  • `Air Permitting for a New Coal-Fired Power Plant,` published in Power magazine, November

    Prevention Of Significant Deterioration (PSD) Construction of any new source, including a greenfield power plant, is subject to New Source Review (NSR). If the source is located in an attainment area, it will also trigger Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permitting, as required by the Clean Air Act (CAA) for major stationary sources of air pollution in attainment areas. A major ...

  • Case Study - Aluto Langano Power Plant Rehabilitation

    Aluto Langano, Ethiopia – 2007 The Aluto Langano Geothermal Pilot Plant (ALGPP) is located on the Aluto volcanic complex of the Ethiopian Rift valley, close to the eastern escarpment between Lake Langano and Lake Ziway, some 200 km southeast of Addis Ababa. The Aluto volcanic complex is a young acidic system consisting of domes, lava, and pyroclastic interbeds. The geothermal field was ...

  • Case study - E.ON Power Plant Nuremberg

    Water level, water flow and discharge are monitored at two inflows of the E.ON electricity power plan Franken I, using the OTT SLD, with horizontal Doppler-flow sensors. The purpose of this measurement is to optimize the operation of the plan which partly covers the demand for electricity in the conurbation of Nuremberg-Fuerth-Erlangen.  OTT technologies for this project have been in use ...

  • Air pollution modelling of the Calabrian pine forests withered by the Yatagan thermal power plant, Turkey

    The emissions from the chimney of the Yatagan thermal power plant have caused a 3050-hectare forest to wither. Such air pollutants as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and fly ash are carried towards the Bencikdagi Calabrian pine forests on the prevailing north-east winds. To study these effects, the Q-Basic computer program developed for the Gaussian puff model was used with meteorological data ...

  • Operational air pollution prediction and doses calculation in case of nuclear emergency at Krško Nuclear Power Plant

    The paper presents fully operational air pollution prediction and doses calculation system working in 2/24/7/365 mode for more than a decade in Krško Nuclear Power Plant (NPP). Krško NPP lies in complex terrain in Slovenia very close to Croatia border. A dedicated software is available for detailed estimation of possible radioactive emission (source term). This part of the procedure is used by ...

  • Game theory approach for the design of an optimal air pollution control system for thermal power plants

    A procedure, based on the concept of game theory, for the optimum design of an air pollution control system in thermal power plants is described. The problem is formulated as a four-criteria optimisation problem, with the cost of the electrostatic precipitator, the cost of the stack, the maximum ground-level concentration of particulate matter and the maximum ground-level concentration of sulfur ...

  • SAGA: a decision support system for air pollution management around a coal-fired power plant

    Air quality models are currently feasible approaches to prevent air pollution episodes. From one of the first source-oriented modelling approaches for air pollution forecasting (Souto et al., 1994, 1996, 1998), a new decision support system for air quality management, SAGA, was developed to provide support to As Pontes Power Plant (APPP) staff. SAGA can provide air pollution forecasts and manage ...

  • Energy and exergy analysis of a gas turbine power plant in Algeria

    An exergy analysis of a twin ABB GT13E2 Gas Turbines (GTs) power plant (2 ? 146.2 MW) is presented in this paper. This plant is running since 2004 at F'Krina in the northeastern part of Algeria. The analysis was performed by the flow-sheet programme, 'Cycle-Tempo'. At off-design load (83%), the plant and its apparatus conserve nearly the same design load performances. However, the performance of ...
