There is no such thing as Turbine Heat Rate. There is only Cycle Heat Rate! Period. What is heat load calculation?

Good now lets' continue with a answering your question with a little bit of modication. How do I calculate flow rate in heat transfer?

Firstly, what is Heat Rate?? How do you calculate the quantity of heat?

Any measurable parameter which has "Rate" as a suxed or prexed word indicates the Is gas turbine efficiency low, very low, high or very
change in parameters w.r.t. time. Heat rate is similar. It means the amount of heat input high?
over a given period of time (usually per hour) to produce a unit of Power output.
What is the heat index and how is it calculated?
In Industry it is dened in terms of amount of energy input (kilo-calories or kilo-joules) to
get a unit of Power output (in kilowatt-hour, energy term).

Heat Rate was earlier the premise of Utility Power Generators but nowadays plays a very
important role for industries using Captive Power (CPP's) because it indicates how
eciently is the CPP being run. Higher value indicates ineciency.

Due to renewed and intense focus on industrial economies impact on the environment
(global warming), the short term eects of pollutants on the general health of local
population due to excessive dependence on Coal-based Power Plants) and also the
depletion of resources it has become important that not only the Utility Power Plants
(focusses on Power generation only) but also the CPP's (cement, sugar, steel, other
process steam-usage industries, where process steam is primary & Power secondary)
focus on running the cycle eciently at varying load usage. This usually is the focus of
Energy Auditing done by the governmental organisations.

So what is Cycle Heat Rate

It is the cycle eciency. Like mathematically say the Input/Output.

Heat Input usually is measured at the Boiler Inlet to the Boiler Outlet. In casual terms it is
the indirect heat received by Coal.

Heat Output is the energy produced by the Output of Turbine usually measured in kW over
a period of same time. Power x Time is Energy btw :P

So as you get it HEAT RATE is Energy spent to get Power. Less the energy spent for
producing given Power or More the Power produced for same energy input indicates
optimum usage of resources or ecient operation. Heat Rate as a comparison measurement
(as is usually with all investment-related things), indicates how ecient the Power plant is
for the given investement and components used.

Study of Heat Rate in details is the basis of many Phd theses. So to go in depth will give you
so many details w.r.t. Component eectiveness, Financial aspects that this answer would
not be able to accommodate.

Here we generally rates are dened with respect to net power output from the power plant. What is turbine heat rate?
