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 results of the study indicate: The design and construction of prestressed concrete pressure vessels (PCPVs) was found to be generally within the present state of knowledge. Subscale testing should be performed to confirm some design judgements. The use of PCPVs can reduce the FCI requirements. To illustrate, substitution of a single PCPV for as many as 18 steel vessels might reduce the FCI by approximately 70 percent, amounting to as much as $300 million. Replacement of a single steel vessel with a PCPV can reduce the FCI by approximately 10 percent. Thus, there is a definite economic incentive tomore » carry further the development of PCPVs to demonstrate their technical feasibility and economic viability. PCPVs offer an alternative for construction of large scale coal conversion plants. Improved vessel safety performance is expected because of the benign failure characteristics of PCPVs. PCPVs have the potential to be operational in a shorter schedule than steel vessels. At the time of this writing, supply projections indicate that the materials of construction for PCPVs can be readily available in the U.S. while the capacity to fabricate and install large numbers of large heavy walled steel pressure vessels was found to be currently limited by the number of suppliers and availability of fabrication facilities. A three-part program designed to further develop PCPVs for still higher pressure operations has been developed.« less
  • This report presents a conceptual design and economic evaluation for a commercial coal conversion complex to mine coal and convert it into a product slate consisting of substitute natural gas (SNG), LPGs, unleaded gasoline, low sulfur distillate fuel oil, premium grade coke, and approximately 1,000 MW of electrical power for sale. ERDA assigned the name Project POGO to the design; this is an acronym for Power-Oil-Gas-Other. It represents the third Parsons design using SRC-II technology. This design incorporates procedures for elimination of the troublesome filtration step, produces products that have been refined to be directly marketable, and also produces significantmore » electrical power for sale. A primary objective was to design an improved configuration for the electrical power generation section using combined-cycle facilities; also to maximize the effective use of energy potentials between the power plant, the coal mine, and the process section of the coal refinery. The intent is that such a system properly designed and operated would provide improved efficiency and economics. The design presented is conceptual. As such, it incorporates certain potentially attractive operations, such as pressurized flash pyrolysis and pressurized entrained slagging two-stage gasifiers, which have not yet been fully operated on a pilot plant scale. The design is intended to show the potential performances and economics for the configuration defined; also to define additional development work required to convert the conceptual design to commercial reality.« less
  • A conceptual process flow diagram was developed for a modular, transportable wastewater treatment pilot plant which incorporates the following areas: feed pretreatment and storage, solvent extraction for phenol recovery, acid gas and ammonia stripping, biological treatment, and a cooling tower-heat exchange loop to study water reuse. This loop contains reverse osmosis (RO) and lime-soda softening as sidestream processes for removal of hardness and dissolved solids. The units can be operated in various sequences or singly as the treatment study demands. With the flowsheet as a basis, a cost estimate was made for construction of the modules at the Oak Ridgemore » National Laboratory (ORNL). An estimated cost of $594,000 was determined for the purchase of major equipment, labor for construction, and miscellaneous equipment and instrumentation.« less

  • Results are described of a conceptual design and economic evaluation for a conceptual Fischer-Tropsch plant responsive to U.S. demands and economic requirements. A primary objective of this conceptual design is to define the characteristics and projected economics of a commercial coal mining and conversion complex to be constructed and operated in the 1980's and 1990's. Key target characteristics of the design include: large size, simplicity, and reliability; energy efficiency; where justified, incorporation of advanced concepts now in development to achieve stated objectives; and definition of incentives for further development work required to convert the concepts to reality. Fischer-Tropsch technology providesmore » potential for broad product flexibility. A range of product spectrums can be produced by proper selection of catalyst, reactor configuration, and operating conditions such as feed gas composition, temperature, pressure, and space velocity. It is important to recognize that the design presented here represents only one of a large number that can be developed to exploit Fischer-Tropsch technology.« less
