A NGCC power plant with a CO2 post-combustion capture option. Optimal economics for different generation/capture goals
Fossil fuel power plants are one of the major sources of electricity generation, although invariably release greenhouse gases. Due to international treaties and countries regulations, CO2emissions reduction is increasingly ...
A Strategy for the Economic Optimization of Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Power Plants by Taking Advantage of Useful Thermodynamic Relationships
Optimal combined cycle gas turbine power plants characterized by minimum specific annual cost values are here determined for wide ranges of market conditions as given by the relative weights of capital investment and ...
Optimal economic strategy for the multiperiod design and long-term operation of natural gas combined cycle power plants.
Optimal power plant designs are achieved by means of a proposed multiperiod non-linear programming formulation that utilizes the net present value as objective function, while construction, operation and dismantling of ...
Families of optimal thermodynamic solutions for combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plants
Optimal designs of a CCGT power plant characterized by maximum second law efficiency values are determined for a wide range of power demands and different values of the available heat transfer area. These thermodynamic ...
Comparison between conventional and ultrasoundassisted techniques for extraction of anthocyanins from grape pomace. Experimental results and mathematical modeling
Conventional and ultrasound assisted extraction of anthocyanins from grape pomace are here analyzed and compared. Mathematical modeling is used firstly to represent the extraction process and determine the associated ...
An optimization model for evaluating the economic impact of availability and maintenance notions during the synthesis and design of a power plant
In this paper, we introduce an optimization strategy in order to comprehensively quantify the impact of availability and maintenance notions during the early stages of synthesis and design of a new natural gas combined ...
