The gas and steam turbines and combined cycle in IGCC systems

Ting Wang,    University of New Orleans, New Orleans, LA, United States

Abstract

The combined cycle power island consists of three major components: the gas turbine (GT), the heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), and the steam turbine (ST). The cleaned syngas is sent to the GT to produce electric power. The exhaust of the GT is used to generate steam through the HRSG. The steam is used to drive a steam turbine to generate more electric power. Since GTs are very special high-tech products, they are designed and manufactured with specific operating conditions in mind. Selection of GTs must be made from the existing commercially available models with their specific ratings; ...
