U.S. electric utility AES Southland is ready to install the world’s largest lithium battery system at its Alamitos Power Center in Long Beach, California, in an effort to provide backup peaking power. The battery will have capacity to deliver 400…
Together with the industry partners Alstom and Rolls-Royce, DLR is enlarging its infrastructure in Cologne to develop environmentally-friendlier gas turbines. After a construction time of 18 months and an investment of some 50 million euros, the new high-pressure combustor test…
Better analysis of the process by which power plants receive hydrogen gas can save operators money and improve safety. “Power plants need to do all they can to cost-effectively and safely produce electricity. But many overlook the fact that their…
German fuel-cell developer Sunfire has demonstrated a first of a kind Power-to-Liquids (PtL) rig that uses its technology to synthesize fuel from electricity. “Our power-to-liquids technology extends the product range of flow-based hydrocarbons to liquid fuels such as diesel and…
Research into turbocharger bearings and shaft motion to verify imbalance response, test ramp rates and stability offers the ability to improve efficiency for power plant operators. “Gas bearings power losses are typically 5% to 10% of those in oil-lubricated bearings,”…
New laser detection technology may be able to detect leaks at commercial biogas plants within the next three years, according to researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques (IPM).
Despite their natural suitability for open-cycle operation, aeroderivative turbines are now considered for use in combined cycle plants as well, especially in regions with high renewable penetration. A Rolls-Royce paper highlights a configuration for small-scale combined cycle plants utilising the…
Keen to tap rising demand for decentralized power generation, Himoinsa is introducing 'HG Gas Generators' with power outputs ranging from 20kW to 3.5MW, running on different fuels such as natural gas, LPG and biogas.
The U.S. department of Energy (DoE) has announced funding for four research projects focused on next-generation gasification systems. A total of $16 million will be provided across projects under development by Aerojet Rocketdyne, Alstom Power, Praxair and TDA Research.
Post-combustion carbon capture using ceramic-like adsorbents offer a significant cost-savings potential over traditional alternatives, according to technology developer Inventys. “Our carbon capture techniques can be as low as a third or a quarter [of the cost] of solvent-based approaches,” André…
