Combined Cycle Power Plant

The Combined Cycle Power Plant consists of two gas turbine generator units Siemens V 94.2, two heat recovery steam generators, a steam turbine - generator complete with a condenser and condensate / feedwater system and all required auxiliaries. A gas turbine that drives its own generator, exhaust into a special boiler called a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) that generates steam for use in Steam Turbine. One of the principal reasons for the popularity of the combined cycle power plants is their high thermal efficiency. Combined cycle plants with thermal efficiencies as high as 52% have been built. Combined cycle plants can achieve these high efficiencies because much of the heat exhaust from the gas turbine(s) is captured and used in the Rankine cycle portion of the plant. Refer figure. The heat from the exhaust gases would normally be lost to the atmosphere in an open cycle gas turbine.

Another reason for the popularity of combined cycle plant is that it requires less time for their construction as compared to a conventional steam power plant of the same output. Although it takes longer time to build a combined cycle plant than a simple gas turbine plant. Natural gas is the most common fuel used by combined cycle gas turbine power plants. At KAPCO three fuels are used i.e. Gas, HSD and Furnace Oil. The main components of a Combined Cycle include the following: Gas Turbine Steam Turbine Diverter Damper Feedwater HRSG Condenser and Condensate

Pumps Cooling Tower etc


Introduction to GT V94.2 and ST

The two gas turbines are provided to fire natural gas, high speed diesel oil and furnace oil (heavy fuel oil). The Siemens V94.2 gas turbines are driving the air cooled generators, which have max. output power of 170 MVA (144 MW at pf = 0.85). The gas turbines flue gasses are directly conveyed to the adjacent heat recovery boilers the energy of which is transferred to the feedwater loop. The HP-system of the boiler is producing the HP steam. For this purpose it has to be supplied with the right amount of feedwater at any time during its operation: e.g. during start up, load variations etc. Additional it has to produce steam of a specific quality, which means of correct pressure and temperature which varies again with the different operation modes and load conditions. The HP-system generates steam at 60 bar / 530 C from the thermal energy contained in the GT exhaust gas. The LP-system of the boiler is producing the LP-steam. For this purpose it has to be supplied with the right amount of feedwater at any time during its operation: e.g. during start up, load variations etc. The LP-steam in the range of 3-10 bar is used for condensate heating and for the feedwater deaeration in the deaerator. The main steam flows to the steam turbine which drives the air cooled generator of max. 175 MVA (150 MW at pf = 0.85). The steam turbine is designed as a single - shaft machine with separate HP and LP sections. The HP section is a single flow cylinder and the LP section is a double flow cylinder. Turbine bypass system is to dump the extra steam in the condenser during startup and steam unloading conditions. Both the exhaust steam and the bypass steam are condensed by means of a water cooled box type condenser. Condensate pumps take suction from the condenser hot well and discharge through the gland steam condenser and the LP-preheater to the feedwater storage tank. One condensate storage tank for controlling the water level is provided. The condensate is further deaerated in the feedwater tank to the specified oxygen content. LPfeedwater pumps feed the water from the storage tank to the drums of the preheating system in the HRSG's in order to preheat the feedwater in the feedwater storage tank. An auxiliary steam system

supplies steam for the turbine gland sealing and for the feedwater tank heating during start up. HP-feedwater pumps deliver the feedwater into boiler drums of the steam generators at the design pressure under all operating conditions. The function of the circulating water system is to provide a heat sink for the condenser and remove the heat to the environment via the cooling tower. Further the system is connected with the closed cooling water system via the service cooling water system. The task of the service cooling water system is to remove the heat absorbed by the closed cooling water system in cooling components of the gas turbine generator, the steam-, condensate- and feedwater cycle via the closed cooling water heat exchanger and to transfer this heat to the circulating water system. A water treatment plant consists of a make-up water demineralization plant, regeneration station with chemical storage tanks and regeneration wastes neutralization is installed with all necessary equipment for satisfactory operation of the CCPP. Furthermore a chlorination plant for the main circulating water system and for the fresh water (Muzafargarh Canal) system is installed.

