In this paper we describe our progress toward creating a process workbench for performing virtual simulations of DOE Vision 21 energyplex systems. The workbench provides a framework for incorporating a full complement of models, ranging from simple heat/mass balance reactor models that run in minutes to detailed models that can require several hours to execute. Provided herein is an overview of a process workbench for a conventional PC power plant developed during the past year and our current efforts at developing a workbench for a gasifier based energyplex configuration.
