Title: GridAPPS-D Conceptual Design v1.0

Abstract

The purpose of this document is to provide a conceptual design of the distribution system application development platform being developed for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) Program by the Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium project GM0063. The platform will be referred to as GridAPPS-D. This document provides a high level, conceptual view of the platform and provides related background and contextual information. This document is intended to both educate readers about the technical work of the project and to serve as a point of reference for the project team. The document will be updated as the project progresses.

  • Progress is reported in developing a conceptual design for a commercial size (560 MW) complete power generating station, incorporating an atmospheric fluidized combustion boiler. This design is to be developed as a variation of a base which is an established plant design with conventional pulverized coal suspension fired boiler with associated facilities. The activities of this second quarter have concerned the design of the corresponding AFB combustion power plant incorporating the individual AFB designs of the two boiler manufacturers, Babcock and Wilcox and Foster Wheeler.
  • The conceptual design of a commercial size (560 MW), complete power generating station incorporating an atmospheric fluidized-bed boiler was developed for two parallel cases presenting the boiler designs of two major boiler manufacturers. These were preceded by the presentation of the basis for comparison, which was also a 560 MW unit, that incorporated a conventional pulverizer coal suspension fired boiler with associated facilities including, particularly, a wet limestone flue gas scrubber. This report accounts for the completion progress of the individual tasks that constituted the project. All of the deliverable material items were issued by the end of the contract.more » They, rather than this report, contain the technical substance of the work.« less
  • The conceptual design of a commercial size (560 MW), complete power generating station incorporating an atmospheric fluidized bed boiler was developed for two parallel cases presenting the boiler designs of two major boiler manufacturers. These were preceded by the presentation of the basis for comparison, which was also a 560 MW unit, which incorporated a conventional pulverizer coal suspension fired boiler with associated facilities including, particularly, a wet limestone flue gas scrubber. Technical notes were prepared or were in preparation on: 570 MWe base plant definition and general design criteria; AFB state-of-the-art; 570 MWe AFB plant definition; evaluation of merit;more » and development of a mathematical model of AFB control functions and analysis of load following capability. Eleven electric utility companies were contacted in the course of the year to apprise them of the AFB project and to engage their interest in review of the progress of the project as it developed. Oral and visual presentations were made to engineers of each company and a copy of the Base Plant Reference dated June 1977 was given to them at the presentation or soon thereafter. Later in the year, a second volume titled Comparison Plant Exhibits, Incorporating Manufacturers Unique AFB Boiler Design and Ancillary Systems, dated December 1977, was distributed for comparison to the base.« less
  • A conceptual design has been undertaken for a commercial size (560 MW) complete power generating station, incorporating an atmospheric fluidized combustion boiler. It is to be developed as a variation of a base which is an established plant design with conventional pulverized coal suspension fired boiler with associated facilities. These include a flue gas scrubbing system and on-site provisions for disposal of scrubber sludge and fuel ash. The conceptual design with AFB combustion boiler will differ from the base only in respects dictated by the AFB application. The conventional base plant design and cost estimate and performance description, culminating inmore » the base plant report, was the main focus of activities during this first quarter. The start of the individual boiler manufacturers' participation was equally important although only accomplished at the beginning of the third month. To the extent practical, Stone and Webster design work, preparatory to receiving fluidized bed boiler manufacturers' drawings, was started in anticipation of information expected in the next quarter. Specialized supportive work included the preparation of the current state-of-the-art of fluidized bed combustion report, the first issue of which is scheduled for release at the start of next quarter. Its purpose is to serve as reference for individual discussions of basic concepts with each boiler manufacturer. The objective of the discussion is to assure the best possibility of development of successful main and ancillary systems of the fluidized bed combustion steam generators.« less
  • In this document, preliminary conceptual designs are presented for ten sample beamlines for the 6 GeV Light Source. These beamlines will accommodate investigations in solid-state physics, materials science, materials technology, chemical technology, and biological and medical sciences. In future, the designs will be altered to include new developments in x-ray optics and hardware technologies. The research areas addressed by the samples beamlines are as follows: Topography and Radiography/Tomography (section 2); Inelastic Scattering with Ultrahigh Energy Resolution (Section 3); Surface and Bulk Studies Using High Momentum Resolution (Section 4); Inelastic Scattering from Charge and Spin (Section 5); Advanced X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopymore » Studies (Section 6); Small Angle X-Ray Scattering Studies (Section 7); General Purpose Scattering for Materials Studies (Section 8); Multiple-Energy Anomalous-Dispersion Studies of Proteins (Section 9); Protein Crystallography (Section 10); Time- and Space-resolved X-Ray Spectroscopy (Section 11); Medical Diagnostic Facility (Section 12); and Transuranium Research Facility (Section 13). The computer systems to be used on the beamlines are also discussed in Section 14 of this document.« less
