Performance of externally fired combined cycle (EFCC)
The externally fired combined cycle (EFCC) which utilises coal as the primary fuel through a gas turbine cycle is a clean coal technology. Natural gas is used as the supplementary fuel, but the ultimate goal of the EFCC concept is a coal only option. In this study, the performance of the EFCC plant is evaluated based on the first and the second laws of thermodynamics, considering various levels ...
Permit Compliance Monitoring for the Power Generation Industry
The Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990 authorized EPA to develop regulations requiring facilities to monitor the adequacy of emission control equipment and plant operations. This paper discusses the various methods available for coal-fired power plants and gas turbine installations to demonstrate a reasonable assurance of facility compliance with emission limitations, and ensure that control ...
An environmentally conscious robust optimisation approach for planning power generating systems
This study proposes a robust optimisation capacity expansion planning model that yields a less sensitive solution due to variations in model parameters such as demand and fuel prices. By adjusting the penalty parameters, the model can accommodate the decision maker's risk aversion and yield a solution based upon it. The proposed model is then applied to Ontario Power Generation, the largest power ...
Pressurised pulverised coal combustion ? a coal-based combined-cycle state of the cooperative project: cleaned flue gas matches specifications for use with gas turbines
A high efficiency of 60% in a combined-cycle power plant technology with fuels like gas or light oil is estimated to be achievable. On the other hand existing conventional coal-fired power plants based on steam generation have an efficiency of about 40?45%. A huge potential of improvement in efficiency could be achieved by the implementation of a simple and cost-effective technology: PPCC, a ...
Understanding fuel switching under the EU ETS
Since the creation of the European Union Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS), European power producers have monitored carbon emissions resulting from the composition of their production. Fuel switching is the main short–term abatement measure under the EU ETS. It consists in substituting combined cycle gas turbines (CCGTs) for hard–coal plants in off–peak power generation. Thereby coal plants run ...
