    Course Overview

    NPSS: A Practical Introduction


    The objective of this course is to give attendees a working knowledge of NPSS software and allow them to create and/or modify system models using this tool. The course material will discuss the object oriented architecture and how it is used in NPSS to develop flexible yet robust models. A detailed presentation of NPSS execution options, syntax, and interfaces with external codes will be addressed. Overviews of NPSS operation (i.e. Solver, etc.) will also be included.

    The attendees will be interactively involved with the material by performing exercises on their personal hardware which demonstrates and further clarifies the material being discussed in the lecture. All attendees will be provided with a reduced capability version of NPSS for their use during the course and will be permitted to keep it after the course is completed.

    Key Topics:

    • A Basic overview of NPSS
    • NPSS’s Structure and Capabilities
    • An introduction to NPSS syntax
    • NPSS interfaces to the outside world
    • Examples and Exercises to reinforce major concepts

    Who Should Attend:

    This course is designed for engineers already familiar with building system models. The course will allow them to begin modeling systems in NPSS. Some experience with COTS tools like Matlab, GasTurb, etc. and/or aero industry proprietary tools such as SOAPP, CWS, NEPP, etc. is desirable although it is not a requirement.
