Emissions Regulatory Compliance

Across more than two decades, TRAX has provided first principles-based, boiler implosion/furnace draft studies to the power industry. Utilities and design engineers consistently choose TRAX’s transient studies to validate their own designs and performance predictions. With TRAX’s capabilities and expertise, analysts can evaluate alternative strategies to mitigate transient events, such as trips, load rejections, runbacks, and failures of critical components.

CSAPR and MATS

In 2012, the U.S. implemented new EPA regulations — known as CSAPR and MATS — requiring many utilities to make significant changes to their existing fossil fleets. TRAX leads the industry in dynamic simulations that predict actual performance of new, clean air equipment before it is added.

Performance Prediction

Our experienced team employs high-fidelity modeling and simulation to predict the effects of gas or biomass fuel conversions. We also can demonstrate “real world” dynamic effects of adding solar pre-heater arrays — or virtually any other equipment or arrangement — in order to optimize future performance. Our analysis capabilities are particularly useful for sizing components such as fans, pumps, bypass valves and relief devices, the operation of which is naturally dynamic.

Innovation

TRAX can model carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technologies for global applications. With pending projects in North America, Europe, and Asia, TRAX leads the modeling and simulation effort to help utilities understand and choose the right technology.
