Power Generation and Fuel Cycle Technologies – a mini-lecture series with power point presentation and excel project finance models

Your energy technology selection expert is beginning a lecture series on power generation and fuel cycle technologies. This will involve a discussion on the principles of the technology, its history, capital and operating costs, benefits and risks.

Objectives

1) To provide the participants a basic understanding of the following commercially available:

– fuel cycle technologies

– power generation technologies, and

– energy storage technologies

2) To know the basic principles, costs, environmental impact, risks and applicability of each of these technologies, and

3) To present the technology roadmap of each of these technologies to guide us in the near term (next 20 years – up to 2020) and in the long term (next 50 years – up to 2050)

The Past

o Introduction – what-is-electricity

o How is Electricity Generated – generation-of-electricity

o History of Power Generation – history-of-power-generation

o The Complete Electric Power System (base load, intermediate & peaking loads)

The Present

– Costs

– Environmental Impact

– Associated Risks

– Applicability

COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE POWER GENERATION TECHNOLOGIES:

=========

The project finance models of the power generation technology selection expert are based on one model template; hence, the results are unique for the technology’s capital and operating costs, fuel properties and costs, energy conversion efficiency or heat rate, and energy resource availability and reliability.

The financial models are denominated in Philippine Pesos (PhP 47.00 = USD). You can easily convert to your own local currency by changing the base and forward fixed exchange rate (e.g. XXX 100.00 = USD, USD 1.00 = USD) and do a global replacement of all PhP with XXX currency.

How to Lower Power Plant Emissions – some suggestions

November 18th, 2010 1 Comment   Posted in energy & climate change

How to Lower Power Plant Emissions – some suggestions

Here are my simple suggestions on how to lower power plant emissions and address global warming and climate change issues.

—————-

Hi Jeff,

I am not an environmental scientist, but this I can say.

As long as your liquid fuel has lower than 1% Sulfur by weight, you will not exceed SO2 concentration (in volume % or parts per million by volume or as mg/Nm3 or milligram per normal cubic meter) required by the EPA (usually given in ppm and mg/Nm3 for both old and new power plants).

Having sufficient excess air (3-15% or average of 9%) will help eliminate unburnt fuel emission such as CO (carbon monoxide) and THC (total hydro carbon) as well as unburnt carbon (C) particles.

You also need to lower impurities such as ash to reduce total suspended solids (TSP) emissions (ash and unburnt carbon fuel).

To lower NOx emissions, the firing of oil must be done in stages so that the flame is not too hot that it will dissociate nitrogen (N2) in the air into oxides of nitrogen (NOx) that contributes to acid rain together with oxides of sulfur (SOx).

But this days, you have to address global warming and climate change issues by lowering your carbon (C) or as carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.  This means keeping the fuel to electricity conversion efficiency (thermal efficiency) as high as possible, which is typically around 33-36% for oil thermal power plants based on the steam Rankin cycle.  To lower the carbon footprint, you need to move away from the simple steam Rankin cycle to combined cycles (CCGT) to raise efficiency to over 54-59%, almost double, thus reducing the carbon footprint by almost half.

Hope I was of help,

Marcial

—————–

For the readers who would want to design a power plant that addresses global warming and climate change issues, energy efficiency considerations,  cost of power plant and resulting electricity tariff, please email me your concerns as I may provide you a good feasibility study that addresses all the above issues.

Cheers,

Marcial, your energy technology expert (for conventional, nuclear and renewable energy power generation).
