  • Technical and economic studies on the optimisation of prospective coal-fired power stations

    The paper considers problems of choosing rational parameters of thermal power plants on fossil fuel. A technique for comparison of the energy and economic efficiency of prospective coal-fired power plants is described. The optimisation results of parameters of combined-cycle plants with coal gasification at low and high-temperature levels and steam turbine plants on supercritical steam parameters ...

  • Thermodynamic analysis of an integrated gasification combined cycle power plant: effect of nitrogen supply on system performance

    A comprehensive thermodynamic analysis of a conceptual integrated coal gasification combined cycle power plant is presented. Energy and exergy efficiencies and exergy destructions of each sub–unit are calculated. The effect of nitrogen, which is supplied from the Air Separation Unit (ASU) of the gasification unit to the combustion chamber of the gas turbine (GT) cycle, on system performance is ...

  • Is `clean` coal possible?

    VANCOUVER, April 18, 2007 (GLOBE-Net) - Coal is the world’s most commonly used fuel to produce electrical energy, and will continue as such for some time. Yet it is one of the ’dirtiest’ of all fossil fuels. It is a major source of toxic air pollutants and the leading source of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Many believe ’clean coal’ technologies will improve the energy efficiency of ...

  • Thermochemical reactor design and thermal breakdown in middle-rank coals

    Experiments conducted at bench scale can throw new light on the operation of pilot and plant scale processes. In the coal gasification/combustion area, such experiments have ranged from determinations of coal reactivities for novel entrained-flow gasifiers, to investigating the fate of injectant coal during blast furnace operation. Meanwhile, the accurate mimicking of conditions within pilot and ...

  • Thermodynamic performance simulation of a coal gasification and SOFC based combined cogeneration plant by energy and exergy analyses

    This paper presents a thermodynamic model of a combined cogeneration plant that employs a coal gasifier, a gas cooler and a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) upstream of the gas turbine and a downstream HRSG to generate process steam at low pressure. Simulated performance of the plant with respect to variations in some design and operating parameters has been reported. While energy analysis indicates ...

  • Thermo-economic efficiency of low capacity coal-based power plants

    The method of estimation of thermo-economic factors, allowing the justification of the construction of low capacity coal-based power plants has been developed in the present paper. The C-curve method applied for thermo-economic analysis is used here for determination of the optimal ratio between specific exergetic and cost-performance factors. The results of the analysis show that for coal-based ...
