Improving Level Control in Combined-Cycle and Coal-Fired Power Plants
Levels of intermittent, renewable sources of energy for the electrical grids around the globe continue to grow. Power plants designed for more consistent, base load operation are under greater stress. In this recorded Power magazine webcast, Optimizing Level Control...
Increasing Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Efficiency and Reliability
The electrical power generation mix continues to shift to increasing natural gas usage due to growing supplies from shale gas production. In a Power article, How to Increase Power Plant Asset Reliability Using Modern Digital Technology, Emerson's Juan Panama describes...
Automating Combined-Cycle Power Generation Startups
In combined cycle power plants: …the heat of the gas turbine's exhaust is used to generate steam by passing it through a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) with a live steam temperature between 420 and 580 °C. The condenser of the Rankine cycle is usually cooled by...
#POWERGEN 2017 Preview: HRSGs, Steam Attemperation and Tube Leaks
Author: Douglas Morris We all know that today's plants must cycle more; that's just the expected mode of operation. Keeping plants online with the ability to cycle, particularly cost-competitive combined cycle units, is a focus for most utilities and avoiding heat...
New Power Plant Technology-Is it Commercially Viable?
Author: Douglas Morris This past week, researchers at MIT were published in MIT News about a new approach to monetizing coal for power plants by combining coal gasification with fuel cell technology. By dovetailing these two systems, the research states that...
Improving HRSG Availability through Better Desuperheating
Thermal fatigue in heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) tubes can lead to lost electrical production. Emerson's Douglas Morris, a member of the Power and Mining industry teams, recaps a presentation he attended by Emerson's Mark Nord. Tube leaks in HRSGs are a problem...
Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) at Duke Edwardsport
Gasification technologies can reduce the emissions from coal used for electrical power generation. Emerson's Alan Novak, Director of the Mining and Power industry teams, provides an update on some projects coming online. Duke Energy recently announced commercial...
