Power Plant HRSG Remaining Life Assessment project completed

ETD recently completed a project at a power generation plant based in Jakarta, Indonesia. The work involved remaining life assessment on their HRSG boilers which are used in combined cycle operation.

Coal Power Plant & Materials Life Assessment, 1st edition, published

ETD is pleased to announce a new publication, edited by our Managing Director, Dr A Shibli and published by Woodhead Publishing.

Coal Power Plant Materials and Life Assessment (1st edition) reviews the materials used in coal plants, and how they can be assessed and managed to optimise plant operation.

Part I considers the structural alloys used in coal plants.

Part II then reviews performance modelling and life assessment techniques, explains the inspection and life-management approaches that can be adopted to optimise long term plant operation, and considers the technical and economic issues involved in meeting variable energy demands.

The text:

  • Summarises key research on coal-fired power plant materials, their behaviour under operational loads, and approaches to life assessment and defect management;
  • Details the range of structural alloys used in coal power plants, and the life assessment techniques applicable to defect-free components under operational loads;
  • Reviews the life assessment techniques applicable to components containing defects and the approaches that can be adopted to optimise plant operation and new plant and component design.
