Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) technology plays a vital role in power plants, particularly those employing combined cycle or cogeneration systems. HRSGs capture waste heat from gas turbines and utilize it to generate steam, which is then used to drive a steam turbine and produce additional electricity. This innovative technology enhances overall plant efficiency by maximizing the utilization of fuel energy. HRSGs are designed to handle high temperatures and pressures, allowing for efficient heat transfer and steam generation. They are equipped with various heat exchanger sections, such as economizers, evaporators, and superheaters, which extract heat from different parts of the exhaust gas stream. Additionally, HRSGs are equipped with advanced control systems to optimize the performance and reliability of the system. The implementation of HRSG technology enables power plants to achieve higher thermal efficiency, reduce fuel consumption, and minimize environmental impact by utilizing waste heat effectively.
