Prediction of performance, energy savings and increase in profitability of two gas turbine steam generator cogeneration plant, based on experimental data

Publication year: 2011brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 26 January 2011brFrancisco, Jiménez-Espadafor Aguilar , Miguel Torres, García , Elisa Carvajal, Trujillo , José Antonio, Becerra Villanueva , Francisco J., Florencio OjedabrThis study analyses three feasible regulation methods of an in-service cogeneration plant. The main task is to study the potential energy savings, CO2 reduction and the increase in profitability compatible with the lowest transformation costs.The cogeneration system is composed of two General Electric LM2500 gas turbines and a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG). Two plant localizations in Spain have been considered; San Fernando (Cádiz) where the current plant is located, and Burgos. The latter has been taken into account to analyze the effect of cooler weather on the regulation methods.The paper has been divided into three parts. First, a revision…br Research highlights: ► Gas turbine steam generator cogeneration plant performance prediction. ► Gas turbine steam generator cogeneration plant part load operation. ► Increase in profitability of gas turbine steam generator cogeneration plant.
