This paper presents the thermal and economic performance of a 210 MWe coalfired power plant situated in North India. Analysis is used to predict coal consumption rate, overall thermal efficiency, mass flow rate of steam through boiler, and Net present value (NPV) of plant for given load. Thermodynamic analysis was carried out using mass and energy equations followed by empirical correlations.
To meet climate targets one coal plant will need to close worldwide every day, or 100 GW every year, until 2040. But from 2010 to 2017, only around 240 GW was retired. In other words, there needs to be a near threefold increase in the amount of capacity closed to meet the temperature goal of Paris.
Mar 09, 2017 · Modern coal fired power plants usually boast efficiency that vary from 30% to 40%. Therefore, if we assume the conversion efficiency as 70% and the vapour cycle efficiency as 30% then we have an overall efficiency of the power plant at 21%.
