Coal Thermal and Clean-Coal Project Finance Model Template (Financials Tab) – free demo

This is the latest project finance model template (financials tab or worksheet) that your energy technology selection expert has developed for the geothermal power generation technology using energy stored on the earth’s crust. Familiarize with the template and if interested, get the full unlocked version for your immediate use. I can also provide data input service or customize further the model.

Solid fossil fuel such as coal (lignite, sub-bituminous, bituminous, etc.) are available in large quantities in many places around the world and will provide a cheap source of fuel to generated power in base-load coal-fired power plants using circulating fluidized bed (CFB) and the newer pulverized coal (PC) technologies such as super-critical and ultra-super-critical technologies.

Coal-Fired Power Plant: How to Design and Calculate Plant Footprint, Fuel, Limestone, Hauling Trucks and Storage Areas for Coal and Ash

Yes, your favourite energy technology expert has prepared a simple but easy-to-use power plant model to augment your project finance model to calculate the following:

1) Coal quality and quantity of coal reserves (measured, indicative, inferred, total in-situ reserves)

2) Average specification of coal reserve (heating value, ash, volatile combustible matter, fixed carbon, sulfur, moisture)

3) Ultimate analysis of coal reserve (Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Sulfur) More »

Coal-Fired Power Power Plant Model (Pulverized, CFB, IGCC)

August 8th, 2011 5 Comments   Posted in cost of power generation

Coal-Fired Power Power Plant Model (Pulverized, CFB, IGCC)

Japan recently announced that it intends to wean away from Nuclear Power. So in the meantime, it has to rely on diesel gensets, oil thermal, coal thermal and combined cycle gas turbines firing oil and natural gas or LNG. This model will help you determine the economic feasibility and the first year tariff to meet equity returns as well as project returns including payback period of a coal-fired power plants (pulverized, CFB, IGCC) and compare with conventional (oil, gas, natural gas, hydro, geothermal) and renewable technologies (biomass, solar, wind, mini-hydro, ocean thermal energy conversion).

New Simplified Calculation Procedure for Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) and Feed-in Tariff

New Simplified Calculation Procedure for Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) and Feed-in Tariff

As part of the on-going technical preparations for the proposed mini-conference on the Mindanao Power Crisis this coming late August or early September 2010 and the main conference on “Energy & Climate Change”, the workshop coordinator, Mr. Marcial T. Ocampo, has prepared the simplified calculation procedure for calculating the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and levelized selling price (tariff) for conventional and renewable energy resources.

The result of the simplified formulas using the US NREL formula for generation cost and the RP MTO formula for selling price were compared with the results from a full-blown project finance model and the variance between the two methods were minimal in most of the power generation technologies analyzed.

The input data came from the IEPR research summary of 2007 and from internationally published data on power generation technology by noted experts such as Paul Breeze and yours truly, Marcial Ocampo. More »

Pulverized Coal

The file (1.59 MB) will cover the following topics:

TRADITIONAL COAL THERMAL

Coal is formed from plants by chemical and geological processes which occur over million of years.

First product of this process was peat (partially decomposed stems, twigs, bark), then transformed into lignite, bituminous, then anthracite.

Coal is the largest source of energy for power and other uses:

Primary Energy Electricity

World: 23%                        40%

US: 55%

Philippines: 13%                        38%

Topics – Traditional Coal Thermal

  • Coal Resource : Reserves, Extraction Rate, Life Time
  • Types of Coal and Reserves
  • Properties of Coal, Coal-Mixtures and Classification by Rank
