HRSGs Generate More Than Excitement

Posted September 10, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Combined-cycle natural gas plants are emerging as a new pillar of power generation as they re-use waste heat to produce more electricity, reports Engineering360.com. The technology creates additional electricity from heat exiting gas turbines that is then routed through heat recovery steam generators (HRSG). However, occasional problems can occur with HRSGs such as water hammer damage if valve's actuate prematurely, if spray controls have been incorrectly set, or if condensate drain lines were inadequately designed.
