Power Plant Efficiency: Problems and Analysis

SKU: HR01900CENDuration: 60 Minutes

This course is designed to reinforce major concepts taught in the heat rate improvement series by having participants participate in the identification and analysis of problems that affect heat rate. After completing this course, participants should be able to identify some of the problems that commonly occur in power plants by using related parameters, and describe how heat rate and fuel consumption are affected by these problems. The final segment in the course summarizes key points from the courses in the heat rate improvement series.

Learning Objectives

  • Analysis of a Condenser Problem
  • Given a set of conditions, describe how changes in related parameters can be used to identify the cause of a decrease in condenser vacuum.
  • Describe how a problem that causes condenser vacuum to decrease affects unit heat rate and fuel consumption.
  • Analysis of a Boiler Problem
  • Given a set of conditions, describe how changes in related parameters can be used to identify the cause of an increase in boiler exit gas temperature.
  • Describe how a problem that causes boiler exit gas temperature to increase affects unit heat rate and fuel consumption.
  • Analysis of a Feedwater Heater Problem
  • Given a set of conditions, describe how changes in related parameters can be used to identify the cause of a decrease in final feedwater heater outlet temperature.
  • Describe how a problem that causes final feedwater heater outlet temperature to decrease affects heat rate and fuel consumption.
