  1. 1. Steam Turbine Optimisation for Solar Thermal Power Plant Operation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : James Spelling; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : solar thermal power; steam-turbine; start-up; cool-down; dispatchability increase; koncentrerad solenergi; ångturbin; uppstart; nedkylning; ökad flexibilitet;

    Abstract : The provision of a sustainable energy supply is one of the most important issues facing humanity at the current time, given the strong dependence of social and economic prosperity on the availability of affordable energy and the growing environmental concerns about its production. Solar thermal power has established itself as a viable source of renewable power, capable of generating electricity at some of the most economically attractive rates. READ MORE

  2. 2. High temperature corrosion in a biomass-fired power boiler Reducing furnace wall corrosion in a waste wood-fired power plant with advanced steam data

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Yousef Alipour; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; High temperature corrosion; Waterwalls; Power plant corrosion; NOx reducing enviroments; Biomass; Waste wood; Thermodynamic calculation modelling; corrosion-resistance alloy; Furnace wall corrosion; Högtemperaturekorrosion; Eldstadsväggar; kraftverks korrosion; låg Nox mijöer; biomassa; returträ; Termodynamisk modellering; korrosionsbeständighet legering; eldstadskorrosion;

    Abstract : The use of waste (or recycled) wood as a fuel in heat and power stations is becoming more widespread in Sweden (and Europe), because it is CO2 neutral with a lower cost than forest fuel. However, it is a heterogeneous fuel with a high amount of chlorine, alkali and heavy metals which causes more corrosion than fossil fuels or forest fuel. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modern Thermal Power Plants - Aspects on Modelling and Evaluation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Klas Jonshagen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; T-Q diagram; Combined cycle; heat- and mass-balance modelling; carbon capture; CO2;

    Abstract : The European Union (EU) has laid down very clear objectives for the reduction of greenhouse gases in the hope that it will prevent or mitigate climate change. Political incentives are used to make the power industry adopt changes in order to reach these EU targets. READ MORE

  4. 4. Improved Steam Turbine Design for Optimum Efficiency and Reduced Cost of Ownership

    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Srikanth Deshpande; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-04-02]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : The cost of ownership of a power plant is partly governed by the efficiency of the turbine island. The turbine stands for the production revenues when transforming the energy in fuel into electric power and district heating. READ MORE

  5. 5. Conceptual Thermodynamic Cycle and Aerodynamic Gas Turbine Design - on an Oxy-fuel Combined Cycle

    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : ADRIAN NILSSON DAHLQVIST; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016-04-14]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gas turbine; combined cycle; conceptual design; aerodynamic; mid-span design; through-flow design; oxy-fuel; SCOC-CC; OCC; gas turbine; Combined cycle; conceptual design; aerodynamic; mid-span design; Through-flow design; Oxy-fuel; SCOC-CC; OCC;

    Abstract : The world is today facing a serious problem with global warming, which is heading towards an appallingly high temperature level. The greater part of the overall climate science community agree that global warming is caused by the greenhouse effect, which depends largely on emitted CO2 emissions from the combustion of fossil fuel.
