  • Emission Control Systems

    The operation of power plants to convert chemical, mechanical, thermal, or other energy resources to electrical energy for the transmission of energy to end users involves some production of byproducts. Operational permitting requirements place limits on both the quantity and quality of these emissions of byproducts. This chapter reviews some of the restrictions on power generation facility operating emissions and the technologies used to control these emissions. All aspects of the power plant operation are subject to regulation of emissions including any water streams from the plant including rainwater runoff, air emissions, and solid waste emissions. There are various concerns with the air emissions of a power plant which include particulate emissions, nitrogen oxide emission, and sulfur oxide emissions. Continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) are used to continuously monitor the air emissions from a power generation facility to ensure compliance with permitting requirements.

  • Methodology: Part 2

    Scientific and technical factors (S&T;) factors have been designed to help in meeting the standard for a new biomass fuel, as required by power generating companies. In this chapter, the methodology section of S&T; factors has been examined and analyzed in order to test the accuracy of their values. The energy factor (EF), combustion index factor (CIF), volatile matter factor (VMF), moisture factor (MF), ash factor (AF), density factor (DF), and nitrogen emission factor (NEF) form the backbone of the S&T; section of REA1 methodology. The chapter discusses evaluation of these factors in detail, and lists the different allocation methods used in a variety of field systems.

  • Control Systems

    The control system takes inputs from the field instrumentation system, performs necessary calculations and conversions, displays the status of the field equipment to the operations personnel and will provide commands to actuators in the field to control equipment as needed to ensure a safe and reliable power plant operation. One of the most important control systems in the fossil fuel plant is the boiler control system and burner management system. This chapter discusses the modern control room and control system. Pre 1980s, signals were sent to a control room and analog displays provided operations with the operating condition of the plant. Post 1980s, more commonly a distributed control system (DCS) is utilized to accept feedback of plant instrumentation signals, storage of historical data, calculation of automatic functions, and controls and provides the operations personnel with an interface to provide commands to the control system.

  • Fossil Fuels and The Basic Combustion Process

    The process of combustion requires three items: a combustible fuel containing a certain amount of available energy that can be released during the combustion process, oxygen in sufficient quantity to ensure complete combustion and a heat source. This chapter discusses the combustible fuel and the oxidizing agent (air) as they pertain to the typical fossil fuel steam generator. The two most common types of fossil fuels utilized for electricity generation are natural gas and coal. The chapter shows the combustion equations for various types of elements contained in fossil fuels. It also shows the theoretical maximum amount of energy released for one pound mass of element combusted. Fossil fuels are formed by the decomposition of organics over millions of years. The main combustible material in fossil fuel that is used to obtain chemical energy is carbon, although other molecules such as hydrogen and sulfur may provide some amount of energy during the combustion process.

  • Co-Firing Issues

    In order to find a suitable solution to biomass energy technical and engineering issues, while at the same time reducing costs and creating better efficiency, particularly concerning the technical aspects, biomass properties to be analyzed objectively and adjusted accordingly. Problems that should be considered concerning biomass materials used as a viable fuel can range from hardware engineering issues (biomass milling, fuels mixing, combustion, and by-products) to access to unwanted chemicals in the fuels themselves. Hardware degradation is a major problem when using biomass materials for co-firing with coal. When the biomass materials selected for usage have been already examined and tested thoroughly, an environmentally friendly and economically sound co- firing method can be achieved from both a scientific/technical and commercial standpoint.

  • LITHIUM¿¿¿ION BATTERY MANUFACTURING FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES: A CONTEMPORARY OVERVIEW

    Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) fall into one of the following four categories: hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), plug¿¿¿in electric vehicle (PHEV), extended range electric vehicle (EREV), and pure BEV. This chapter reviews different formats and structures of Li¿¿¿ion battery cells, modules, and packs in BEVs. It focuses on the characteristics relevant to the joining, assembly, and packaging rather than the battery chemistries, functions, and performances. A number of BEV manufactures use pouch cells for lightweighting, better volumetric energy density, and high spatial efficiency. The chapter reviews a few selected joining technologies that are pertinent to Li¿¿¿on battery cell and pack manufacturing, that is, ultrasonic welding, resistance welding, laser welding, wire bonding, and mechanical joining. It discusses the advantages and limitations as well as the applications in major BEVs. The chapter also discusses the battery manufacturing processes and particularly the joining processes. The chapter focuses on the manufacturing processes most relevant to BEVs in today's marketplace.

  • Reciprocating Engines

    Smaller generators may use diesel oil or gas¿¿¿fired reciprocating engines for their prime movers. Reciprocating engines are smaller in power ratings than their turbine counterpart prime movers, so the connected generator will have a smaller kVA rating. This chapter discusses the basic ideal Otto thermodynamic cycle. The thermodynamic process for the ignition combustion engine is defined by the Otto cycle, which is similar to the Brayton combustion cycle that describes the combustion process for gas turbines where there are four processes in the combustion cycle: compression, combustion, expansion, and exhaust. There are two main types of reciprocating engines: two¿¿¿stroke and four¿¿¿stroke engines. Theoretically, in the process of the ideal Otto cycle, the entire combustion process takes place instantaneously at top dead center (TDC). For some types of fuel, the combustion is initiated with a spark plug while for other types, the compression alone generates enough heat to cause combustion.

  • Gas Turbines

    This chapter discusses the basic design and components of a combustion turbine. Gas Turbines operate in a fashion similar to steam turbines. Both the steam turbine and gas turbine convert the thermal energy contained in the media that is supplied to the turbine into mechanical energy. Instead of using steam as the media for the transfer of energy, gas turbines use air or gas. In the typical combustion turbine, there are at least six fundamental components to the combustion turbine required to achieve the conversion of energy to mechanical energy. These are air inlet, compressor, combustion system, turbine, exhaust and support systems. To achieve combustion, we need the three elements of the combustion triangle; an oxygen source, a fuel source, and a heat source. Various types of instrumentation are necessary to monitor the status of the operating combustion turbine and provide the control system with the necessary feedback.
