EXPLISITE distance learning modules
The distance learning EXPLISITE modules (Explorations Pédagogiques en Ligne avec SImulation des Technologies Energétiques) are centered around exploring virtual tours of the main examples of energy systems (refrigerator, gas turbine and steam cycle), with links to theoretical, technological, methodological explanations.
They are used in combination with the Thermoptim software: cycles investigated can be opened in the simulator and diagram editor, which helps explain the physical phenomena simply calculations being performed by the computer. The student then concentrates on the architecture of cycles and their thermodynamic setting.
Links to different thermodynamic packages, some of which are freely downloadable, are provided in the portal pages that deal with this issue.
Excel macro for post-processing project files
An Excel macro for after-processing Thermoptim project files has been designed to facilitate the exploitation of sets of simulated project files.
Utility package for digitizing curves
To facilitate the digitization of curves, we created a small utility package that allows you to display on the screen the image of a scanned chart, and then easily record points of the curves (up to 2000 ).
