  • Fast solution technique for unit commitment by particle swarm optimisation and genetic algorithm

    In solving the Unit Commitment (UC) problem, two types of decision variables need to be determined: the start/shut down status and the output of power generation. Efficiently calculating the optimal commitment (on/off) and Economic Dispatch (ED) generations of the units at a sequence of times in the scheduling period is known as a challenge issue. In this paper, the proposed integrated PSO/GA ...

  • Optimisation of micro gas turbine by exergy, economic and environmental (3E) analysis

    This research proposes a new method for optimisation of a power generation system based on exergy fuel cost and external social cost of air pollution. A thermodynamic model is provided to estimate the outlet mass flow rates of CO2, CO, NO and NO2 for a gas turbine based on maximising the first and second law efficiencies and minimising the objective function. Results show that inclusion of the ...

  • Efficiency of a standard gas-turbine power generation cycle running on different fuels

    This paper presents a study of second-law efficiency in a standard Brayton combined cycle power generation, using several paraffinic fuels ranging from methane to heptane. The main objective of the study was to identify a trend with the number of carbon atoms in the compound. In this way, a qualitative criterion can be built to evaluate the properties of poor-quality gas turbine fuels containing ...

  • Integrated GTL power-generation technology: the optimal solution to natural gas exploitation in Nigeria

    Nigeria has an estimated 187 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of proven gas reserves. Almost 50% of annual associated gas produced is flared or re-injected for enhanced recovery. Currently, the preferred option for exporting stranded gas is liquefied natural gas (LNG). However, the world LNG market is relatively small compared to middle distillates, and strongly driven by long-term and high risk ...

  • Optimum price of electricity in thermal-generating station under deregulation

    The deregulated market is characterised by a number of power producers trying to sell electric power through bilateral agreements or power exchanges. Each utility follows its own pricing strategy and causes more price volatility and makes comparison difficult. This paper presents a general model to determine the optimal Electricity Price (EP) at the generator end point which motivates investment ...
