  • Scalable Power to Match Industrial Park Growth in Southeast Asia Case Study

    Powerphase recently installed two Turbophase modules at a Malaysian high-tech park, one of several projects it has underway in Asia. Ensuring reliable and efficient natural gas capacity is a challenge in the fast-growing Southeast Asian grid. Southeast Asia’s hot climate is a challenge for efficient CCGT operation because hotter ambient temperatures reduce air density and GT combustion ...

  • Building a resilient system

    Africa is the second largest continent in the world, with the majority of its people surviving every day with little or no access to electricity – 50% of the 1.2bn people lacking access to electricity globally are in Africa, earning less than $2/d and living in remote locations where conventional grid extension makes little economic sense. Tackling energy poverty is the key to ensuring ...

  • Influence of reference temperature on exergy and exergoeconomic performance of a natural gas fired thermal power plant

    The influence of reference temperature on exergy and exergoeconomic performance parameters of a thermal plant was investigated. The plant was simulated using HYSYS (2003) process simulator software and the exergy and exergoeconomic analyses were done using Microsoft EXCEL spreadsheet. As reference temperature increased from 15°C to 35°C, exergy efficiency decreased from 11.7% to 11.5% and ...

  • Exergetic and exergo–economic analysis of a turboprop engine: a case study for CT7–9C

    The turboprop engine has played an important role in short haul commuter and military transport aircraft where high speed is not critical. It may provide the aviation sector with one of the most significant means of achieving reduced operating costs through reductions in fuel consumption. This paper deals with exergo–economic analysis of a modern turboprop engine (CT7–9C) with a free power ...

  • Why Choose a Gas Power Washer?

    While buying a power washing system, many people wonder if they should invest in a gas pressure washer or not. All pressure washing systems have their own unique set of benefits, and gas power washing machines are no exception. For indoor cleaning tasks, electrical pressure washing systems are generally used. This is because they do not release any exhaust fumes, and are relatively less noisy. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Energy trading at the cross-roads

    Power and gas exchanges in Europe multiply, but, experts say, we are nowhere near a mature, integrated European energy market as yet. Trading regulations need to be improved and harmonised and interconnections expanded. European Energy Review assesses the state of energy trading in Europe and interviews the ceo’s of NordPool and ...

  • Dutch exchange looks to gas to retain independence

    To arm itself against the ongoing consolidation in the European energy trading market, the Anglo-Dutch gas and power exchange APX has moved ahead of its rivals into gas trading. ‘The sense of urgency to create an integrated market is bigger in gas than in power’, says ceo Bert den ...

  • 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 ...

  • Damping power system oscillations by genetically optimised PSS and TCSC controller

    This paper presents a procedure for modelling and simultaneous tuning of parameters of Thyristor Controlled Series Compensator (TCSC) controller and Power System Stabiliser (PSS) in a power system to damp power system oscillations. First, a simple transfer function model of TCSC controller is developed and the parameters of TCSC and PSS are simultaneously optimised. Genetic Algorithm (GA) is ...

  • 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 ...

  • The globalisation of Russian energy companies: a way out of the financial crisis?

    This paper analyses the emergence of global energy companies in Russia. Within the framework of the history and rules of privatisation, the unfavourable investment climate, and the distortions of the internal Russian market, a dual structure of the Russian energy sector developed. Economic survival at present is strongly linked with internationalisation of business activities for one group of ...
