CCS technology could capture up to 90% of carbon dioxide from emissions and This paper presents the levelised cost of electricity of CCGT with CCS and. Prior to delivery to the CCGT power block, the fuel gas is heated to 78°C as an efficiency measure, using waste heat in the form of low pressure steam generated. Tom will be providing an overview of Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) is part of the team engaged in developing the Peterhead CCS Project – one of two .

The application of CCS technology to CCGT plant

The Ccyt of project starting cfs to 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. To account for the time-value of money, the whole costs and benefits are adjusted for inflation and discounted rate. 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.

On the contrary, post- Figure 1. Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. And the rest of greenhouse gases need to be paid the carbon cost, so the increasing carbon price leads to the increase of LCOE. However, renewable energy is difficult to meet the increasing energy demand and keep lights on. First, carbon dioxide will be separated and captured either by before the combustion process by pre-combustion capture, or after the combustion process by post-combustion capture or oxy-combustion capture [4].

Delivering Our Low Carbon Future. 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. The presence of nitrogen ccs the fuel mix helps to limit the generation of nitrous oxide emissions NOx in the gas turbine.


The overall pressure ratio of the GT is therefore similar to that of the reference plant without need for nozzle modifications. 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 ccft efficiency of the overall plant; however, the development of components for high hydrogen combustion may minimise such an effect.

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]. To prevent the carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere, the process of CCS consists of three steps: This limitation of renewable could be solved by coal and gas-fired power station fitted with carbon capture dcgt CCS technology.

International Energy Agency, Par-is. Process air for the reforming process is extracted from the gas turbine compressor. The rest of the fuel is sent to the gas turbine. 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.

EPE Most popular papers. It denotes the level of risk to invest a project, riskier projects generally have higher hurdle rate [13]. The hydrogen fuel gas for the gas turbine is supplied at a molar ratio of about Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. The acceptability of low carbon technologies is decided by the market principle the lowest generation cost will win the biggest market share [2]. The estimate of fuel price from to is on the basis of DECC [19] fossil fuel price assumptions report.

If the LCOE of CCGT with CCS could be reduced to an appropriate price level, the UK government could 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.

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

A relatively low LCOE means that electricity is being produced at a low cost. Currently, there are 8 operational commercial-scale CCS plants in U. The LCOE equation is an evaluation of the life-cycle energy cost and life-cycle energy production [11]. According to Figure 1. The waste heat IP intermediate pressure steam generator is a major element of the reforming ccgy heat recovery system.

According to the International Energy Agency, more than CCS projects must be set up and be running by worldwide [6]. References [ 1 ] CCC. Principle The LCOE is an important measurement for comparing the unit costs of different electricity technologies to guide discussion and decision-making [10].

Energy and Power Engineering9 This steam export has resulted in a larger STG and condenser than would otherwise be required. On the contrary, post. The total electricity produced in is TWh, and the shares of electricity generation based on primary fuel source are Arup and Leigh [Fisher [16] [17] cds cost and ccgg 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 And renewable energy would make a ccz contribution to the low-carbon economy.
