Ambient Temperature Rise Consequences for Power Generation in Australia

Iftekhar Khan and Firoz Alam,    School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, RMIT University, Melbourne, VIC, Australia

Scant information is available on the impact of rising ambient temperature on power generation capacity and efficiency, except for a handful of studies on nuclear power generation in Germany, France, and Switzerland. The objective of this chapter is to model the impact of ambient air temperature rise on fossil-fuel-based power generation in Australia because its power plants are located in varied climate conditions where ambient temperature varies notably. The study included ambient temperature effect on power generation over ...
