Advances in Steam Turbines for Modern Power Plants provides an authoritative review of steam turbine design optimization, analysis and measurement, the development of steam turbine blades, and other critical components, including turbine retrofitting and steam turbines for renewable power plants. As a very large proportion of the world's electricity is currently generated in systems driven by steam turbines, (and will most likely remain the case in the future) with steam turbines operating in fossil-fuel, cogeneration, combined cycle, integrated gasification combined cycle, geothermal, solar thermal, and nuclear plants across the world, this book provides a comprehensive assessment of the research and work that has been completed over the past decades.Presents an in-depth review on steam turbine design optimization, analysis, and measurementWritten by a range of experts in the areaProvides an overview of turbine retrofitting and advanced applications in power generation

Abstract null null The work explores the opportunities offered by higher temperature heat transfer/heat storage fluids, and higher temperature power cycles, in higher concentration solar thermal power plants. The goal is to design a renewable energy plant able to supply fully dispatchable electricity to the grid at a cost, inclusive of dispatchability, better than using wind and solar photovoltaic with external energy storage by batteries. By increasing the receiver/hot tank temperature from 565...

Power plants are considered as the major source of carbon dioxide pollution in Kuwait. The gas is released from the combustion of fuel with air to convert water into steam. It has been proven that the use of enriched oxygen can reduce fuel consumption and minimize emissions. In this study, UniSim (Honeywell, Charlotte, NC, USA) was used to estimate the fuel savings and carbon dioxide emissions of the largest power plant in Kuwait (Alzour). Results showed that at 30 mol% oxygen, the fuel consumpt...

Offshore plants have many inherent constraints and risks compared to onshore plants, and it is crucial to optimize the operation of the offshore plant by adhering to constraints. Previous studies proposed a framework of utility systems that operate under various conditions. However, few studies have addressed the optimization of utility systems during the operating life cycle. To fill in this gap, we propose a new methodology for the design and optimization of the utility systems in the offshore...

This paper analyses the performance of a future planned 500 MW ultra-supercritical pulverized coal power plant. The steam cycle configuration comprises a single-stage reheat, four high pressure feedwater heaters, three low pressure feedwater heaters and the deaerator. The electricity generation unit consists of a high pressure turbine, an intermediate pressure turbine, two double-flow low pressure turbines and the electric generator. The analysis is carried out for live steam temperature of 600 ...

In this paper is performed exergy analysis of three cylinder steam turbine from the supercritical coal-fired power plant. Exergy analysis parameters were calculated for the whole turbine and each cylinder for the ambient temperature range between 5 °C and 45 °C. The dominant mechanical power producer of all the cylinders is a low pressure cylinder (LPC) which produces 262.06 MW of mechanical power. An increase in the ambient temperature increases exergy destructions and decreases exergy efficien...

Abstract Failure analysis of a 17th stage blade of a steam turbine fractured in the vicinity of the lacing hole is discussed in this study. For this purpose, visual inspection, chemical and structural analyses, hardness and uniaxial tensile tests, macro and micro-fractography, fracture mechanics calculations, as well as computer simulations have been carried out. According to the results of the hardness and tensile tests and a comparison with the properties of AISI 410 martensitic stainless stee...

Abstract Autoreclosure is an irreplaceable protective scheme that was initially engineered for power system stability enhancement especially in areas with high isokeraunic levels. Unsuccessful reclosure on transmission lines emanating from thermal power plants has been long identified as a potential hazard to the shafts of the turbine-generators in these power plants. Therefore, the principal focus of this work is to mitigate the shaft torsional oscillations resulting from unsuccessful reclosure...
