Power Plant Simulators

After many years of concentrating on the "process" side of things, we have been working hard at filling out our library of Power Plant Programs. While our entry into the Power Plant Simulator business in new, we have b een involved with providing Simulators to refineries and chemical plants for 30 years. Some of the benefits from these industries may be of interest to you:

  • Simulators that run on ordinary PCs operating under MS Windows
  • Portable - Simulator SW fits onto a single CD
  • Large class instruction
  • Standard Programs that start off a simple as a Centrifugal Pump and build from there
  • Easy integration with Learning Management Systems Intranet Delivery
  • Generic and DCS specific Emulators are available


  • Here are some of our Existing Programs that relate to Power Plant Operations:
