Increasing the efficiency of pulverised coal-fired power plant

About this webinar

This webinar will give an update on the current state-of-the-art coal plants and the major ways to increase plant efficiency beyond the current record of 47.5% (LHV, net).

R&D programmes on a 700˚C advanced ultrasupercritical plant (AUSC) in China, EU, Japan, USA and India will be reviewed.

Development in double reheat cycles and novel turbine configurations, which can increase plant efficiency to around 50% and beyond if novel materials are used, will also be discussed. Additionally, high-temperature retrofits from China and the benefits of low-pressure economisers will be included.
