A relatively low LCOE means that electricity is being produced at a low cost. IP steam at a pressure of about 49barg is produced by heat recovery from the synthesis gas produced in the ATR.

Currently, there are 8 operational commercial-scale CCS plants in U. On the contrary, post- Figure 1. This steam export has resulted ccw a larger STG and condenser than would otherwise be required.

References [ 1 ] CCC. This limitation of renewable could be solved by coal and gas-fired power station fitted with carbon capture storage CCS technology. According to Figure 1. Energy and Power Engineering9 Skip to main content. The LCOE of project starting from to Discounted rate, also known as the hurdle rate, is the minimum Internal Rate of Return IRR that a company expects to earn when investing in a project.

The LCOE is an important measurement for comparing the unit costs of different electricity technologies to guide discussion and decision-making [10]. Typically when firing hydrogen in a gas turbine, the turbine nozzle area must be increased from that of the reference plant, to accommodate the increased volumetric flowrate of fuel which is required due to the lower heat content relative to natural gas and to maintain the design pressure ratios of the machine.

The estimate of fuel price from to is on the basis of DECC [19] fossil fuel price assumptions report. The overall pressure ratio of the GT is therefore similar to that of the reference plant without need for nozzle modifications. The total costs of power station include:. Arup and Leigh [Fisher [16] [17] provide cost and technical assumptions for the renewable technologies and non-renewable technologies individually; NERA Economic Consulting [18] provide a report on hurdle rates for projects starting development from EPE Most popular papers.


A, Norway and Algeria [9]. The paper is not in the journal. If the LCOE of CCGT with CCS could be reduced to an appropriate price level, the UK government could use CCS technology to maintain secure and low carbon electricity as more intermittent renewables and inflexible nuclear come onto the grid, and does not worry about the suddenly increased household electricity bills.

In addition, cooling water is derived from a common cooling water system. And renewable energy would make a huge contribution to the low-carbon economy. First, carbon dioxide will be separated and captured either by before the combustion process by pre-combustion capture, or after the combustion process by post-combustion capture or oxy-combustion capture [4]. And the rest of greenhouse gases need to be paid the carbon cost, so the increasing carbon price leads to the increase of LCOE.

Forecasting the Impact of CCGT-CCS on the UK’s Electricity Market by LCOE

Principle The LCOE is an important measurement for comparing the unit costs of different electricity technologies to guide discussion and decision-making [10]. Cite this paper Luan, T. To achieve the greenhouse gases reduction target, CCS technology will play as an important role to a low-carbon future, which allows continued use of fossil fuels whilst limiting global temperature rises. But, the CCS technology has much potential to reduce its LCOE, such as investing in large CO 2 storage clusters with shared pipelines to decrease the operation cost; re-use of existing oil and gas infrastructure to reduce the construction cost; developing a subsidiary supply business to increase the revenue of power plant.

CCS will play a vital role in efforts to limit the global warming. The presence of nitrogen in the fuel mix helps to limit the generation of nitrous oxide emissions NOx in the gas turbine. To prevent the ccgt dioxide from entering the atmosphere, the process of CCS consists of three steps: The LCOE represents the present value of the unit cost of electricity over the lifetime of the powerstation.


The LCOE calculation begins with Equation 1expressing the equality between the present value of the sum of revenues on the left-hand side and the present value of the sum of costs on the right-hand side. Some excess steam is also used for heat exchange within the reforming process. Although wind and solar PV technology are become more and more mature and cheaper, CCS as a developing technology has the potential to be one of the most cost-ef- fective technologies [8].

On the contrary, post.

According to the International Energy Agency, more than CCS projects must be set up and be running by worldwide [6]. Conflicts of Interest The authors declare no conflicts of interest. The waste heat IP intermediate pressure steam generator ccgf a major element of the reforming process heat recovery system.

The application of CCS technology to CCGT plant

To evaluate the total cost of electricity, the ccgt of costs are ccgg to a net present value using the time value of money by cds cash flow model. Process air for the reforming process is extracted from the gas turbine compressor. It denotes the level of risk to invest a project, riskier projects generally have higher hurdle rate [13]. The boiler feed water supplied to the heat recovery system is obtained from the CCGT a larger boiler feed water system has been allowed for.

The hydrogen fuel gas for the gas turbine is supplied at a molar ratio of about However, since the configuration of Scenario 5 is such that the GT compressor is sized to also supply compressed air for use in the reforming process, the increase in volumetric flow of fuel into the GT is offset by the equal amount of additional air extracted for the process.
