Free Download of : Power Generation Energy Efficient Design of Auxiliary Systems in Fossil-Fuel Power Plants
Energy efficiency is the least expensive way for power and process industries to meet a growing demand for cleaner energy, and this applies to the power generating industry as well.
This auxiliary equipment has a critical role in the safe operation of the plant and can be found in all plant systems. Perhaps the diversity of applications is one reason why a comprehensive approach to auxiliaries is needed to reduce their proportion of gross power and to decrease plant heat rate.
This handbook takes a comprehensive view of auxiliary systems and describes some common approaches to energy efficient design which can be applied in retrofit and new plant projects. This handbook reviews drive-power concepts, and provides useful design and engineering guidelines that can help to improve energy efficiency.
The extent of these energy savings are shown in fully worked-out numerical examples and in actual plant case histories throughout the text.
This handbook may be used as part of a training course for managers and technical staff in operating and engineering service companies, and may also be used in mechanical or electrical engineering university programs. This handbook complements existing best practices for power plant engineering and is not a substitute for detailed plant design and safety guidelines published by standards bodies and industry associations. The relevant sources for detailed guidelines are listed in the References section …..
