation of production processes (esp. dynamic simulation is not included)