The figure 1.1 shows the electrical systems configuration of the CCPP in a simplified manner. Each gas turbine generator unit and the steam turbine generator unit are interconnected via its own main transformers to the 220 kV switchyard. The gas turbine generator is capable of being fully automatically started by electrical energy fed from the main grid via 220/11 kV main unit transformer and the unit auxiliary transformer. The steam turbine generator unit can be started via the 11 kV switchgears either from unit 13 or from unit 14 which are connected by means of bus-coupler to the 11 kV switchgear of the steam turbine generator. The auxiliary power system is designed to meet all plant auxiliaries and related buildings service requirements. Power for the auxiliary power systems is fed from the unit auxiliary transformer via the 11 kV switchgear. Low voltage auxiliary transformers supply the 380 V unit switchgear as a 100% back-up. The second supply is interlocked from the first, so that an operation without interruption shall be possible.

The CCPP plant features a high level of automation with plant start up, operation and shut down being carried out by the TELEPERM ME control and data acquisition system. For the control system the total plant is divided into following five functional areas: 1. 2.

4. 5.

Gas Turbines Heat Recovery Boilers Water/Steam Cycles Steam Turbine Auxiliary Plant

The I & C equipment associated with these functional areas is distributed throughout the plant and transmit the measured values and plant status information to local processing units contained within Power Control Centers. These PCC's are prefabricated units and enclosed in containers where also the plant related switchgear is arranged. The Central Control is located in the Control Room Building 15 UCA (CCR-3). Information transfer between the control room and the local plant is achieved via a duplicated data highway. Central redundant data acquisition and control processors are located in the control room building for alarm monitoring, logging and plant status display. The interface between plant and operator is located in the both central and local control rooms. From here, all plant control functions can be carried out during both normal and emergency situations. At Block-3, for the process automation of the CCPP, the TELEPERM ME process I & C system is used. Its functions are: acquisition and processing of process data, open and closed-loop control, calculation and optimizing as well as supervision, signaling, operation and monitoring of the process in interactive mode on the screen and using miniaturized control room equipment.

Start-up from Unit Coordination Program

The plant can be operated in a simple-cycle and a combined-cycle operation.

Simple-Cycle Operation
The procedure for startup of the gas turbine in simple-cycle operation is as follows:

Diverter damper upstream of the steam generator closed, bypass path open Starting of gas turbine, purging of the turbine through bypass stack during runup to ignition speed Ignition of the gas turbine burners Runup to rated speed and loading of the gas turbine

Combined-Cycle Operation
Prepared by: Fazal-ur-Rehman Babar GT 13, 14 & ST 15

Two procedures are possible for startup of the heat recovery steam generator (HRSG):

Startup of the gas turbine as a function of output load control Startup of the gas turbine as a function of exhaust temperature control

The gas turbine is started up as described in the simple-cycle operation, however, the gas turbine exhaust gas temperature is kept below < 350 C. After the purging process (for 1 min), gas turbine output is increased to rated power. The rated temperature is achieved at about 60% gas turbine output. Startup of the HRSG is performed by opening the diverter damper upstream of the steam generator and thus simultaneously closing the bypass path. In the case of gas turbine startup under temperature control, the bypass path remains closed after the steam generator has been purged. The gas turbine load is controlled at the permissible temperature transients for the thick-walled components of the steam generator, piping and steam turbine. For gas turbine startup under load control, the diverter damper is set at an intermediate position after the steam generator has been purged such that the cross-section of the line to the steam generator is opened by about 20%. After expulsion of the water and when the level in the drums stabilizes and the steam temperature is almost equal to the gas turbine exhaust gas temperature, the diverter is opened in stages. Whenever a temperature change in the HRSG permits, a defined time pulse is released to open the diverter damper a stage further. The main steam line is warmed up, in accordance with a specified mean warmup transient, for the leading item (strainer casing). Controlled warmup of the LP-steam line to the feedwater tank is not necessary owing to the reduced wall thickness. The steam turbine is started up under speed control. As soon as the generator is synchronized with the grid system, the valve lift, which is limited by the Turbine Stress Evaluator (TSE), is increased by the startup control until the turbine assumes the full steam mass flow, the turbine bypass station closes and the initial pressure controller is activated. The pressure in the LP-evaporator system is governed by the LPstartup station. If sufficient hot steam is extracted to the feedwater tank, the LP-startup station closes and lowers the response setpoint.

