  • Floating nuclear power plants

    Nuclear energy, in comparison with other modes of energy generation such as hydro, thermal and non-conventional sources, has high energy density with little environmental pollution or greenhouse gas emissions. The methodologies to check the problems of nuclear radiation hazards and waste associated with this technology are continuously being developed towards perfection. The nuclear plants are ...

  • Energy and exergy analysis of a gas turbine power plant in Algeria

    An exergy analysis of a twin ABB GT13E2 Gas Turbines (GTs) power plant (2 ? 146.2 MW) is presented in this paper. This plant is running since 2004 at F'Krina in the northeastern part of Algeria. The analysis was performed by the flow-sheet programme, 'Cycle-Tempo'. At off-design load (83%), the plant and its apparatus conserve nearly the same design load performances. However, the performance of ...

  • Investment decisions for baseload power plants

    Executive Summary This six-volume report is designed to provide a detailed understanding of the key drivers and processes that affect private entities in the United States (U.S.) as they consider investing in baseload generation capacity. The report was prepared by ICF International at the request of the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). Volume I of this report identifies the ...

  • Captive power plant efficiency for Africa

    Power distribution networks across Africa are notoriously unreliable. Frequent power interruptions can be enormously costly for many of the continent’s factories. Not only do power outages disrupt production batches, they can also damage or reduce the life of important plant components such as kilns. This too has a knock-on effect on wider the country’s gross domestic product – ...

  • Exergoeconomic optimisation of steam power plant

    The second law of thermodynamics combined with economics forms a powerful tool for systematic analysis and assessment of energy systems. This paper presents an exergoeconomic optimisation of 50 MW steam turbine power plant associated with a large fertiliser industrial unit through Thermoeconomic Evaluation and Optimisation (TEO) method, and identifies the losses in various components. As the ...

  • Efficiency and the not-to-be-ignored gas-fired plant

    Carbon dioxide emissions dropped significantly in the US in 2009. The economy played an obvious role; not so obvious was the influence of power generation and its increasing efficiency. CO2 emissions have been trending down for the last decade by about 0.9%.  But the 2009 drop was far more dramatic -- 7% -- the largest decline since the Energy Information Administration ...

  • Exergetic analysis of gas turbine plants

    An exergetic analysis was performed for a 116-MW gas-turbine power plant. Mass and energy conservation laws were applied to each component of the system. Quantitative exergy balance for each component and for the whole system was considered. In this study, the exergy of a material stream is decomposed into thermal, mechanical and chemical exergy and an entropy-production flow. The effect of a ...

  • A real options approach to investing in the first nuclear power plant under cost uncertainty: comparison with natural gas power plant for the Tunisian case

    This paper uses a real options approach to present a method for evaluating the first Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) investment in Tunisia in 2020. The evaluating model integrates the value of real options: option to wait in the standard discount cash flow analysis. According to the IAEA (2007), starting the first stage of a nuclear power programme makes it possible to construct the first NPP in second ...

  • Overview of mercury control in coal-fired power plants

    During combustion, the mercury (Hg) in coal is volatilized and converted to elemental mercury (Hg0) vapor in the high temperature regions of coal-fired boilers. As the flue gas is cooled, a series of complex reactions begin to convert Hg0 to ionic mercury (Hg2+) compounds and/or Hg compounds (Hgp) that are in a solid-phase at flue gas cleaning temperatures or Hg that is adsorbed onto the surface ...

  • Experience curves for power plant emission control technologies

    This paper examines past experience in controlling emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) from coal-fired electric power plants. In particular, we focus on US and worldwide experience with two major environmental control technologies: flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) systems for SO2 control and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) ...

  • Safety assessment for the deficient operation data in the gas-cooled nuclear power plants for hydrogen production

    The probabilistic safety assessment (PSA) is investigated in the case of the operational data shortage which is characteristic of the passive system in gas-cooled nuclear power plants (NPPs). Therefore, it is difficult to make a quantification of the PSA. One of the solutions is to compare the passive system and the active system. Using this comparison, one can find the priority of the passive ...
