Book Description :

Co-firing biomass with fossil fuels in existing power plants is an attractive option for significantly increasing renewable energy resource utilization and reducing CO2 emissions. This chapter mainly discusses three direct co-firing technologies: pulverized-fuel (PF) boilers, fluidized-bed combustion (FBC) systems, and grate-firing systems, which are employed in about 50%, 40%, and 10% of all the co-firing plants, respectively. Their basic principles, process technologies, advantages, and limitations are presented, followed by a brief comparison of these technologies when applied to biomass co-firing. This chapter also briefly introduces indirect co-firing and parallel co-firing and their application status.

Book Description :

Biomass co-firing with coal exhibits great potential for large scale utilization of biomass energy in the near future. In the present work, energy and exergy analyses are carried out for a co-firing based power generation system to investigate the impacts of biomass cofiring on system performance and gaseous emissions of CO2, NOx, and SOx. The power generation system considered is a typical pulverized coal-fired steam cycle system, while four biomass fuels (rice husk, pine sawdust, chicken litter, and refuse derived fuel) and two coals (bituminous coal and lignite) are chosen for the analysis. System performance is evaluated in terms of important performance parameters for different combinations of fuel at different co-firing conditions and for the two cases considered. The results indicate that plant energy and exergy efficiencies decrease with increase of biomass proportion in the fuel mixture. The extent of decrease in energy and exergy efficiencies depends on specific properties of the chosen biomass types. The results also show that the increased fraction of biomass significantly reduces the net CO2 emissions for all types of selected biomass. However, gross CO2 emissions increase for all blends except bituminous coal/refuse derived fuel blend, lignite/chicken litter blend and lignite/refuse derived fuel blend. The reduction in NOx emissions depends on the nitrogen content of the biomass fuel. Likewise, the decrease in SOx emissions depends on the sulphur content of the biomass fuel. The most appropriate biomass in terms of NOx and SOx reduction is sawdust because of its negligible nitrogen and sulphur contents.

Book Description :

Biomass fuels have long been accepted as useful renewable energy sources, especially in mitigating greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions. Fossil fuel-based power plants make up over 30% of the GHG emissions in Alberta, Canada. Displacement of fossil fuel-based power through biomass co-firing has been proposed as a near-term option to reduce these emissions. In this research, co-firing of three biomass feedstocks (i.e., whole forest, agricultural residues and forest residues) at varying proportions with coal as well as with natural gas in existing plants was studied to investigate different co-firing technologies. Whole forest biomass refers to live or dead trees (spruce and mixed hardwood) not considered merchantable for pulp and timber production; agricultural residues are straws obtained as the by-product of threshing crops such as wheat, barley, and flax; and forest residues refer to the limbs and tops of the trees left on the roadside to rot after logging operations by pulp and timber companies. Data-intensive models were developed to carry out detailed techno-economic and environmental assessments to comparatively evaluate sixty co-firing scenarios involving different levels of the biomass feedstock co-fired with coal in existing 500 MW subcritical pulverized coal (PC) plants and with natural gas in existing 500 MW natural gas combined cycle (NGCC) plants. Minimum electricity production costs were determined for the co-fired plants for the same three biomass feedstocks and base fuels. Environmental assessments, from the point of harvesting to delivering electricity to the customers, was evaluated and compared to the various co-fired configurations to determine the most economically viable and environmental friendly options of biomass co-firing configuration for western Canada. The results obtained from these analyses shows that the fully paid-off coal-fired power plant co-fired with forest residues is the most attractive option and has levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) ranging from $53.12 to $54.50/MWh; and CO2 abatement costs ranging from $27.41 to $31.15/tCO2. Similarly, the LCOE and CO2 abatement costs for whole forest chips range from $54.68 to $56.41/MWh and $35.60 to $41.78/tCO2 respectively. When straw is co-fired with coal in a fully paid-off plant, the LCOE and CO2 abatement costs range from $54.62 to $57.35/MWh and $35.07 to $38.48/tCO2 respectively. This is of high interest considering the likely increase of the carbon levy to about $30/tCO2 in the Province of Alberta by 2017.

