Performance Management of Thermal Power Stations for Improved Efficiency using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) / Automated Solution 09 -12 October, 2018


Thermal Power plants have the following optimization objectives: • Heat Rate Improvement • CO2 Reduction • NOX Reduction • Improved Unit Availability – Less Forced Outages • Reduced use of Reheat and Superheat Sprays • Reduced Soot Blowing • Conservation of Water • Reduced auxiliary consumption and Performance Improvement • PAT Cycle Improvement Overall thermal efficiency of a power plant can be expressed as a product of Combustion efficiency (Heat addition) and Cycle efficiency, which converts heat to mechanical work. This is where a greater potential for optimization exists. Continuous efforts are needed to implement innovative and best practices and methodologies in the operational area in order to maintain thermal power plants to achieve higher PLFs. With this scenario, this programme is conceived for the benefit of practicing engineers. Optimisation of auxiliary consumption and plant heat rates at low loads have a greater bearing in the merit order dispatch of the plant in the present regulatory regime.
