Advanced virtual reality future power plant dynamic simulations


Supervisors: Professor Mohamed Pourkashanian, Professor Lin Ma and Dr Kevin Hughes and Professor Ingham.

This project aims to combine computational fluid dynamics, chemical process modelling and virtual system simulation techniques to develop a dynamic modelling tool for power plant performance simulations. The developed tool can be employed to investigate the integration of new technologies to the power plant, to optimise the control of the plant performance under high renewable penetration conditions and to improve power plant staff training and education.
