The ThermoCycle library is an open-source library for dynamic modelling of ORC systems developed in the Modelica language. The library aims at providing a robust framework to model thermal systems, including ORC systems.
Thermodynamic properties of organic fluids require complex equations of state available only in external libraries such as FluidProp, Refprop or CoolProp. Thermodynamic properties in the ThermoCycle library are computed using the open-source library CoolProp. The interface between ThermoCycle and CoolProp on the Modelica level is ensured by the CoolProp2Modelica library, which is based on a modified version of the External Media library.
HOW TO HAVE THERMOCYCLE AND COOLPROP2MODELICA WORKING PROPERLY ON YOUR SYSTEM?
The CoolProp2Modelica library is the interface between Modelica and CoolProp.
The library requires the CoolProp Modelica wrapper to be installed on the target system. This wrapper can be downloaded and compiled from the CoolProp website http://www.http://coolprop.sourceforge.net/. Pre-compiled versions using VisualStudio2010 and VisualStudio2008 have also been made available. Once downloaded the CoolPropLib.lib file has to be copied in the “Dymola \ bin\lib\” folder of the Dymola installation, usually in C:\Program Files\ .
The library is composed by 7 top-level package which are listed below:
