The use of optimisation modelling for energy recovery investment decision making
Investment decision making is a common occurrence for any engineering company. These investments include any possibility from relative inexpensive to extremely costly equipment. When power generation turbine procurements ...
A methodology to determine best-suited waiting-time periods for turbine start-up under fluctuating resources
— It is not uncommon for engineering process plants to comprise energy recovery. When power generation takes place under such circumstances, the nature of interlinked processes may result in fluctuating resource availability. ...
Utilising fluctuating off-gases more efficiently in a power co-generation environment through less flaring
Common engineering practice is to generate steam from burnable off-gases, in boiler houses, where excess steam is allocated for power generation after plant requirements are met. If the quantities or chemical composition ...
Linear model of a closed three-shaft Brayton cycle
A linear model of a closed three-shaft Brayton cycle is developed. The model is intended to give an understanding of the dominant dynamic behavior in a nuclear power system that utilizes a closed three-shaft Brayton cycle. ...
Implementing an optimisation model for turbine investment selection under fluctuating steam productions
Engineering plants typically have a variety of interlinked production chains, where process flows are dependent on upstream or downstream events. Raw material feeds may fluctuate over time, resulting in fluctuating off-gas ...