5.0Plant Design According to Weather Conditions

The HRSG / Steam Turbine plant are capable of utilizing the exhaust gas from the gas turbines when operating over full range of operating conditions up to base load according to Kot Addu site ambient temperatures from 1 C to 50 C (design temperature) and at relative humidity of up to 80 % (design ambient relative humidity for electrical and I & C equipment).
Prepared by: Fazal-ur-Rehman Babar GT 13, 14 & ST 15

The machines are designed according to the following performance data: Ambient Temperature Relative Humidity Atmospheric Pressure = 30C, = 60 % = 0.996 bar.

The electric output of Block-3 (GT-13, 14 & ST-15) is 406 MW (Net Power Output = 397 MW), 129 MW from each gas turbine and 148 MW from the steam turbine. The heat input amounts to 818 MJ/sec so that the overall net efficiency is 48.5 %.

Combined Cycle Components

Some of the components are described here;

1.0 The Gas Turbine

The first major component of the combined cycle power plant is the gas turbine. Gas Turbine is a machine which runs with the action of flue gases on its turbine blades. Flue gases are produced by burning the fuel. When gas turbine exhausts directly to the atmosphere, it is said to be operating in "open cycle" mode. When a gas turbine exhausts into a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) the resultant steam is used to operate a steam turbine, this operation is called combined cycle.

A model of gas turbine 13, 14 is shown. Unit 13, 14 gas turbines consist of a single body including 16 stage Compressor, 2 Combustion Chambers and 4 stage Turbine. The turbine rotor has two bearings one at the air inlet of compressor side and second in the turbine exhaust. The body is divided in various planes to facilitate inspection. Mechanical power generated in the turbine is used to drive both the compressor and the generator. The electric power is available at the generator terminals in 11KV. The gas turbine uses air as working fluid which is drawn in through filters and sound absorbers, it is compressed in the compressor up to 10 bar. Compressed air is directed into the combustion chambers. Fuel is added and burnt in the combustion chamber, and the resultant flue gas is heated up to approx. 1050 C for the turbine inlet. The hot gases are expanded to atmospheric pressure in the turbine and transfer their energy to the turbine blades, where its energy is used to drive the shaft. The compressor and turbine blades are arranged on a common shaft and connected to the generator via the intermediate shaft. The exhaust gases leave the turbine through the

GT 13, 14 & ST 15

exhaust diffuser for being discharged into the bypass stack or to the HRSG for combined cycle operation.

1.1 Main Components of a Gas Turbine

1.1.1Intake Air Filters
These provide clean, filtered and dust free air to the compressor inlet.

Air is drawn in and compressed when passing through rows of rotating blades and stationary vanes. At the end of the compressor, before reaching the combustion chamber, the air is compressed to about 10 bar and has been heated to about 300C by compression.

1.1.3Combustor / Combustion Chamber

The combustor or combustion chamber is the heart of the engine; here the combustible mixture of compressed air and fuel is burnt. The hot gas output temperature becomes 1000C to 1300C; its volume becomes more than doubled by the temperature rise where as pressure remains constant.

The turbine section converts the thermal and kinetic energy of the combustion gases into rotational mechanical energy. Gas turbines like steam turbines have three or four stages of rotating and stationary blades. However; because gas turbines work with lower initial inlet pressures, they have fewer stages and less change in blade height from inlet to exhaust. Turbines normally consist of combination of impulse and reaction types. The gas turbine also differs from the steam turbine in; (1) the type of blading material used (2) the lower ratio of blade length to wheel diameter (3) less number of turbine stages Flue gases flow to the turbine with a very high velocity v of about 80 m/s (288 km/hr). It means it has high kinetic energy mv . The kinetic energy of flue gases is converted to mechanical energy when flue gas is expanded in the stages of turbine transferring its energy to the turbine rotor. The volume of flue gases is increased by expansion and thus temperature is decreased and at the exhaust it is about 500 C.

The turbine parts which are mechanically stressed are at the same time subject to very high temperature, so that these parts are designed with special material and cooling paths are provided for cooling air to flow.

1.1.5Exhaust diffuser
It diverts the de-energized (but still hot) flue gases into the ambience to complete the cycle. It is fitted with filter and silencer.

