EQUIPMENT SHOWCASE

Boilers, Burners, Combustion
New this year: POWER is featuring a different power-related equipment category in selected issues. This month boilers, burners, and combustion will be the focus. If your company would like to submit a piece of equipment to be considered for free inclusion in the section, send a 150-word write-up to editor@powermag.com with details about the company and product, include a high-resolution image and the words “June Equipment Showcase” in the subject line.

COVER Focus: PRBCUG Plant of the Year

Comanche Generating Station, Pueblo, Colorado

With a capacity of 1,410 MW, Comanche is the largest power plant in Colorado. Unit 3, which entered commercial operation in 2010, was the state’s first advanced, highly efficient, supercritical coal unit. Xcel Energy operates the plant, but Savage Services is responsible for coal handling. While two individual entities, the companies have common goals, allowing a seamless operation.

SPECIAL REPORT

Power in Africa
According to some estimates, two out of three people in sub-Saharan Africa lack access to electricity. This special report evaluates the situation and explores how demand is evolving in the region. Supply challenges will be examined and interesting opportunities identified.

FEATURES

Power Plant Efficiency: A Key to Profitable Performance
Building a plant is only the first step for a power company, running it efficiently and consistently is the long-term challenge. For fossil plants, a major efficiency goal is heat rate improvement. The fewer Btus it takes to generate a kWh of power, the less fuel used and the more money that flows to the bottom line.

Power Generators Look to Weather the Storm of Extreme Events
There’s a reason utilities hire meteorologists, accurate forecasts are critical to managing generation in their service territories. As extreme weather seemingly occurs more often, having plans in place to foster resiliency and maintain reliability are paramount.

Building the Case for Power System Hardening
Purse-string holders are pretty easily swayed to approve funding to upgrade transmission and distribution systems following major events like Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Irene. However, it is becoming increasingly obvious that utilities continue to be challenged to plan and mitigate for the adverse impacts of smaller, yet impactful, weather events.

Reengineering Coal Power Plants
Various schemes are underway in Europe as nations use existing coal-fired power plants to generate electricity without coal as the feedstock. Some changes are fairly easy and inexpensive, while others require more detailed engineering analysis.

Extending Plant Life Through Heat Recovery Steam Generator Retrofits
Years of cyclic operation can take a toll on heat recovery steam generators. Various time-related failures can result. For instance, acid dewpoint corrosion is a mechanism that can result in economizer tube leaks. Upgrading tubes to a more-corrosion-resistant type, increasing tube thicknesses, or adding enamel-based coatings could be appropriate solutions.

Improving Plant Efficiency with Pump Performance and Condition Monitoring Power plants of all types have many pumps performing a variety of important services. If a critical pumping function is lost, a unit will often have to shut down. Pumps equipped with sensors to monitor condition and performance can allow problems to be detected sooner so appropriate action can be taken prior to failure.

Single-Shaft Combined Cycle Option Delivers Flexibility in Limited Space
A single-shaft design—where the gas turbine, steam turbine, and generator are all arranged on a single shaft—offers a unique solution to match certain operators’ needs. A synchronous self-shifting (SSS) clutch is installed between the generator and the steam turbine as part of the basic design.
