  3. 3. What is super critical power plant???The power plant whichoperates above the criticalcondition is a ”SUPERCRITICAL POWER PLANT”
  4. 4. Definition of criticalCondition CRITICAL CONDITION IS THERMODYNAMIC EXPRESSION DESCRIBING THE STATE OF A SUBSTANCE BEYOND WHICH THERE IS NO CLEAR DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE LIQUID AND GASEOUS PHASE.
  5. 5. WHY ADVANCED SUPERCRITICAL?• Efficiency of the Rankine Cycleincreases with increasing Turbine inletTemperature and Pressure• Cycle efficiency of typical sub-criticalplant is 38% whereas today’ssupercritical technology increases thisto around 45-47%
  6. 6. Sub-Critical vs Super CriticalDescription Sub Critical Super CriticalFull Load Pressure <190 atm >240 atmFlow in Water wall 2-Phase 1-PhaseCycle efficiency Base + 2 - 3 % ApproxFuel saving Base +8 - 10 % ApproxBoiler weight Base + 10 %Stages of reheat 1 2 Preferred

  8. 8. Design Types NATURAL CONTROLLED STEAM DRUM TO SUPERHEATERECON. CIRC. PUMP FURNACE WALLS ONCE THROUGH SEPARATOR • Natural circulation - well suited for < 175 kg/cm2 ECON. • Controlled circulation - optimum solution for reliable high-pressure subcritical operation • Once-through technologyCIRC.PUMP • Suitable for sub and supercritical cycles DISTRIB. HEADER
  9. 9. Drum type boiler Natural Circulation Boiler Circulation through water walls by thermo-siphon effect Controlled Circulation Boiler At higher operating pressures (just below critical pressure levels), thermo-siphon effect supplemented by pumps to ensure safety of furnace wall tubes. Super Critical Boilers
  10. 10. Drum type boiler Steam generation essentially takes place in furnace water walls Fixed evaporation end point - the drum Steam -water separation takes place in the drum Separated water mixed with incoming feed water and fed back to water wall lower drum by means of boiler water circulating pumps (BWCPs). Super Critical Boilers
  11. 11. Once Through Boiler-Concept Once through system Super Critical Boilers
  12. 12. Once Through Boiler Once -through forced flow through all sections of boiler (economizer, water walls & super heater) Feed pump provides the driving head Suitable for sub critical & super critical pressures Super Critical Boilers
  13. 13. Once-thru BoilerMajor differences from Drum type boiler : Evaporator system Low load circulation system Separator
  14. 14. Once - thru Boiler Low load circulation system : The excess flow over the once-thru flow separated in separator . Recirculated back to the boiler directly by the dedicated circulating pump.
  15. 15. LOW LOAD SYSTEM WITH CIRCIRCULATION PUMP
  16. 16. Once -thru BoilerSeparator : Separates steam and water during the circulating mode operation Runs dry in once through flow mode. Smaller in size compared to drum in a drum type boiler
  17. 17. Once -through BoilerAdvantages :- Better suited for sliding pressure operation Steam temperature can be maintained over wider load range under sliding pressure Conservation of fuel resources. Shorter start up time Improvement in Efficiency
  18. 18. conclusionSuper critical power plants are theefficient plants to produce greaterout put although it has somedrawbacks ….