2.0 Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG)

The HRSG is basically a heat exchanger composed of a series of economizer, evaporator and superheater sections. These sections are positioned from gas inlet to gas outlet to maximize heat recovery from the gas turbine exhaust gases. The heat recovered in the HRSG is used to supply steam to the steam turbine at the proper temperature and pressure. The exhaust gases temperature leaving turbines are in the range as given bellow: Unit No. 1& 2 3& 4 58 13 & 14 Exhaust temperature Steam flow rate 500 C to 550 C 205 Tons/hour on 220 Tons/hour on 550 C to 610 C 210 Tons/hour 480 C to 530 C 150 Tons/hour on 160 Tons/hour on 530 C to 550 C 203 Tons/hour on 200 Tons/hour on Gas FO Gas FO Gas FO

High temperature gas represents a source of heat energy, some of which can be recovered thus the output and the efficiency of a combined cycle power plant is increased. The function of a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) is to recover the waste heat available in these exhaust gases and transfer that waste heat to water and steam. The heat is used to generate steam at high pressure and high temperature. The steam is then used to generate additional power in a steam turbine driven generator. The HRSG provides a link between the gas turbine and the steam turbine in a combined cycle plant. Therefore, the HRSG is a key component in combined cycle efficiency.

2.1 Main Components of an HRSG

2.1.1 Diverter Damper
At outlet of the gas turbine, upstream the boiler, a diverter is provided which makes it possible to send the exhaust gas directly to the atmosphere, by means of a bypass stack or to heat the boiler by opening the path towards the HRSG. The diverter is provided with hydraulic actuators. The actuators have been sized to permit intermittent operation of the damper to a predetermined position, but not regulated control. The close position is with the blade closed to HRSG and the open to bypass stack. The open position is with the blade open to HRSG and the close to bypass stack. The diverter damper is actuated through the various modes of operation by an electrically controlled hydraulic system. This hydraulic system comprises an independent, self contained power unit connected electrically and hydraulically to the diverter blade. The power unit consists of a weather proof enclosure containing a system of two motor pump units, one control valve assembly, a hand pump system and 3 hydraulic accumulators.

2.1.2 Water & Steam Heaters

The water and steam are heated at different steps according to the flue gas temperature. These include HP Economizer, HP Evaporator, LP Evaporator and Superheater.

2.1.3 Drums
HP drum and LP Drum or LP separator tank are installed to separate steam from water.

2.1.4 Pumps
These pumps are installed for the circulation of water and they include HP Feedwater pumps or HP Evaporator recirculation pumps, LP Feedwater pumps or LP Evaporator recirculation pumps, HP Economizer recirculation pumps etc.

2.1.5 Soot Blowers

They clean soot deposits from the tubes on flue gas side of the Boiler.

3.0 Steam Turbine

The Steam Turbine is a power unit which produces power from a continuous action of steam on its turbine blades, the steam being delivered to the turbine at a high pressure and exhausted to the condenser at a low pressure. Steam turbine converts the heat energy of superheated highpressure steam, coming from the boiler or HRSG, into rotational mechanical energy. The conversion of energy in the turbine occurs in two steps. First, the heat energy in the steam is converted into kinetic energy of a steam jet by nozzles (stationary blades). Second, the steam jets blow on buckets or moving blades mounted on a rotor to produce a mechanical force and torque.

The mechanical energy of the steam turbine is then used to drive a generator to produce electrical energy. The steam turbine generator is, by itself, a very simple machine with few moving parts. It is not unusual for a steam turbine-generator to operate continuously for more than a year without shutdown.

3.1 Main Components of a Steam Turbine

3.1.1 Turbine

Prepared by: Fazal-ur-Rehman Babar

GT 13, 14 & ST 15


The turbine converts the thermal and kinetic energy of the steam into rotational mechanical energy. ST-15 Stage 1 Stage 2 has 26 stages of HP and 8+8 stages of LP turbine and their sealing steam system. There are two types of turbine blades, Impulse and Reaction types. Normally, turbine consists of combination of impulse and reaction types.

