What is IPSEpro?

IPSEpro is a software system for calculating heat balances and simulating processes. It comprises a set of software modules for creating process models for a wide range of applications and for utilizing these models throughout the lifecycle of process plants.

IPSEpro's modules are used to:

  • Calculate heat balances and predict design and off-design performance.
  • Verify and validate measurements during acceptance tests.
  • Monitor and optimize plant performance on-line.
  • Plan modifications and upgrades of existing plants.

Ready-to-use solutions are available for a wide range of applications:

  • Thermal Power
  • Geothermal Energy
  • Concentrating Solar Power
  • Desalination
  • Refrigeration
  • Flue Gas Cleaning
  • Biomass Gasification

Unlike with other programs, IPSEpro users are not restricted to predefined models and model libraries. Ready-to-use model libraries are available, but can be adapted to specific needs as well. New model libraries can be created easily created by users, which makes IPSEpro the perfect tool for creating proprietary solutions. 

The core of IPSEpro embeds a highly flexible modeling system for calculating heat balances and for simulating processes. IPSEpro goes far beyond the capabilities of other available heat balance programs. IPSEpro's Model Development Kit introduces a unique level of flexibility by allowing you to create new component models or create completely new model libraries.

You can use IPSEpro for quick process assessments, detailed engineering, design, retrofitting, repowering, and acceptance testing. Its component-level flexibility and component-by-component approach allows you to model virtually any type of system.

IPSEpro covers as the entire lifecycle of a process plant from conceptual design to plant operation. There are great advantages of using with IPSEpro a single software solution rather than isolated products throughout the lifecycle of a plant: 

  • One single model can be used throughout the lifecycle.
  • The use of the same calculation engine and mathematical methods ensures consistent results.
  • One common interface for all purposes facilitates the usage.

Overall Advantages in using IPSEpro:

  • Short implementation time
  • Users need not to be computing specialists
  • A uniform environment for a wide range of problems
  • New components are easily integrated in an existing system
  • The user can concentrate on the physical background of his/her problem
  • State-of-the-art numerical methods
  • Comfortable graphical user interface without extra costs
  • Low maintenance costs
