Clean Energy Storage Systems

Using Thermal Power Library, Modelon power industry experts can support the design process from ideation, architecture selection, and component sizing to controls development and system verification and validation.

Microgrid Technology

Modelon Impact allows for what-if scenarios analyses to be conducted for varying infrastructures and operating conditions – at both microgrid and building levels

Hydrogen Power

Replacing fossil fuels with hydrogen can be a significant step in reducing CO2 emissions and mitigating climate change. Using Modelon Impact, engineers can easily create a full plant model to address technical challenges and evaluate efficient operation.

Cogeneration Power Plant

Cogeneration or Combined Heat and Power (CHP), plant can be modeled in detail to capture their behavior at various loads. Physical phenomena such as delays, heat losses and energy storage in accumulators as well as in the network are included in the model. 

Hydroelectric Power Plants

Modelon has experience helping customers implement modeling and simulation throughout all phases of a hydro plant’s lifecycle, including planning and design, commissioning, production, and maintenance and update scheduling.

Carbon Capture and Storage Technology

Modelon has extensive knowledge and experience related to carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. The company has delivered solutions to large energy suppliers for performance assessment of both absorption-based separation processes and CO2 transport pipelines.

Thermal Power Plants

Modelon Impact enables customers to explore new concepts during early design phases of a wide range of power-plant types, including coal and gas-fired, in all sizes and configurations.

Nuclear Energy – Small Modular Reactors

Nuclear reactor modeling poses two major challenges: The complexity of technically sophisticated assemblies that must meet rigorous safety demands, and the need for large-scale collaboration among designers, engineers and shareholders, many of which do not have specific modeling skills.

Fuel Cells

Modelon has excelled in major projects that involve modeling, simulating, analyzing and controlling fuel-cell design, especially for PEMFC (Polymer Exchange Membrane) and SOFC (Solid Oxide) systems.
