Product Description
The Power Plant Flexible Model (PPFM) is an Excel-based tool that simulates coal combustion-based power plant electrical output, emissions, materials usage, and costs for a fully-configurable mix of boiler and steam plant types, feedstocks, and emissions control equipment. The technical documentation and user's guide for the model are included in the download package. PPFM is not engineered to be a consumer-level product and requires knowledge of coal combustion power plants and processes to yield reasonable results.
