Direct use of natural gas, and a national energy policy with new regulations, coupled with efforts to save crude oil with the help of shale gas and the efficient combined cycle is the need of the hour.
NEM has secured the order from Arabian Bemco Contracting Co. Ltd. in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for 40 unfired dual pressure Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSGs) for the PP10 Combined Cycle Power Plant project.
Hydrogen fuel blending system for GE 7FA gas turbines
In response to a request from the Dow Chemical Company, GE developed a fuel blending system allowing a hydrogen / natural gas fuel blend to be burned in a 7FA Gas Turbine with the DLN2.6 combustion system.
In the previous part of this series, we saw how energy efficiencies of aircraft jet engines jumped, and how significant advancements were made further. In this article, we will discuss how the combined cycles can be optimized for increased efficiency and maximum power output.
How power demand changes with the use of electric vehicles
Every 10,000 miles driven in an electric vehicle (EV) equates to the amount of power needed by one home in the USA for a year, said Donald Karner, President and CEO of electric vehicle (EV) vendor ECOtality North America, at this year’s PowerGen conference.
