COVER Focus: Operations & Maintenance

Using Data Analytics to Improve Operations and Maintenance
Power plants are challenged to generate value from their data, but this can be a tedious and slow process, with uncertain outcome. Use cases are presented, demonstrating how data analytic solutions can put innovation in the hands of process engineers and experts for rapid and useful insights.
 
Automation Improves Workforce Utilization
A growing list of power plants are automating workforce scheduling to better forecast crew availability, report on worker status, and respond to emergent work. Automation efforts at plants in Missouri, Florida, Arizona, and Texas are offered to detail the benefits.

FEATURES

Demand for Gas from Power Sector Will Remain Strong
A deep freeze across much of the country sent demand for natural gas soaring earlier this year, and analysts who spoke with POWER forecast demand will continue an upward trend thanks to a cold winter, a warm summer, and a strong economy that will keep gas-fired plants humming.
 
What’s on the Horizon for Nuclear Waste Disposal?
At the end of 2017, 78,800 metric tons of spent fuel was stored at U.S. nuclear power plants, where it continues to accumulate at a rate of about 2,000 metric tons per year, with no resolution in sight. This article examines the long road this critical nuclear waste disposal issue has traveled and offers a look at what’s on the horizon.
 
Managing Ash at Waste-to-Energy Facilities
Reconfiguring fly ash and bottom ash handling systems can provide benefits for waste-to-energy plants. In some cases, improvements can increase metal reclamation revenue, optimize beneficial reuse of bottom ash, and decrease ash disposal expense.
 
Reliability, Resiliency, and Renewables – Rebuilding Power in the Caribbean
The devastating hurricanes of 2017 left millions of island residents in the dark. But the use of microgrids, along with a push toward more solar, wind, battery storage, and distributed energy systems, is part of the effort to make storm-prone areas less vulnerable to major weather events.
 
Design and Care of Reverse Osmosis Systems
For plants originally built using only ion exchange to treat makeup water, adding reverse osmosis can reduce chemical regeneration requirements by a factor of 20 or more. Designing and optimizing a system requires a good understanding of the local water analysis and equipment capabilities.
 
Coal Power Plant Torrefied Biomass Test Burn: A Study in Success
The ability of a coal power plant to accommodate significant changes in fuel quality is often limited by many constraints. When faced with a challenging goal to test torrefied biomass fuel at their Boardman Power Plant, Portland General Electric employed a comprehensive strategy to manage risks through planning and teamwork.
 
Jones Act Implications for Development of U.S. Offshore Wind Farms
The Jones Act requires that all goods transported by water between U.S. ports be carried on U.S.-flag ships, constructed in the U.S., owned by U.S. citizens, and crewed by U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents. However, the offshore wind sector has evolved and matured overseas. This article looks at how that affects development and what can be done.