Turbine Principle
Steam enters the rotating channels with absolute velocity c with reference to the fixed parts. When magnitude and direction of both velocities are known we get the relative velocity w with reference to the rotating blades. Circumferential velocity u at rotating blade tip can be calculated by the difference of c and w.
c absolute velocity w velocity in rotating channel = relative velocity u circumferential velocity Indices 1 Inlet rotating wheel 2 Outlet rotating wheel U2 = Impulse Type Turbine C2 W2 U1 = C1 W1 Guide wheel Rotating wheel Guide wheel

Velocities in Steam Turbine Stages

The basic idea of an impulse turbine is that a jet of steam from a fixed nozzle pushes against the rotor blades and impels them forward. The velocity of the steam is about twice as fast as the velocity of the blades. Only turbines utilizing fixed nozzles are classified as impulse turbines.

Prepared by: Fazal-ur-Rehman Babar

GT 13, 14 & ST 15


Reaction Type Turbine

A reaction turbine utilizes a jet of steam that flows from a nozzle on the rotor. Actually, the steam is directed into the moving blades by fixed blades designed to expand the steam. The result is a small increase in velocity over that of the moving blades. These blades form a wall of moving nozzles that further expand the steam. The steam flow is partially reversed by the moving blades, producing reaction on the blades. Since the pressure drop is small across each row of nozzles (blades), the speed is comparatively low. So more rows of moving blades are needed in a reaction turbine than in an impulse turbine.

3.1.2 Condenser and Vacuum Pumps

It condenses steam when it finishes its work and exit from the turbine. Vacuum pump regularly runs to evacuate any air accumulation in the condenser.

3.1.3 Cooling Tower

This is provided to cool the close circulating water from the condenser. It removes the latent heat of steam and converts it into condensate.

3.1.4 Lube Oil system

It supplies lubrication and cooling for all bearings like compressor, turbine, generator and supplies oil to the hydraulic oil system, torque convertor and turning gear.

3.1.5 Generator
The generator is connected to the gas turbine. Generator converts the mechanical output power of the gas turbine into electricity. When rotor rotates in the stator, there is a relative motion between conductor and rotors magnetic field. Voltage is induced by this relative motion into the three coils of stator winding. When north and south poles of rotor magnetic field pass before a stator winding then alternating currents of sinusoidal (~) wave shape are produced. In this way three phase currents 132 KV are produced by the three phases of stator winding as shown in figure.

Prepared by: Fazal-ur-Rehman Babar

GT 13, 14 & ST 15


The generator is air cooled in closed circuit. Generator output is at 11KV; it is stepped up by main transformer to 132 KV or 220 KV and sent to WAPDA via transmission lines.

2.0Thermodynamic Cycles
2.1 Gas Turbine (Joule-Brayton) Cycle
The thermodynamic cycle of a gas turbine is referred to as the JouleBrayton Cycle (or simply Brayton Cycle). The four processes of the Brayton Cycle are represented on a temperature-entropy (T-s) diagram shown in figure. Entropy is a property of substances that describes the availability of energy to do work. The T-s diagram is useful in analyzing thermodynamic cycles because it reveals the amount of heat required to make a process occur in a cycle. If a process can be represented as a curve on the T-s diagram, the area under the curve is the amount of heat required to make that process occur.


Combustion Expansion (Turbine)

Four Processes of Gas Turbine

Compression A-B Combustion B-C Expansion EachRejection D-A process in Heat


Brayton Cycle T-S Diagram

C-D the Brayton Cycle can be drawn on the T-s diagram. The first process is the compression of Heat in the compressor air represented by the line A-B. As the air is compressed, its temperature and pressure increases and there is a corresponding increase in enthalpy. As work is done on the air, the air stores this energy in the form of temperature and pressure. The power (energy) to perform this work originates from the turbine, which is directly coupled to the gas turbine compressor through a common shaft.

