Shows the problems affecting conversion of existing power plants to dual-fuel gas-steam combined-cycle technologies coupled in parallel systems
Contains a high proportion of figures to text, to aid the reader's understanding of the subject matter
Gives an analysis of the optimum selection of the structure of heat exchangers in a 370 MW power block, and optimum selection of gas turbines and structure of heat recovery steam generators
Conversion of Coal-Fired Power Plant to Cogeneration and Combined-Cycle presents the methodology, calculation procedures and tools used to support enterprise planning for adapting power stations to cogeneration and combined-cycle forms.
The authors analyze the optimum selection of the structure of heat exchangers in a 370 MW power block, the structure of heat recovery steam generators and gas turbines. Conversion of Coal-Fired Power Plant to Cogeneration and Combined-Cycle also addresses the problems of converting existing power plants to dual-fuel gas-steam combined-cycle technologies coupled with parallel systems.
Conversion of Coal-Fired Power Plant to Cogeneration and Combined-Cycle is an informative monograph written for researchers, postgraduate students and policy makers in power engineering.
