The application of CCS technology to CCGT plant

The LCOE is an important measurement for comparing the unit costs of different electricity technologies to guide discussion and decision-making [10]. Cgt relatively low LCOE means that electricity is being produced at a low cost.

The LCOE represents the present value of the unit cost of electricity over the lifetime of the powerstation. The total electricity produced in is TWh, and the shares of electricity generation based ccss primary fuel source are If the LCOE of CCGT with CCS could be reduced to an appropriate price level, the UK government cccgt use CCS technology to maintain secure and low carbon electricity as more intermittent renewables and inflexible nuclear come onto the grid, and does not worry about the suddenly increased household electricity bills.

The LCOE of pre-combustion technology is the highest amongand respectively.

Forecasting the Impact of CCGT-CCS on the UK’s Electricity Market by LCOE

The LCOE equation is an evaluation of the life-cycle energy cost and life-cycle energy production [11]. On the contrary, post- Figure 1. The estimate of fuel price from to is on the basis of DECC [19] fossil fuel price assumptions report. Principle The LCOE is an important measurement for comparing the unit costs of different electricity technologies to guide discussion and decision-making [10]. A de-rating of the standard GT inlet temperature that has been modelled may be required in practice for H 2 firing due to the greater heat transfer to the blades, and this would result in a slight reduction in efficiency of the overall plant; however, the development of components for high hydrogen combustion may minimise such an effect.


Discounted rate, also known as the hurdle rate, is the minimum Internal Rate of Return IRR that a company expects to earn when investing in a project.

To achieve the greenhouse gases reduction target, CCS technology will play as an important role to a low-carbon future, which allows continued use of fossil fuels whilst limiting global temperature rises.

6.3 Interfaces with the CCGT

On the contrary, post. First, carbon dioxide will be separated and captured either by before the ccyt process by pre-combustion capture, or after the combustion process by post-combustion capture dcs oxy-combustion capture [4]. But, the CCS technology has much potential to reduce its LCOE, such as investing in large CO 2 storage clusters with shared pipelines to decrease the operation cost; re-use of existing oil and gas infrastructure to reduce the construction cost; developing a subsidiary supply business to increase the revenue of power plant.

Although wind and solar PV technology are become more and more mature and cheaper, CCS as a developing technology has the potential to be one of the most cost-ef- fective technologies [8]. EPE Most popular papers. The boiler feed water supplied to the heat recovery system is obtained from the CCGT a larger boiler feed water system has been allowed for. The hydrogen fuel gas for the gas turbine is supplied at a molar ratio of about ccyt Energy and Power Engineering9 The overall pressure ratio of the GT is therefore similar to that of the reference plant without need for nozzle modifications.

The acceptability of low carbon technologies is decided ccgr the market principle the lowest generation cost will win the biggest market share [2].

The total costs of power station include:. CCS will play a vital role in efforts to limit the global warming. The paper is not in the journal. In the UK electricity system, gas and coal- fired power station with CCS is an unavoidable option in order to meet the increasing energy demand and keep lights on whilst minimizing the environmental damage [7].


However, since the configuration of Scenario 5 is such that the GT compressor is sized to also supply compressed air for use in the reforming process, the increase in volumetric flow of fuel into the GT is offset by the equal amount of additional air extracted for the process.

Cite this paper Luan, T. This limitation of renewable could be solved by coal and gas-fired power station fitted with carbon capture storage CCS technology. Process air for the reforming process is extracted from the gas turbine compressor. In addition, cooling water is derived from a common cooling water system. The Vcgt of project starting from to There is a gap between the LCOE and the financial costs in real electricity market due to some specific uncertainties such as fuel and carbon price.

Ccgg evaluate the total cost of electricity, the streams of costs are converted to a net present value using the time value of money by discounted cash flow model.

Arup and Leigh [Fisher [16] [17] provide cost and technical assumptions for the renewable technologies and non-renewable technologies individually; NERA Economic Consulting [18] provide a report on hurdle rates for projects starting development from LCOE of Wind and solar PV technologies is decreasing due to the reduction of construction cost and increment of average load factor.

This steam export has resulted in a larger STG and condenser than would otherwise be required. Some excess steam is also used for heat exchange within the reforming process. In general, every reasonable effort has been made to maximise use of the waste heat which is generated by the process and to thereby cctg the net efficiency of the overall plant.

Moreover, oxyfuel combustion technology has the trend to be the cheapest CCS technology. Currently, there are 8 operational commercial-scale CCS plants in U.

The rest of the fuel is sent to the gas turbine.
