Description Combined cycles for power generation EPUB

Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) is the use of a heat engine or power station to generate electricity and useful heat at the same time. Trigeneration or combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP) refers to the simultaneous generation of electricity and useful heating and cooling from the combustion of a fuel or a solar heat terms cogeneration and trigeneration can be.

Combined Cycle Plant for Power Generation: Introduction. The process for converting the energy in a fuel into electric power involves the creation of mechanical work, which is then transformed into electric power by a generator.

Depending on the fuel type and thermodynamic process, the overall efficiency of this conversion can be as low as Combined-cycle power generation is a two-cycle electricity generation process that uses the heat from the first cycle to run a second cycle.

2) In the pyramid below, fill in the spaces with the terms efficiency, fuel switching, and conservation in order of importance. Combined cycles correspond to this new generation of thermal power plants.

Keywords: compression, expansion, combustion, combined cycle, HRSG, afterburner. The principle of a combined cycle is to operate in cascade one or more gas turbines, followed by a steam power plant whose heat source is the cold source of gas turbines (Figure ).
