Title: Conceptual design of an AFBC electric power generating plant. Final report. Volume I. Executive summary

Abstract

Economic analyses were conducted to determine the mid-1978 generation costs and resulting cost of electricity (COE) for a base case AFBC plant, incorporating all the applicable and economically justifiable improvements resulting from the design study programs, and a comparable, base case, pulverized coal-fired (PCF) plant utilizing a FGD system. In addition, economic sensitivity analyses were conducted in order to determine the COE for AFBC and PCF plant configurations corresponding to a plant extension and a boiler conversion of an existing oil-fired plant. Additional economic sensitivity analyses considered the effect of varying the SO/sub 2/ emission level on base case AFBC and PCF plant economics and the effect of varying the superficial fluidizing velocity on AFBC base case plant economics. All AFBC plant economic analyses are based on CE's modified design, which is presented in Appendix A of Volume III of this report. This modified design includes an improved main bed cyclone, with a particulate collection efficiency of 95% and a corresponding carbon collection efficiency of 99% (an increase from the 90% particulate and 90% carbon collection efficiencies selected in the previous design), and confirmation of the optimum high temperature steam in bed tube configuration, the 12 ft/sec superficial fluidizing velocity,more » and the uniformity of the feed splitter flow distribution.« less
