Economic Efficiency of a Power Unit Adapted to Cogeneration



This chapter presents a number of alternatives concerning economic analysis of power unit with the rated capacity of 370 MW operating in cogeneration for case of feeding heaters from A2 and A3 extractions of the low-pressure section of the steam turbine and LP--IP crossover pipe. The analysis applies the results of thermodynamic calculations presented in Chap. 6 and the methodology of economic analysis from Chap. 2.
