EQUIPMENT SHOWCASE

Diesel and Gas Generators
New this year: POWER is featuring a different power-related equipment category in selected issues. This month Diesel and Gas Generators 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 “April Equipment Showcase” in the subject line.

COVER Focus: Combined Heat and Power

Gaining Steam: Combined Heat and Power

There are increasing schemes in Europe to use marginally profitable gas-fired power plants to also generate heat for cities, and for good reason. Lausward Power Plant’s Fortuna Unit—POWER’s 2016 Plant of the Year—achieves about 85% efficiency when operated in cogeneration mode serving Düsseldorf’s district heating. The European Union is making a concerted effort to develop new CHP plants, but there are challenges as older, coal-fired units that provide the same services are phased out. 

Williamson College of the Trades Energy Island: Time-Honored Innovation

Williamson provides an exceptional opportunity for hands-on training within its own “Energy Island.” Among the technologies in use is a combined heat and power (CHP) system employing two Skinner steam turbines for electric power generation with a portion of the turbine exhaust used for steam distribution to several c

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.

Disaster Preparedness: A New Generation of Transformer Technology
Large power transformers, though critical to the nation’s power grid, face a number of challenges that make them one of the most vulnerable components on the nation’s power grid, susceptible to a number of threats, including geomagnetic disturbances and electromagnetic pulses. Many large power transformers are also approaching or exceeding their design lives. A number of private and public entities have been working to address these vulnerabilities, including development of new components, software, and flexible designs.

Reciprocating Engines: Reliable Power That’s There When You Need It
The growth of renewable power sources, continued low prices for natural gas, and technological advancements have pushed the use of reciprocating engines for reliable power generation. The engines are a popular choice for utility-scale power projects.

Critical for Nuclear Power but in Short Supply: Lithium-7
Lithium-7 is the only non-radioactive isotope chemically qualified to control the pH of coolant water in pressurized water reactors in the U.S. and other Western countries. However, only two suppliers produce the isotope. A malfunction at a Chinese production plant in 2014 showed reliance on that limited supply can cause critical shortages. Is the nuclear industry prepared to deal with another supply disruption?

Boiler Designs for Improved Efficiency
Competition in the power industry is fierce. If a plant doesn’t produce power at the lowest possible cost, it can end up sitting idle while other facilities supply the load. Many experts suggest the best way to keep a plant competitive is through improved efficiency. This article will focus on advanced designs and retrofit possibilities that could help increase efficiency and open new opportunities.

Innovative Fire-Fighting Technology Improves Equipment, Personnel Safety
A hybrid fire protection system has the ability to discharge a cloud of hybrid media into protected spaces to extinguish fires without the use of dangerous chemicals. The hybrid cloud is based on cyclonic distribution of both nitrogen and tiny water particles, introducing a better solution for fire suppression in power generation facilities.

Operator Qualification and Training for the Power Industry
Skill levels generally differ between plant operator shifts. Further, these differences often cause divides among the shifts that result in unequal divisions of responsibility. Comprehensive, performance-based training and qualification programs can close the skill gap, ensuring high-level performance across every shift at a plant.
