9781845695156: Advanced Power Plant Materials, Design and Technology (Woodhead Publishing Series in Energy)

Fossil-fuel power plants account for the majority of worldwide power generation. Increasing global energy demands, coupled with issues of ageing and inefficient power plants, have led to new power plant construction programmes. As cheaper fossil fuel resources are exhausted and emissions criteria are tightened, utilities are turning to power plants designed with performance in mind to satisfy requirements for improved capacity, efficiency, and environmental characteristics.

Advanced power plant materials, design and technology provides a comprehensive reference on the state of the art of gas-fired and coal-fired power plants, their major components and performance improvement options. Part one critically reviews advanced power plant designs which target both higher efficiency and flexible operation, including reviews of combined cycle technology and materials performance issues.

Part two reviews major plant components for improved operation, including advanced membrane technology for both hydrogen (H2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) separation, as well as flue gas handling technologies for improved emissions control of sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), mercury, ash and particulates. The section concludes with coverage of high-temperature sensors, and monitoring and control technology that are essential to power plant operation and performance optimisation.

Part three begins with coverage of low-rank coal upgrading and biomass resource utilisation for improved power plant fuel flexibility. Routes to improve the environmental impact are also reviewed, with chapters detailing the integration of underground coal gasification and the application of carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage. Finally, improved generation performance is reviewed with coverage of syngas and hydrogen (H2) production from fossil-fuel feedstocks.

With its distinguished international team of contributors, Advanced power plant materials, design and technology is a standard reference for all power plant engineers and operators, as well as to academics and researchers in this field.

  • Provides a comprehensive reference on the state-of-the-art gas-fired and coal-fired power plants, their major components and performance improvement options
  • Examines major plant components for improved operation as well as flue gas handling technologies for improved emissions control
  • Routes to improve environmental impact are discussed with chapters detailing the integration of underground coal gasification

From the Back Cover:

Fossil-fuel power plants account for the majority of current power generation, be they coal-, oil- or gas-fired. Many of these plants are now ageing and cannot keep up with rising global energy demands and increasingly stringent emissions criteria. To ensure security and economy of supply, utilities are building a new generation of advanced fossil-fuel power plants designed with higher output, higher efficiency, and better environmental characteristics.

This book provides a comprehensive reference for anyone interested in next generation fossil-fuel power plants. The book critically reviews advanced power plant materials, design and technology, including improved efficiency and economics, improved fuel flexibility, improved environmental performance, and improved carbon footprint. Coverage is further extended with a review of technology at major component level, and the incorporation of alternative energy conversion units, as well as issues of operational performance under greater renewable power loads as part of a distributed generation network.

About the Author:

Dermot Roddy is the Science City Professor of Energy and Director of the Sir Joseph Swan Institute at Newcastle University, UK. He was previously responsible for the development of a renewable energy and alternative fuel programme for Renew Tees Valley Ltd, UK, and he is noted for his research in optimisation and control.
