Abstract [en]

The design-point performance characteristics of a wide variety of combined-cogeneration power plants, with different amounts of supplementary firing (or no supplementary firing), different amounts of steam injection (or no steam injection), different amounts of exhaust gas condensation, etc., without limiting these parameters to present-day limits are investigated. A representative power plant with appropriate components for these plant enhancements is developed. A computer program,is used to evaluate the performance of various power plants using standard inputs for component efficiencies, and the design-point performance of these plants is computed. The results are presented as thermal efficiency, specific power, effectiveness, and specific rate of energy in district heating. The performance of the simple-cycle gas turbine dominates the overall plant performance; the plant efficiency and power are mainly determined by turbine inlet temperature and compressor pressure ratio; increasing amounts of steam injection in the gas turbine increases the efficiency and power; increasing amounts of supplementary firing decreases the efficiency but increases the power; with sufficient amounts of supplementary team injection the exhaust-gas condensate is sufficient to make up for water lost in steam injection; and the steam-turbine power is a fraction (0.1 to 0.5) of the gas-turbine power output. Regions of "optimum" parameters for the power plant based oil design-point power hot-water demand, and efficiency are shown. A method,for fuel-cost allocation between electricity and hot water is recommended.
