The continued quest for higher thermal efficiencies has resulted in innovative modifications to conventional power plants. These used to function on either a pure gas or vapour power cycle and individually produced power. The large quantity of heat generated is dumped into the atmosphere or large water bodies which act as heat sinks.
In Singapore, more than 80% of the power generated is from natural gas-fired combined cycle power plants due to their proven superior thermal efficiency and relatively cleaner fuel.
This module is tailored in the backdrop of the above and aims to provide comprehensive fundamentals of Combined Heat and Power Plants targeted at industrial professionals operating under Singapore regulatory requirements.
Participants will be equipped with the understanding of:
- CHP Basics
- Thermal Concepts of CHP
- Gas Power Cycle (Brayton Cycle)
- Vapour Power Cycles
- Power Equipment and Systems
- Cogeneration systems
- The Feasibility Study and Regulatory Issues
- Industrial Site Visit (Trigeneration Plant)
