Fuel Demand Model is a thermodynamic model-based system for combined water and power plant which predicts the oil/gas demand based on the existing load and environmental conditions. It combines the complete thermodynamic model of the power and desalination plant.
The Fuel demand model is developed based on the thermodynamic characteristics of the plant equipment and its properties. Based on the existing demand in the desalination plant, the FDM predicts the appropriate amount of steam and fuel required to be utilized.
Predicts the Fuel demand based on the different electrical load conditions according to contractual specifications.
It interfaces with the DCS and Plant Settlement System for the data exchange
