    A system is presented that assists in designing and analysing thermodynamic cycles. Performance characteristics are displayed, including the properties at a number of states, the performance of components and cycle efficiencies. Effects of separate input parameters on cycle performance are also displayed. Libraries of examples and thermodynamic logic (intelligent knowledge) are used to detect inconsistencies. Decision windows show what has caused the inconsistency along with a list of assumptions that caused the inconsistency. Sensitivity analysis allows for optimization of the power and energy system design by considering one input variable at a time over a specified range of values.
