CCSI Releases Updated Toolset on February 29, 2016

The Carbon Capture Simulation Initiative (CCSI) project released a minor update of the CCSI Toolset on February 29, 2016. The tools are available for download from for those entities with an active license. The product bundles that were updated include:

  1. CCSI Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Models, which includes validation and uncertainty quantification (UQ) hierarchies for device scale models for sorbent and solvent contactors
  2. Framework for Optimization, Quantification of Uncertainty, and Surrogates (FOQUS), which serves as the primary computational platform enabling advanced Process Systems Engineering (PSE) capabilities to be integrated with commercial process simulation software
  3. Automated Learning of Algebraic Models using Optimization (ALAMO) Tool, which generates algebraic surrogate models of more complex systems to support large scale optimization
  4. CCSI Superstructure Formulation, which uses surrogate models from ALAMO to optimize the configuration of carbon capture systems
  5. CCSI Oxy-Combustion Models, which consists of a detailed, validated boiler model and a suite of equation-based models to enable optimization of complete oxycombustion power generation systems
  6. CCSI Advanced Process Control (APC) Framework, which enables more rapid and effective control of integrated capture systems
