  • Exergoeconomic analysis of a Kalina cycle coupled coal–fired steam power plant

    This paper presents exergoeconomic analysis of a Kalina cycle coupled coal–fired steam power plant using specific exergy costing (SPECO) methodology. Cost–balance and auxiliary equations are developed and solved. The results indicate that in the topping cycle, the boiler and the turbine contribute maximum to the formation of product cost. High value of exergoeconomic factor for the boiler ...
