  • Efficiency of a standard gas-turbine power generation cycle running on different fuels

    This paper presents a study of second-law efficiency in a standard Brayton combined cycle power generation, using several paraffinic fuels ranging from methane to heptane. The main objective of the study was to identify a trend with the number of carbon atoms in the compound. In this way, a qualitative criterion can be built to evaluate the properties of poor-quality gas turbine fuels containing ...

  • Turbine Inspection

    Recent advances in natural gas exploration and extraction technology have led to skyrocketing projections of the amount of recoverable natural gas within US borders. This energy boom will result in the expanded use of gas-fired power plants to provide electricity to US homes and businesses over the coming decades. Not only does this mean cleaner and more abundant energy for the US environment and ...

  • Co-production of synthesis gas and power by integration of Partial Oxidation reactor, gas turbine and air separation unit

    A new synthesis gas production process based on partial oxidation (POX) of natural gas is investigated. Synthesis gas and mechanical power are generated in a plant that integrates a POX reactor, a synthesis gas turbine and an air separation unit. The synthesis gas is expanded in the turbine which runs the air separation unit. By means of an exergy analysis, it is shown that the synthesis gas ...

  • The natural gas revolution: Good or bad for energy efficiency?

    If there were an equivalent in the energy industry to Time Magazine’s Person of the Year, natural gas would be this year’s winner. The dramatic rise in natural gas supply, and fall in price, has reconfigured the energy scene in the United States, suddenly creating a bounty of domestic energy, driving down wholesale power prices and speeding retirement of polluting coal-fired plants. ...

  • Digester Developer Taps Natural Gas Markets

    IN the late 1990s, Dan Eastman and two colleagues were researching business opportunities in the renewable energy industry. They were looking for a commercially viable technology that could take renewable energy from an experimental phase to a solid business investment. In 1999, Eastman and his partners founded Microgy, Inc., with its base in Wisconsin. The company licensed the Xergi anaerobic ...

  • The economic benefits of HEPA-grade filtration for gas turbine operation in the power generation industry

    Everywhere we look these days, one message stands above all the rest: energy must be used with greater efficiency Global energy demand is estimated to rise between 25 and 30 percent between now and 2040, fueled by growth in economic output and by a growing population in which billions of people —despite working hard to advance their standards of living — subsequently and inevitably ...

  • Wind & solar energy and nature conservation

    Climate change and the degradation of ecosystems and biodiversity cannot be solved in isolation. Land and marine ecosystems play a crucial role in the climate system, capturing roughly half of carbon dioxide emissions generated by human activities (UNEP, 2009). Protecting biodiversity preserves ecosystem services that are important for regulating the climate and helping us to adapt to the impacts ...

  • The effect of precooling inlet air on CHP efficiency in natural gas pressure reduction stations

    Almost all pressure reduction stations in Iran use expansion valves to reduce the natural gas pressure, which leads to wasting large amount of exergy. In this paper, a system is proposed which includes the modification of a conventional pressure reduction station with the addition of a turbo expander and a gas turbine for power recovery and generation. The next step is investigating the effect of ...

  • Inhalation Health Risk Assessment of Air Toxic Emissions from Large Combustion Turbine Power Projects

    Power generation from combustion turbine projects continues to grow throughout the world. With natural gas as the most common primary fuel, and low-sulfur #2 oil as the backup fuel, combustion turbines are among the cleanest forms of fossil power generation. This paper discusses the results of a preliminary inhalation health risk assessment of air toxic emissions from four power plant ...

  • The Future Cost of Wind Power

    Chapter 1 The economics of wind power Wind power is capital intensive with most of the investment required upfront. The largest capital cost component is the turbine itself which can account for between 40% and 80% of the total capital cost of an onshore wind installation. Costs offshore are higher because of the more expensive operating environment and the greater difficulty establishing ...

  • The Emerging Power of Microgrids

    Over many decades, the centralized power grid — a one-way flow of electricity, generated by large, remote power plants and distributed over miles of transmission lines to homes and businesses — succeeded in delivering electricity across continents to billions. But in recent years the system’s shortcomings have become increasingly ...
