As electrical power producers and cogeneration facilities must handle the load swings produced on the supply and demand side. Optimizing steam temperature control is one key way to improve the reliability of on boilers and heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) caused by load swings. I caught up with Emerson’s Jeffery Williams who shared the details […]

Emerson’s Jeff Williams presented, Holistic Approach to Steam Temperature Control, at the 2018 Ovation Users’ Group Conference. Jeff opened describing the trend of plants being started and operated more frequently than in the past due to intermittent sources of renewable energy sources on the grid. A key challenge to this mode of operation is to […]

Author: Douglas Morris The new plants that are coming online today are already designed for fast start and flexible operations. With the changing generation mix, being able to move a unit is essential as fleets dispatch more renewables. But what about older plants that were designed to operate as baseload generation? Sometimes units must be […]

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 water from a lake, river, sea or cooling […]
