GateCycle Software

GateCycle plant performance monitoring software predicts design and off-design performance of combined cycle plants, fossil boiler plants, nuclear power plants, cogeneration systems, combined heat-and-power plants, advanced gas turbine cycles and many other energy systems. You can use GateCycle software for quick assessments, detailed engineering, design, retrofitting, re-powering and acceptance testing. Its component-by-component approach and advanced macro capabilities let you model virtually any type of system.

GateCycle Service Pack 4

GateCycle 6.0 Service Pack 4 Now Available

As a GateCycle user, you already know how powerful this software is for heat balance calculations in any type of thermal power plant – whether for design or off-design conditions. But did you know that Service Pack 4 makes your GateCycle software even more powerful? It’s easy to download and install and it’s available to you at no charge as a registered GateCycle 6.0 user.


SP4 includes significant fixes and improvements including:


  • Starting with version 6.0, users are able to open and use multiple models and cases at the same time. With that enhancement, GateCycle allows linking to models and cases in any directory thereby requiring path information for Datalinks. The implementation of these Internal and External Datalinks has been greatly improved in SP4.
  • Improvements to several icons, numerous bug fixes, and correction to long-standing problems, including ones from v5.61. In all we dispositioned more than 600 items in our bug tracking system. A summary of the various fixes and improvements is in the README file for SP4.

    All GateCycle 6.0 users are urged to upgrade to this service pack. Please ensure you read and understand the README file concerning upgrades of your pre-SP4 models and use the appropriate link below

    For users with a TSA:
    The 6.0 SP4 comprehensive installer is available for users with a current and valid Technical Service Agreement (TSA). The comprehensive installer will install 6.0 SP4 without the user having already installed 6.0 SP2 or SP3. Each user should have his/her individual login credentials. If you have lost your login info, please contact Bently Nevada Technical Support. The SP4 comprehensive installer is about 187MB and includes the companion SP4 Model Importer as above. Due to the size of the download, please plan accordingly

    For users without a TSA and with 6.0 SP2 or SP2 already installed:
    This updater is about 108MB and requires the user to already have 6.0 SP2 or SP3 installed. It will install the companion SP4 Model Importer if GateCycle 5.4, 5.51, 5.52 or 5.61 is installed on the computer. The SP4 Model Importer now supports importation of version 5.4, 5.51, 5.52 or 5.61 models.

    For users that want to install the Model Importer separately from SP4
    A standalone SP4 importer installer is also available. This is only needed if you decided to install the Model Importer as a separate exercise from the Service Pack installation.