The second process is the addition of heat to the cycle at a constant pressure by burning of fuel represented by the line B-C. The temperature of the gas that results from the combustion increases considerably from the temperature of the air at the compressor outlet. Normally air temperature at the compressor outlet is 300C and the flue gas temperature is increased up to 1000C or 1300C.
Prepared by: Fazal-ur-Rehman Babar GT 13, 14 & ST 15


The third process is the expansion and cooling of the gas as it passes through the turbine, is represented by the line C-D. Here, the energy of the hot pressurised gas is used to perform work. The final process in the Brayton cycle is the cooling of the hot gas that exhausts to the atmosphere represented by line D-A. The exhausted gas mixes with ambient air, thus decreasing in temperature. Amount of heat that is required to make Brayton cycle work is represented by the area under lines B-C. The area under the line D-A represents the fraction of heat that is rejected. The area between these two lines represents the heat that is converted to useful mechanical energy. The heat converted to useful mechanical energy is 20% to 25% of the total heat required to make the process work.

2.1.1Thermodynamics of Gas Turbine

The energy at the input is available as fuel (furnace oil or gas) and it represents chemical energy. At the output we have energy in the most valuable form as electrical energy. Electricity is easily transported, easily controlled and easily applied at all instances when energy is used. There are several steps when energy is converted from its chemical form to electrical form:

Generator loss (0.8 %)

Compressor Mechanical loss (0.5 %) Air Exhaust Heat Energy (61 %) Turbine mechanical loss (0.5 %)

Combustion Chamber Step 1: Chemical energy is converted radiation loss (2 %) STEP 1 to thermal energy (heat) in the form of a flow of hot "flue gases". Step 2: Heat energy is transformed to FUEL kinetic energy by increasing speed of flue gases in nozzles. Step 3: Flue gases act on rotor blades and rotate, in this way kinetic energy is converted to mechanical energy. Step 4: The mechanical energy is used to drive the generator rotor, and it is converted to electrical energy.

STEP 2 &3

Energy Conversion Processes : Chemical Energy Heat or Thermal Energy Kinetic Energy Mechanical Energy Electrical Energy Now we look at first two steps more closely.

2.1.2Cyclic Process
These first two steps are only possible as parts of a thermodynamic cyclic process because nature does not grant any gifts without being paid; i.e. we must come back to the initial conditions where we started. Such a cyclic process describes how the fluid changes its state during its flow through a given machine. State of the fluid can be

Prepared by: Fazal-ur-Rehman Babar

GT 13, 14 & ST 15


described by a couple of parameters which are inter-dependent. These parameters are: - Pressure - Temperature T - Entropy S P

We use these parameters to draw "T-S diagrams" which apply to the actual fluid. For our present considerations we can use the T-S diagram for air which is applicable for flue gas, too. In the range of cyclic processes we commonly use the laws for ideal gases which are valid here. By means of TS diagrams - cyclic processes can be made apparent - cyclic processes can be evaluated how efficient they are - we learn how the machine has to be designed in which a given cyclic process takes place. In the following we apply these three uses to our gas turbine process:

2.1.3Gas Turbine Cycle of GT 1,2 & 13,14

The ideal gas turbine process normally applied named "Joule-Brayton - Cycle" is defined by two isentropic and two isobaric changes of state.

It begins at ambient conditions and an Expansion isentropic compression of the fluid (air). It 800 (Turbine) means that the change of state of the Specific Power available fluid is made at constant entropy, i.e. free 600 at Coupling Flange of any friction and free of any heat transfer across the boundaries of the machine. At the end of this ideal 400 Evaluation of Energy 1 square is equivalent to compression, both pressure and 20 MW temperature are increased but entropy 200 remained the same. Now heat is added to 100 Exhaust the fluid by burning the fuel in the Ambient Conditions compressed fluid. Thus, entropy and 0 Entropy temperature are increased but pressure -100 7 8 kJ remained the same. Hereafter the flue kg K Ideal Joule Brayton Cycle gas is expanded during an isentropic change of pressure and temperature. The flue gas is now at ambient pressure again but at elevated entropy and elevated temperature. In order to complete the cyclic process the flue gases are blown into the atmosphere and the energy content is dissipated, i.e. wasted. This is the price we must pay for having converted the energy from a lower to a higher value.

