COVER FOCUS: 2018 Industry Forecast

Hope in the New Year: Opportunities Abound for the Power Industry
There are challenges facing the power industry in 2018, but there are also lots of exciting solutions available. Renewable energy and gas-fired generation will continue to grow, but changes in federal and state policies could also provide needed support for the coal and nuclear power sectors. Distributed generation, battery storage, and microgrids will all play a role in the future. Industry insiders share their perspective on what offers the most promise in the coming year.

SPECIAL REPORT

Powering India
India’s power sector is evolving. Sustained economic growth continues to drive electricity demand, and the government’s focus on attaining “power for all” has led to large increases in capacity, which stood at more than 330 GW in May 2017. This overview will look at what it takes to power the country with the world’s second-largest population.

FEATURES

Advances in Gas Turbines
Competition is fierce in the gas turbine market. Ansaldo Energia, GE, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, and Siemens are all among the players. To remain in the game, companies are constantly working to improve efficiency and reliability. We’ll see what new technology is already available and what could be coming down the pike.

Redefining Power Plant Flexibility
Effectively combining and integrating diverse technology and capabilities may be the most important key to a reliable power grid. Siemens’ SIESTART is a combination of two existing and successful technologies: a rechargeable battery and a gas turbine. The union results in an integrated system that complements weather-dependent renewable generation and enables the plant to react instantaneously.

Drones in the Power Industry
More and more power plants are using drones for maintenance and operations tasks. Business cases that have been used to justify drone programs will be reviewed, as will innovative new technology that utilities could benefit from.

What Is the Future of Independent Power?
Merchant markets for independent power producers (IPPs) in the U.S. are unfavorable, and many IPPs have slumping profits—even big losses—as they ponder where to go in the months and years ahead.

Signs of Aging in Old Boilers
Boilers age from their initial operation at startup to replacement at the end of useful life. Not all components grow old together. The degradation process is affected by exposure to high temperatures, which means superheater and reheater sections are most susceptible to degradation from creep and thermal fatigue.

Modernize Gas Turbine Controls
By modernizing old or obsolete automation systems, power producers can more efficiently manage their assets to help improve their bottom line. However, modernization involves more than simply migrating from an old legacy system to its modern equivalent. It requires rethinking applications and upgrading multiple technologies.

Evaluating Ruggedized Servers and Routers for the Network’s Edge
The power industry has begun to realize the value of moving networking equipment, such as servers and routers, out to the edge of the network. However, these devices need to be self-sufficient and rugged enough to survive extreme elements. This article takes a look at edge network applications in the energy industry, and offers tips and guidance on what to look for when selecting and evaluating such equipment.
