Improving power plant flexibility

Tailoring stress calculators to specific plant needs

Coal-fired and combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plants need to operate more flexibly, but they were not designed for this. In order to deal with this flexibility requirement, among other things, stress calculators have to be able to meet the needs of each individual power plant. Laborelec analyzed different stress calculators and discovered that there is a lot of potential to adjust them. In this way, the flexibility of power plants can be increased without jeopardizing plant safety.
