Dynamic simulator and model predictive control of an integrated solar combined cycle plant
This paper presents the design and evaluation of a dynamic simulator for an ISCC (integrated solar combined cycle) plant. The design of the simulator is based on the phenomenological equations for both a combined cycle ...
Exergy-based method for analyzing the composition of the electricity cost generated in gas-fired combined cycle plants
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2008)
The proposed method to analyze the composition of the cost of electricity is based on the energy conversion processes and the destruction of the exergy through the several thermodynamic processes that comprise a combined ...
Combined cycle versus one thousand diesel power plants: pollutant emissions, ecological efficiency and economic analysis
(Elsevier B.V., 2007-04-01)
The increase in the use of natural gas in Brazil has stimulated public and private sectors to analyse the possibility of using combined cycle systems for generation of electrical energy. Gas turbine combined cycle power ...
ADAPTIVE HYBRID PREDICTIVE CONTROL FOR A COMBINED CYCLE POWER PLANT OPTIMIZATION
(JOHN WILEY & SONS LTD, 2008)
Adaptive hybrid predictive control for a combined cycle power plant optimization
(JOHN WILEY & SONS LTD, 2008-03)
The design and development of an adaptive hybrid predictive controller for the optimization of a real combined cycle power plant (CCPP) are presented. The real plant is modeled as a hybrid system, i.e. logical conditions ...
Optimal economic strategy for the multiperiod design and long-term operation of natural gas combined cycle power plants
Optimal power plant designs are achieved by means of a proposed multiperiod non-linear programming formulation that utilizes the net present value as objective function, while construction, operation and dismantling of the ...
Analysis of hybrid waste-to-energy for medium-sized cities
Urban centers have a huge demand for electricity and the growing problem of the solid waste management generated by their population, a relevant social and administrative problem. The correct disposal of the municipal solid ...
Short-Term Scheduling of Combined Cycle Units Using Mixed Integer Linear Programming Solution
(Scientific Research Publishing, 2013-03)
Combined cycle plants (CCs) are broadly used all over the world. The inclusion of CCs into the optimal resource scheduling causes difficulties because they can be operated in different operating configuration modes based ...
Availability analysis of heat recovery steam generators used in thermal power plants
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2011)
The combined-cycle gas and steam turbine power plant presents three main pieces of equipment: gas turbines, steam turbines and heat recovery steam generator (HRSG). In case of HRSG failure the steam cycle is shut down, ...
