How to operate the natural gas steam generator

Steam Generation Suggested Actions

A boiler fired with natural gas costing $8.00/MMBtu produces 450-pounds-per square-inch-gauge (psig) saturated steam and is supplied with 230°F feedwater. Using values from the tables, calculate the fuel cost of producing steam.

How does gas-fired power work? | ENGIE

The hot gases generated by burning natural gas power the gas turbine. The gases are still hot enough to generate steam in a heat recovery boiler which is then used in a steam turbine. The combination of these two thermodynamic cycles increases plant efficiency to in excess of 50%, which is much higher than the 35% to 40% achieved by traditional plants.

Outline of Thermal Power Generation [KEPCO]

Steam power generation Fuels such as heavy oil, LNG (liquefied natural gas) and coal are burned inside a boiler to generate steam at high temperature and high pressure. This steam is used to rotate the impeller of the steam turbine. This drives the power generators

Natural Gas Fired Boilers

Whereas natural gas boilers normally operate at 1-1.5% O2 (about 7% excess air). Steam and exit gas temperatures Upon switching from coal to natural gas, heat transfer characteristics of a boiler will be impacted.

Steam generators are fired using LP (liquified petroleum), NG (natural gas), or electricity. LP units burn quickly and efficiently, but require tanks to store the fuel. NG units burn efficiently as well, but your utility provider may not be able to offer access to natural gas lines.
