Steam Generator Efficiency - Power Engineering

2007/6/1 · The heat input required by the boiler to produce the required steam is only 1,149.1 Btu/lbm (1,474.1 – 325.0), as the feedwater temperature is much warmer. Thus, the efficiency of this system is

Electricity Generation using Steam Turbines

Note: This only includes the conversion of the heat energy in the steam to mechanical energy on the turbine shaft. It does not include the efficiency loss in the combustion chamber and boiler inconverting the chemical energy of the fuel to heat energy in the steam nor does it include the efficiency losses incurred in the generator if the turbine is used to generate electricity.

Energy Transfer and Conversion Methods

A steam generator uses a bar-through, forced flow design to convert incoming water into steam during a single pass through a water coil. As water passes through the coil, heat is transferred from the hot gases, turning the water into steam. Steam drums are not used in the generator design, where the boiler steam has a dissipation zone from the