Book Description :

Co-firing tests were conducted in a pilot-scale reactor at Sandia National Laboratories and in a boiler at the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar factory at Puunene, Hawaii. Combustion tests were performed in the Sandia Multi-Fuel Combustor using Australian coal, whole fiber cane including tops and leaves processed at three different levels (milled only, milled and leached, and milled followed by leaching and subsequent milling), and fiber cane stripped of its tops and leaves and heavily processed through subsequent milling, leaching, and milling cycles. Testing was performed for pure fuels and for biomass co-firing with the coal at levels of 30% and 70% by mass. The laboratory tests revealed the following information: (1) The biomass fuels convert their native nitrogen into NO more efficiently than coal because of higher volatile content and more reactive nitrogen complexes. (2) Adding coal to whole fiber cane to reduce its tendency to form deposits should not adversely affect NO emissions. (3) Stripped cane does not offer a NO advantage over whole cane when co-fired with coal. During the field test, Sandia measured 0 2, C02, CO, SO2, and NO concentrations in the stack and gas velocities near the superheater. Gas concentrations and velocities fluctuated more during biomass co-firing than during coal combustion. The mean 0 2 concentration was lower and the mean C02 concentration was higher during biomass co-firing than during coal combustion. When normalized to a constant exhaust 0 2 concentration, mean CO concentration was higher and mean NO concentration was lower for biomass co-firing than for coal. The SO2 concentration tracked the use of Bunker C fuel oil. When normalized by the amount of boiler energy input, the amounts of NO and SO2 formed were lower during biomass co-firing than during coal combustion. The difference between NOx trends in the lab and in the field are most likely a result of less effective heat and mass transfer in the boiler. Particles were sampled near the superheater tube using an impaction probe and were analyzed using scanning electron microscopy. Particle loading appeared higher for biomass co-firing than for coal combustion, especially for the smaller particle diameters. Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) was used to detect silicon, aluminum, titanium, iron, calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium concentrations near the superheater. LIBS provided an abundant amount of real-time information. The major constituents of the fuel ash (silicon and aluminum) were also the major measured inorganic constituents of the combustion products. The combustion products were enriched in sodium relative to the fuel ash during all tests, and they were enriched in potassium for the biomass co-firing tests. Alkali metals are enriched because compounds containing these elements are more readily releasable into the combustion products than refractory components that remain in large particles such as silicon, aluminum, and titanium. Relative to the measured deposit chemistry, the combustion flows were enriched in iron, sodium, and potassium, constituents that are known to form fumes laden with fine particles and/or vapors. The LIBS results yield insight into the deposition mechanism: Impaction of larger particles dominates over fume deposition. The present application of LIBS reveals its potential to provide real-time field information on the deposition propensity of different fuels and the effects of different fuels and boiler operating conditions.

Book Description :

The application of advanced technologies employing combustion/co-firing of coal andbiomass is seen as a promising approach to minimising the environmental impact andreducing CO2 emissions of heat/power production. The existing uncertainties in thecombustion behaviour of such fuel mixes and the release of alkali metals with otherelements during the combustion (or co-firing) of many bio-fuels are some of the mainissues that are hindering its application. The potential presence of high levels of alkalichlorides and low levels of sulfates in the deposits formed on heat exchanger can causeenhanced corrosion and/or limit the heat transfer between the hot combustion gases andthe water/steam system within the process plant. This work has investigated the detailed gas compositions and deposition characteristicsof the combusted gas streams produced from fossil and biomass fuels pure and/or blendin a pilot-scale combustors (PF and FBC) at Cranfield University. Combustion gasanalysis were obtained on-line by a high resolution multi-component Fourier TransformInfra-Red (FTIR) gas analyser and deposits samples were collected from the flue gasusing air-cooled probes with surface temperatures of about 500, 600, 700oC andanalysed using SEM-EDX and XRD techniques. Fuels included several biomass fuels(cereal co-product (CCP) straw, miscanthus (pulverised), oil seed rape straw (againststored pellets), miscanthus (pellets), willow, fast pyrolysis bio-oil) and twocommercially-used coals (El-cerrejon and Daw Mill). The results of the experimentalstudies have been compared with thermodynamic equilibrium predictions. High combustion efficiency was maintained throughout the range of fuel mixes. TheSO2 and HCl levels were low in pure biomass combustion and increased as the biomassfraction of the fuel decreased when co-fired with these coals. However, the NOx outputremained stable except for Miscanthus:Daw Mill mixtures and OSR stored pelletcombustion. The deposition flux was highest on the coolest probes for each fuel. Thelowest deposition fluxes were found for the combustion of either fast pyrolysis bio-oilor coppiced willow. There is evidence of significant differences deposition fluxesbetween El-cerrejon coal and Daw Mill coal mixed with CCP and/or miscanthus. Thepresence of chlorine was identified in deposits produced from combustion of purebiomass or high biomass mixes. The lowest levels found here in fast pyrolysis bio-oilcombustion and only detected at higher shares (? 80 %) of biomass co-fired with DawMill coal, whereas, mixed biomass with El-cerrejon coal produced Cl in deposits at alow % biomass share. The application of thermodynamic equilibrium modelling has been found to be usefultool for providing a qualitative understanding of elements present and/or control by hotgas in modern combustion processes.

