Improving operational flexibility by regulating extraction steam of high-pressure heaters on a 660 MW supercritical coal-fired power plant: A dynamic simulation
Abstract The operational flexibility of a thermal power plant has played an essential and promising role in accommodating the increment of variability in the supply and demand sides in China. The rapid activation of thermal storage in entire coal-fired power plant lies at the heart for the strategy. Understanding the thermodynamic characteristics of the power unit in the transient process quantitatively remains a challenge. In this study, dynamic simulations of an entire 660 MW supercritical coal-fired power plant were conducted via GSE software, and the models were validated in the steady state and transient processes. Then, five different measures were introduced to regulate the extraction steam of high-pressure heaters for operational flexibility. The dynamic characteristics of the main thermodynamic parameters and output power were described and compared. Moreover, the operational flexibility of these measures was discussed. It turns out that: among the five measures, the change degrees of pressure, flowrate, and temperature in main devices increase with the increment in the number of throttled valves and/or the degree of feedwater bypass. The feedwater temperature at steady state reduces by 94.6 °C at most, and the maximum temperature change rate of metal slabs in HP heaters is −44.6 °C min −1 . The dynamic process for output power under different measures has two different ramp stages, namely, a rapid stage and a slow stage. Furthermore, compared with other measures, 100% throttling extraction steam of #1, #2, and #3 HP heaters has the best operational flexibility, that is, the maximum average power ramp rate in a minute, power capacity, and energy capacity are 6.19% of rate power per minute, 48.40 MW, 5.58 MW h, respectively. The average power ramp rate, power capacity and energy capacity increase with the increment in the number of throttled valves and/or the degree of feedwater bypass. This work is expected to provide a detailed reference on the use of turbine thermal storage to improve the operational flexibility of coal-fired power plants. Highlights Dynamic models of a 660 MW supercritical coal-fired power plant are developed. Five measures of regulating extraction steam of high-pressure heaters are analyzed. Dynamic responses of main thermodynamic parameters and output power are described. The best strategy of operational flexibility on coal-fired power plant is achieved.
