Title: Integrated Environmental Control Model

Abstract

IECM is a powerful multimedia engineering software program for simulating an integrated coal-fired power plant. It provides a capability to model various conventional and advanced processes for controlling air pollutant emissions from coal-fired power plants before, during, or after combustion. The principal purpose of the model is to calculate the performance, emissions, and cost of power plant configurations employing alternative environmental control methods. The model consists of various control technology modules, which may be integrated into a complete utility plant in any desired combination. In contrast to conventional deterministic models, the IECM offers the unique capability to assign probabilistic values to all model input parameters, and to obtain probabilistic outputs in the form of cumulative distribution functions indicating the likelihood of dofferent costs and performance results. A Graphical Use Interface (GUI) facilitates the configuration of the technologies, entry of data, and retrieval of results.

Other Software Info:
Microsoft Access 97 database files .mdb are stored in the intdb and sessdb directories. All user session data inputs, configuration info, and outputs are stored in the sessdb directory. Online help files are included with the IECM, but are not yet context sensitive. They can be accessed from the operating system and program menus.
Related Software:
The previous version of IECM was implemented on a Macintosh computer and requiired separate liscensing of the underlying engineering model. The current IECM continues the development effort to provide improved model capabilities, including new software developments to facilitate model use and new technical capabilities for analysis of environmental control technologies and integrated environmental control systems.