Book Description :

There are many successful commercial co-firing installations, however various constraints can be encountered, especially in direct co-firing mode (which is the most common among co-firing systems), and with tendency to increase biomass/coal ratio, and use low quality biomass. These constraints can include handling, storage, milling and feeding problems, deposit formation (slagging and fouling), agglomeration, corrosion, erosion, and ash utilization issues. Most of the co-firing challenges originate from biomass properties. The problems associated with co-firing systems can be addressed by various measures. One of them is application of biomass pre-treatment, which is an interesting option, as by modifying biomass properties, it addresses problems at their source. The aim of this work is to provide an overview of possible constraints that can be encountered in systems cofiring coal with biomass, and identify biomass pre-treatment options with potential to address them.

Book Description :

Biomass co-firing technology with coal is an alternative means to achieving Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) that could also extend the life of coal-fired power plants. This approach is particularly attractive in regions where there is a considerable potential supply of biomass and where a high share of electricity generation capacity comes from coal plants. An RPS that allows for biomass co-firing could provide an incentive for some plants that otherwise would not co-fire. In order to properly assess the likely response of coal units in a region requires taking into consideration competition among coal plants and other generation sources. Further, such an analysis would require estimating biomass local availability, which is heterogeneous across different areas, and could drive up its price, making co-firing not economic feasible for some plants. In this thesis, I present a holistic framework allowing for endogenous adoption decisions of whether a plant chooses to co-fire or not. This framework is composed of a detailed power system that determines hourly output at each power plant while accounting for real world operational constraints (Unit Commitment Model) and a game-theoretic model that solves for a stable equilibrium among power plants competing for biomass. As a case study, I apply this framework to the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO), where many states have an existing RPS and where there is a high potential to obtain corn residue as a biomass. I simulate a co-firing rate under a broad range of carbon prices, which act as a RPS that includes biomass, and numerically solve for the Nash Equilibrium; i.e., none of the competing coal plants would unilaterally change their decisions whether to co-fire with biomass.

Book Description :

The world is becoming increasingly electrified. For the foreseeable future, coal will continue to be the dominant fuel used for electric power production. The low cost and abundance of coal is one of the primary reasons for this. Electric power transmission, a process in the delivery of electricity to consumers, is the bulk transfer of electrical power. Typically, power transmission is between the power plant and a substation near a populated area. Electricity distribution is the delivery from the substation to the consumers. Due to the large amount of power involved, transmission normally takes place at high voltage (110 kV or above). Electricity is usually transmitted over long distance through overhead power transmission lines. Underground power transmission is used only in densely populated areas due to its high cost of installation and maintenance, and because the high reactive power gain produces large charging currents and difficulties in voltage management. A power transmission system is sometimes referred to colloquially as a "grid"; however, for reasons of economy, the network is rarely a true grid. Redundant paths and lines are provided so that power can be routed from any power plant to any load centre, through a variety of routes, based on the economics of the transmission path and the cost of power. Much analysis is done by transmission companies to determine the maximum reliable capacity of each line, which, due to system stability considerations, may be less than the physical or thermal limit of the line. Deregulation of electricity companies in many countries has led to renewed interest in reliable economic design of transmission networks. This new book presents leading-edge research on electric power and its generation, transmission and efficiency.
