CARNOT is a physical thermodynamic system and physical properties package. It can be used as pre-processor or through CAPE-OPEN interfaces. CARNOT is based on IFP Energies Nouvelles developed / tested / optimized models and is dedicated to Upstream and Downstream.

CARNOT has been validated with Aspen HYSYS, Aspen Plus, COFE, PRO/II and Simulis Thermodynamics.

A Thermodynamic Wizard has been developed and presented at the 4th CAPE-OPEN European Conference in Heidelberg, Germany. It enables the thermodynamic expert to create a 1.0 CAPE-OPEN compliant Property Package using CARNOT, the IFP Energies Nouvelles thermodynamic package.
