Title: Quality Guidelines for Energy System Studies: Process Modeling Design Parameters

Abstract

The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) conducts systems analysis studies that require a large number of inputs, from ambient conditions to parameters for Aspen Plus® (Aspen) process blocks. The sheer number of assumptions required makes it impractical to document all of them in each issued report. The purpose of this section of the Quality Guidelines for Energy System Studies (QGESS) is to document the assumptions most commonly used in system analysis studies and the basis for those assumptions. In order to develop the systems analysis models presented in various NETL reports, significant vendor data has been obtained, and this data enhances the model outputs. Much of the vendor data obtained is considered proprietary and not suitable for public release, or attribution to a specific vendor. As such, several sub-systems common in NETL reports and their processparameter data are not reported in this document to protect proprietary vendor information.
