Thermodynamic Analysis of 120 MW Thermal Power Plant by Designed Computer Aided Software for Different Inlet Temperature Conditions and Generate Correction Curves
Pages : 20-22
The thermal power plants are used to generate power. In practical situations, when power plants are installed there are lots of constraints. This tends to reduce or increase output power and heat rate of thermal power plants. These constraints are leakages, installation errors etc. Due to these conditions, the designed power and heat rate are never achieved. Variations in the power output from plants is always a matter of disputes. So the correction curves for power and heat rate are generated for inlet temperature as a parameter at different conditions. These curves indicate that if input temperature conditions vary, then power output and heat rate also vary. It means plants design is correct.This paper deals with the development of a computer aided software and generate correction curves for 120 MW thermal power plant.
Key words: Inlet Temperature, Power Output, Heat Rate, Correction Curves, Software based on the Visual Basic 6.0
