The two-volume report describes a steady state modeling system that simulates the performance of coal preparation plants. The system was developed originally under the technical leadership of the U.S. Bureau of Mines and the sponsorship of the EPA. The modified form described in this report, written in Fortran, was developed by Battelle for the EPA. The original modifications made the program usable in evaluating an advanced coal cleaning facility being constructed at Homer City, PA. Subsequent changes allowed the model to be used for a wider range of performance and cost evaluations. Initial changes to the original program increased the number of process operations which could be simulated, and simplified program operation. Later modifications permitted the calculation of plant water flows and the estimation of plant costs. Volume I contains user documentation, and Volume II provides process documentation. Volume I describes the manner in which coal flows are represented, the mathematical approach of the various unit operations, the cost evaluation approach, preparation of the input, and interpretation of the output (the last two in terms of an example).