Heat Input (Combustion)

The T-S diagram is handy for representing energy and heat per fluid mass unit. These values appear as areas; e.g. 1 square shown on the T-S diagram is equivalent to 20 MW. It means, that if we know the mass-flow we can easily calculate - the power available at the coupling flange - the heat to be put in Flue gas mass flow: Unit 1, 2 426 Kg/sec Unit 13, 14 471 Kg/sec Unit 3, 4 322 Kg/sec Unit 5-8 406 Kg/sec

2.2 The Steam-Water (Rankine) Cycle

The Rankine Cycle used in conventional steam power plants can be represented on a T-h diagram. As with the Brayton Cycle, each line segment corresponds to a process in the cycle. A simple Rankine Cycle consists of only four components; the boiler (often called a steam generator), a turbine, a condenser and a boiler feed pump. Boiler is shown with a superheater, thus the steam entering the turbine is above saturation temperature.

The first process in Rankine Cycle (Line 1-2) is the increase in pressure of condensate from condenser by the boiler feed pump. Increase in pressure occurs with a slight increase in enthalpy (h). The second Rankine Cycle process (Line 2-3) is the addition of heat to water entering the boiler. Within the boiler, the water is transformed from a liquid to steam (a gas). The generation of steam is assumed to occur at a constant pressure. Additional energy is added to steam as it passes through the superheater (Line 3-4). Steam is then expanded and cooled as it passes through the turbine as represented by Line 4-5. Here, the energy of steam is used to perform work. The last process in the Rankine Cycle is the condensation of steam that exhausts from the turbine, represented by line 5-1. During

condensation, considerable vaporization, is lost.







The heat required to make the Rankine Cycle work is determined by the area under the lines between points 2 to 4; and the heat lost from the cycle is under the line between points 5 and 1. The area between the lines represents the heat that is converted to useful mechanical energy. The useful mechanical energy is only about rd of the heat required to make the cycle work. The efficiency of conventional steam power plants is about 30% to 35%. Actual steam power plants are considerably more complex than the simple cycle shown in Figure, because components such as Condensate pump, Feedwater tank, Economizer, LP & HP Feedwater heaters and Air preheater are added to improve efficiency. Typically only 85% to 90% of the heat energy input is absorbed in Boilers. This means that the boiler is only 85% to 90% efficient. Additional auxiliary equipment, such as fans and soot blowers, use part of the power produced usually around 5%.

2.2.1Actual Steam - Water Cycle / T-s diagram

The T-s diagram (Fig 4.3) illustrates the thermodynamic conditions and parameters in the actual water- steam cycle. Clausius established entropy in mathematic formulas in order to determine transformability of heat energy. Later on Belpair found that principle of entropy can be presented by areas of transferable amounts of heat in the T-s diagram. If one follows the various stages of the water-steam cycle, they can be presented in the T-s diagram. The area below the curve depicts the supply or release of heat energy in order to reach a new condition. The temperature axis must then however be extended to the absolute "0 K" point. In calculations temperatures are stated in Kelvin, which means the origin in the diagram is 0 K (- 273.15 C). The region of wet steam can be easily recognized in the T-s diagram. The hill, the left margin of which equals x = 0, that is pure water, is remarkable. The right curve represents saturated steam ( x = 1). All points in between these margins depict wet steam with a certain share of water. One must be careful, because the diagram shows the specific entropy s in units of kJ/kg/K. So you should keep in your mind, that the shown values of entropy are good for 1 kg of the media at the given point. This T-s diagram shows the turbine cycle all over the Plant i.e. Steam Turbine and HRSG. It starts with the condenser outlet to the feedwater tank. The area underneath this line is the amount of heat brought to the cycle from the LP evaporator into the feedwater tank by the LP steam.

The area underneath the line feedwater tank to HP drum inlet shows (theoretically) the amount of heat drawn from the exhaust gases by the economizer. The HP evaporator draws the heat underneath of the horizontal line in between HP drum inlet and HP drum outlet. The superheating is done nearly at the same pressure, but up to higher temperature. The steam condition becomes far away from the saturated condition, so the end of the turbine gets better conditions concerning the arising of water. Due to the heat transfer for superheating the enthalpy will rise too, gives the turbine a higher "capacity of work". The arising heat underneath of the line "outlet superheater" to "condenser inlet" is the heat, Clausius was thinking of Conversion of heat energy into mechanical energy causes a rising of the entropy, which is sometimes explained as an arising of losses. These losses in that connection are losses due to "intermolecular friction", not losses to the environment. The amount of heat shown underneath the line "condenser inlet" to "condenser outlet" has to be given to the environment to condensate the steam of the turbine and to close the circuit. To calculate the real amount of heat, one has to multiply this value with the actual mass flow.

