Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fossil-fuel power plants account for the majority of worldwide power generation.  New power plants must be constructed to meet the increasing global energy demands that current power plants can not keep up with, due to their old age and inefficency.  As cheaper fossil fuel resources are exhausted and emissions criteria are tightened, utilities are turning to power plants designed with performance in mind to satisfy requirements for improved capacity, efficiency, and environmental characteristics.

This book provides a comprehensive reference on the state of the art of gas-fired and coal-fired power plants, their major components and performance improvement options. Part one critically reviews advanced power plant designs which target both higher efficiency and flexible operation, including reviews of combined cycle technology and materials performance issues.

Part two reviews major plant components for improved operation, including advanced membrane technology for both hydrogen (H2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) separation, as well as flue gas handling technologies for improved emissions control of sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), mercury, ash and particulates. The section concludes with coverage of high-temperature sensors, and monitoring and control technology that are essential to power plant operation and performance optimization.

Part three begins with coverage of low-rank coal upgrading and biomass resource utilization for improved power plant fuel flexibility. Chapters deal with routes to improve the environmental impact, the integration of underground coal gasification and the application of carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage. Part three ends with a review of improved generation performance and coverage of syngas and hydrogen (H2) production from fossil-fuel feedstocks.
