Turbine-Generator Analysis

In categories: Blog

January 4, 2010

The Virtual Energy Audit becomes a valuable tool to evaluate the potential additions of turbine-generators to an existing power plant. Adding turbine-generators will have two salient results:

  1. It will provide electrical power for use in the plant and/or sales to the power grid for which either would have direct economic benefits.
  2. If the turbine is a back-pressure version, it will provide additional lower pressure steam to use for sale and use.

The VEA will provide answers on the total plant operations such as the effects of additional steam demand and generation, with its costs, and the amount of additional back-pressure steam to be balanced against steam demand. Boosting steam generation to feed the turbine-generators will have many potential effects that the VEA will easily identify.
