The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts - Engineering and Architecture, with the support of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) and the “Energie-Agentur der Wirtschaft” (EnAW), has developed the user-friendly software for application of the classical pinch analysis method in the process industries. The newest version of PinCH 3.0 allows for the systematic integration of thermal heat storage systems. This makes the software a unique practical tool for both large companies and SMEs.
