Genre: Business & Economics

The availability of fossil fuels required for power plants is reducing and their costs increasing rapidly. This gives rise to increase in the cost of generation of electricity. But electricity regulators have to control the price of electricity so that consumers are not stressed with high costs. In addition, environmental considerations are forcing power plants to reduce CO2 emissions. Under these circumstances, power plants are constantly under pressure to improve the efficiency of operating plants, and to reduce fuel consumption. In order to progress in this direction, it is important that power plants regularly audit their energy use in terms of the operating plant heat rate and auxiliary power consumption. Energy Audit of Thermal Power, Combined Cycle, and Cogeneration Plants attempts to refresh the fundamentals of the science and engineering of thermal power plants, and establishes its link with the real power plant performance data through case studies, and further developing techno-economics of the energy efficiency improvement measures. This book will rekindle interest in energy audits and analysis of the data for designing and implementation of energy conservation measures on a continuous basis.

Genre: Combined cycle power plants

This thesis deals with modelling and performance enhancements of a gas-turbine combined cycle power plant. A clean and safe energy is the greatest challenges to meet the requirements of green environment. These requirements given way the long time governing authority of steam turbine (ST) in the world power generation, and gas turbine (GT) and its combined cycle (CCGT) will replace it. Therefore, it is necessary to predict the characteristics of the CCGT system and optimize its operating strategy by developing a simulation system. Several configurations of the GT and CCGT plants systems are proposed by thermal analysis. The integrated model and simulation code for exploiting the performance of gas turbine and CCGT power plant are developed utilizing MATLAB code. New strategies for GT and CCGT power plant's operational modelling and optimizations are suggested for power plant operation, to improve overall performance. The effect of various enhancing strategies on the performance of the CCGT power plant (two-shaft, intercooler, regenerative, reheat, and multi-pressure heat recovery steam generator (HRSG)) based on the real GT and CCGT power plants. An extensive thermodynamic analysis of the modifications of the most common configuration's enhancements has been carried out. The performance code for heavy-duty GT and CCGT power plants are validated with the real power plant of Baiji GT and MARAFIQ CCGT plants the results have been satisfactory. The simulating results show that the reheated GT has a higher power (388MW) while the higher thermal efficiency occurs in the regenerative GT (52%) with optimal pressure ratio and turbine inlet temperature. The performance enhancing strategies results show that the higher power output occurs in the intercooler-reheat GT strategy (404MW). Furthermore, the higher thermal efficiency (56.9%) and lower fuel consumption (0.13kg/kWh) occur in the intercooler-regenerative-reheat GT strategy. The analyses of the HRSG configurations show that the maximum power output (1238MW) occurred in the supplementary triple pressure with reheat CCGT while the overall efficiency was about 56.6%. The intercooler-reheat CCGT strategy has higher power output (1637MW) and the higher overall thermal efficiency (59.4%) and lower fuel consumption (0.047kg/kWh) occur with the regenerative-reheat CCGT strategy. The simulation result shows that the proposed GT system improved 19% of thermal efficiency and 22% of power output. In addition, the proposed CCGT system improved 4.6% of thermal efficiency for and 22.5% of power output. The optimization result shows that the optimum power (1280MW) and the overall thermal efficiency (65%) of the supplementary triple pressure with reheat CCGT. Therefore, the optimization procedure is reasonably accurate and efficient. Thus, the operation conditions and ambient temperature are strongly influenced on the overall performance of the GT and CCGT. The optimum efficiency and power are found at higher turbine inlet temperatures. It can be comprehended that the developed models are powerful tools for estimating the overall performance of the CCGT plants. The energy and exergy analysis models for the GT and CCGT plants are highly recommended for predicting them performance based on inlet air cooling system.