2.3 The Combined Cycle

Cycle Combined cycle is a power plant in ce Cycle which consists of a gas turbine, Boiler Heat and a Steam Turbine. In this cycle a Rejected gas turbine is connected to a steam turbine via a boiler. The steam turbine cycle makes use of much of the heat in the gas turbine exhaust gases. Thermodynamically, the combined cycle can be represented by joining the high temperature Brayton cycle with the moderate pressure and temperature Rankine cycle. An Combined Cycle T-h Diagram example of a combined cycle showing the Brayton cycle (gas turbine) and the Rankine cycle (steam turbine) on a T-h diagram is shown in Figure.

Gas Turbine

Steam Turbin

The area enclosed by the Rankine cycle is within the area that represents the heat rejected from the Brayton cycle. Thus, the Rankine cycle area represents the heat energy that is converted to useful mechanical energy that would other-wise be rejected to the atmosphere. A large portion of the heat lost from the Brayton cycle is used in the Rankine cycle. A much greater fraction of the heat added to the cycle is actually converted to useful mechanical energy in the combined cycle than either the Brayton cycle or the Rankine cycle alone. The Rankine cycle parameters (pressure and temperature) are selected to match the temperature of the available gas turbine exhaust gases. Usually, the pressure and temperature used in the Rankine cycle portion of the combined cycle plant are much lower
Prepared by: Fazal-ur-Rehman Babar GT 13, 14 & ST 15


than those used in conventional Rankine cycle plants. The lower pressure and temperature are necessary because the gas turbine exhaust gas, while very hot, is not nearly as hot as the flue gas entering the convection pass of a conventional fuel fired boiler. The challenge in joining the Brayton and Rankine cycles in a combined cycle plant is the degree of integration needed to maximize efficiency at an economic cost. The simple combined cycle can consist of a single gas turbine, HRSG, steam turbine, condenser and auxiliary systems. In addition, if the environmental regulations require, an emissions reduction system can be directly integrated within the HRSG.

Advantages of a Gas Turbine

1. Its operation is simple, can be started quickly and can be put on load in very short time. For these reasons, gas turbine power plants are able to meet peak - load demand, such as at evening peak. They require lower capital investment and occupy less space. The starting cost of the plant is lower than equivalent steam power plant. The time required for their construction is short. The plant does not require heavy foundation and a large building. The maintenance of the plant is easier and maintenance cost is lower. The lubrication of the plant is easy. In this plant lubrication is needed mainly in compressor bearing, turbine bearing and bearing of auxiliary equipment. The gas turbine power plant requires less water as compared to condensing steam power plant. Gas Turbine auxiliary consumption is very less and there are very little standby losses in the gas turbines as compared to a Steam Turbine. There is a great simplification of the gas turbine power plant over the steam turbine power plant due to less auxiliaries and absence of boilers with their feed water evaporator and condensing system.

Disadvantages of a Gas Turbine

1. Major part of the work developed in the turbine, about 60%, is used to drive the compressor. The remainder of the turbine work is available to produce power by driving a generator. Therefore network out put of the plant is lower. For it starting purpose starting motor is required.

Since the temperature of the parts in the combustion becomes too high, so services conditions become complicated even at moderates pressures. Similarly, the first stage turbine blades face high temperature flue gases, therefore these are made with special material and these are coated with high temperature material. On open cycle its thermal efficiency is low and it is about 34%. However in combined cycle mode the overall thermal efficiency is can be even higher than 45%.

Cv - specific heat at constant volume, Quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of the mass unit of the gas, one degree centigrade, at constant volume. j. Cp - specific heat at constant pressure, Quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of the mass unit of the gas, one degree centigrade, at constant pressure. Note: the ratio Cp/Cv generally is labeled . Besides, it is important to note that in the processes that constitute the thermodynamic cycle of a gas turbine, Cp can be considered as constant. k. Latent Heat It is the heat used to change the state of a substance e.g. change of state from water to steam at the same temperature in HP evaporator. Similarly it is the heat rejected (to cooling tower) in condenser when turbine exhaust steam at 40 C is converted to water (condensate) at the same temperature. l.
