QUESTION ONE 25 MARKS
A power station works at the critical state of pressure and temperature, has
an installed rated capacity of 400 MW. The ambient temperature in the
boiler house is 31 oC, air humidity is 0.0204 kg/kg dry air, velocity of wind
around the boiler =3 m/s and the ratio of bottom ash to fly ash =90:10.
Assume barometer reading is 760 mm of mercury. Percentage composition
of coal fuel input to the power station is taken as: C=88%, H2=4.3%,
N2=0.7%, O2=4%, S=1%, Ash=2%
Calculate
I. The gross calorific value of the fuel.
solution
CVH= [4.18/100][8080 C% + 34500 (H%-O%/8)+ 2220S%]
= [4.18/100][8080*8 + 34500 (4.3-4/8)+ 2220*1]
= 35294.24kJ/kg
CVL = CVH mw*4.18*588.76
= 35294.24 (0.043x18/2)*4.18*588.76
= 34341.83 kJ/kg =GCV
II. The minimum air/fuel ratio.

## Ash=0.02 (a/f) min= 2.6601x100/23= 11.57 Rg= 0.223637

Minimum mass of air= [2.66066x100/23] =11.57 kga/kgf
(A/f)min = 11.57 kga/kgf

## III. If 25% excess air is supplied compute the percentage composition by

volume of the dry flue gases. Compute the gas constant of the flue
gases.
solution

Product of combustion
CO2 0.243535 =23.4%
O2 0.050204 =5.02%
N2 0.241904 =24.19%
H2O 0.029209 =2.92%
SO2 0.001510 =0.151%
Rg = 0.223637= 0.223637 kJ/kgK

IV. If a chain stoker is used to burn this fuel having grate width 5 m find
the grate length. You may assume any reasonable with justification.
Draw the chain grate stoker used showing dimension calculated.
solution
Consider the overall efficiency is being=33%=1/3
Thus =400MW/Qf= 1/3
Qf = 3x400MW =1200 MW=CVLxmf=34341.83xmf
mf = 1200x1000/(34341.83)= 34.94281kg/s= 1174078 kg/h

## Astoker=mfxCVL/HA = 1174078x34341.83/(15x105x4.18)= 643.0622 m2

Lstoker = Astoker/W=643.0622 /5=128.6124m about 130 m

## V. The steam produced from this boiler is used to run a Regenerative

steam power cycle. Assume cycle with suitable assumption for
number of feed water heaters. Calculate: performance on a) overall
cycle efficiency, b) specific steam and c) specific fuel consumption.
Solution
At Tcritical =374.14 oC, Pcritical =220.9 bar:
h1= 2138.2 kJ/kg, T1= 374.14 oC , P1 =220.9 bar
Assume the economizer temperature rise = 40 oC of range (30 to 50 oC)
TfB= 374.14 40 = 334.14 oC
Pcondenser= 0.07 bar, Tf, condenser=39.024 oC, hcondenser=163.32 kJ/kg

## Temperature rise in the feed water heaters = 334.14 39.024

=295.116oC
Number of feed water heaters = 295.116/50 = 5.90232 = 6

## Heat Balance of FWHs:

Assume sixth FWH is open feed water heater
(1-ma)(cp*T9) +ma ha=cpT10
ma= 4.18*49.186/(2063.5-4.18*274.792)= 0.224729

## The fifth FWH Heat balance:

mb*(hb cp*T9) = (1-ma)*cp*(T9 T8)
mb=(1-ma)*cp*(T9 T8)/ (hb cp*T9)
= (1-0.0545)*4.18*(49.186)/ (2060 4.18*274.792) = 0.174226
mc=(1-ma-mb)*cp*(T8 T7)/ (hc cp*T8)
=(1-0.0479-0.21)*4.18*(49.186)/ (1975.8 4.18x225.606)

## QUESTION THREE 25 MARKS

Consider a combined reheat and regenerative cycle utilizing steam as the
working fluid. The net power output of the turbine is 400MW. Steam enters
the high-pressure turbine at 8 MPa, 550oC, and is extracted for purpose of
feed-water heating in closed heater at 1.2 MPa. The remainder of the steam
is reheated at this pressure to 550oC and fed to the low-pressure turbine.
Steam is extracted from the low-pressure turbine at 0.4 MPa for feed-water
heating in an open heater. The condenser pressure is 10 kPa. The condensate
from the closed heater is throttled into the open heater. The isentropic
efficiencies of high and low pressure turbines are 90% and 85%
respectively, and the pump isentropic efficiency is 80%.
I. Draw a line diagram of the unit and show the state points on a T-s
and h-s diagrams.
II. What is the steam flow rate to the high-pressure turbine?
III. What power motor is required to drive each of the pumps?
IV. If there is a 10oC rise in the temperature of the cooling water, what
is the rate of flow of cooling water through the condenser?
V. If the velocity of the steam flowing from the turbine to the
condenser is limited to a maximum of 120 m/s. What is the
diameter of this connecting pipe?

## A combined-cycle unit combines the Rankine (steam turbine) and Brayton

(gas turbine) thermodynamic cycles by using heat recovery boilers to
capture the energy in the gas turbine exhaust gases for steam production to
supply a steam turbine as shown in the Figure "Combined-Cycle
Cogeneration Unit". The Process steam can be also provided for industrial
purposes for 20% of steam produced. Take Tamb=25 oC, relative air
humidity, =50%, maximum temperature after the combustion chamber =
1100 K, and pressure ratio of the compressor = 30:1. Assume reasonable
assumption with justification to design the combined cycle shown for each
pressure and temperature and mass flow rate of steam per kg of circulating
air in the compressor. Calculate: a) the thermal efficiency and b) SFC if the
fuel Calorific value is 6x104kJ/kg.
