Matlab for steam turbine simulation

Matlab for steam turbine simulation

Matlab for steam turbine simulation

I'm just getting started using Matlab, and I've seen quite a bit of information for performing simulations on Gas Turbines and Wind Turbines.  But I'm interested in seeing if I can model steam turbine operation using Matlab.  But I'm not interested in modeling the generator or control system.  I want to model the turbine itself, steam flow, conditions, kw output, etc.  

Other than a few simple commands, I'm very new to Matlab.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

RE: Matlab for steam turbine simulation

Why the need to do this simulation in Matlab if it's a totally unfamiliar environment to you?  You'd be better off using an environment you are comfortable in and familiar with.

RE: Matlab for steam turbine simulation

I don't have any other tools to use for this simulation.  Part of the objective is to learn Matlab and see what I can do with it.

Then I suggest you learn Matlab and see what you can do with it.
