Introduction to ClaRa Bibliothek

Introduction to ClaRa Library

ClaRa models the transient, thermal behaviour of power plants and power systems. The library covers the modular description of all components of the water-steam cycle and the gas path of coal dust fired boilers and heat recovery steam generators.

Significant changes in world’s energy markets come with new challenges for existing and new power plants. Conventional and disposable units have to be more flexible to balance fluctuations from the renewables. The ClaRa library was already applied successfully in first commercial industry-related projects and offers the opportunity to gain problem-specific solutions using tailored system models of different levels of detail.

Participants

The training course is for engineers and scientists who deal with development and simulation of energy systems. Please note that the number of participants is limited to 6 attendees in order to enable an intensive support of the group.

Course instructor

The course is held in English (on demand) by Dr. Friedrich Gottelt and his colleague Dr. Lasse Nielsen (TLK-Thermo GmbH). Dr. Gottelt models energy systems in several industrial and research projects for many years. Additionally, he and Dr. Nielsen are the main developers of ClaRa and were involved in many projects using the library.

Prerequisites for attending

For a successful participation you should have a fundamental knowledge of using the simulation software Dymola as well as common functional principles of the modelling language Modelica.

Training course objectives

The objective of the 3-day course is to introduce the participants to the Modelica library ClaRa.
