The paper is not in the journal. The boiler feed water supplied to the heat recovery system is obtained from the CCGT a larger boiler feed water system has been allowed for.

References [ 1 ] CCC. A relatively low LCOE means that electricity is being produced at a low cost. The required concentration of N 2 is achieved csc varying the amount of process air sent to the ATR. EPE Most popular papers.

The LCOE equation is an evaluation of the life-cycle energy cost and life-cycle energy production [11]. Skip to main content.

Arup and Leigh cxs [16] [17] provide cost and technical assumptions for the renewable technologies and non-renewable technologies individually; NERA Economic Consulting [18] provide a report on hurdle rates for projects starting development from However, renewable energy is difficult to meet the increasing energy demand and keep lights on. The LCOE represents the present value of the unit cost of electricity over the lifetime of the powerstation.

The application of CCS technology to CCGT plant

In the UK electricity system, gas and coal- fired power station with CCS is an unavoidable option in order to meet the increasing energy demand and keep lights cds whilst minimizing the environmental damage [7]. And renewable energy would make a huge contribution to the low-carbon economy. Process air for the reforming process is extracted from the gas turbine compressor. IP steam at a pressure of about 49barg is produced by heat recovery from the synthesis gas produced in the ATR. The presence of nitrogen in the fuel mix helps to limit the generation of nitrous oxide emissions NOx in the gas turbine.


The waste heat IP intermediate pressure steam generator is a major element of the reforming process heat recovery system.

Forecasting the Impact of CCGT-CCS on the UK’s Electricity Market by LCOE

Cite this paper Luan, T. The LCOE is an important measurement for comparing the unit costs of different electricity technologies to guide discussion and decision-making [10]. Discounted rate, also known as the hurdle rate, is the minimum Internal Rate of Return IRR that a company expects to earn when investing in a project.

LCOE of Wind and solar PV technologies is decreasing due to the reduction of construction cost and increment of average load factor. This steam export has resulted in a vcs STG and condenser than would otherwise be required. A, Norway and Algeria [9]. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.

Conflicts of Interest The authors declare no conflicts of interest. According to Figure 1. It denotes the level of risk to invest a project, riskier projects generally have higher hurdle rate [13]. To evaluate the total cost of electricity, the streams of costs are converted to a net present value using the time value of money by discounted cash flow model.

A de-rating of the standard GT inlet temperature that has been modelled may be required in practice for H 2 firing due to the greater heat transfer to the blades, and this would result in a slight reduction in efficiency of the overall plant; however, the development of components for high hydrogen combustion may minimise such an effect.


The total costs of power station include: The acceptability of low carbon technologies is decided by the market principle the lowest generation cost will win the biggest market share [2].

Currently, there are 8 operational commercial-scale CCS plants in U. Although wind and solar PV technology are become more and more mature and cheaper, CCS as a developing technology has the potential to be one of the most cost-ef- fective technologies [8]. However, since the configuration of Scenario 5 is such that the GT compressor is sized to also supply compressed air for use in the reforming process, the increase in volumetric flow of fuel into the GT is offset by the equal amount of additional air extracted for the process.

The rest of the fuel is sent to the gas turbine.

The LCOE of pre-combustion technology is the highest amongand respectively. Principle The LCOE is an important measurement for comparing the unit costs of different electricity technologies to guide discussion and decision-making [10].

Some excess steam is also used for heat exchange within the reforming process. Moreover, oxyfuel combustion technology has the trend to be the cheapest CCS technology.

To achieve the greenhouse gases reduction target, CCS technology will play as an important role to a low-carbon future, which allows continued use of fossil fuels whilst limiting global temperature rises.

The total electricity produced in is TWh, and the shares of electricity generation based on primary fuel source are This limitation of renewable could be solved by coal and gas-fired power station fitted fcs carbon capture storage CCS technology.
