1. Introduction. The coal-fired plant is the primary utilization way of energy. Because lack of suitable metal material to withstand higher pressure and temperature, the thermal efficiency of the ultra-supercritical water steam coal-fired plant is difficult to be further improved.
The basic function of the power plant is to convert energy in coal to electricity. Therefore, the first thing we should know is how much energy there is in coal. Energy content of coal is given in terms of KiloJoules (kJ) per Kilogram (kg) of coal as the Gross calorific value (GCV) or the Higher Heating value (HHV) of coal.
Sanicro ® 25 is a high-alloy austenitic stainless steel engineered for the next generation of coal-fired power boilers: so called Advanced Ultra Supercritical boilers. It is ideal for reheater and superheater tubes in these new systems and will allow for material temperatures of up to 700ºC (1290ºF), contributing to greater efficiency and lower CO 2 emissions.
A boiler or steam generator is a device used to create steam by applying heat energy to water.Although the definitions are somewhat flexible, it can be said that older steam generators were commonly termed boilers and worked at low to medium pressure (7–2,000 kPa or 1–290 psi) but, at pressures above this, it is more usual to speak of a steam generator.

Deaerator provides feedwater near the boiling temperature for the deaerator's set operating pressure. (Saturated Liquid) Steam, Boiler, and Blowdown Pressure are the same. Combustion Efficiency is the % of fuel energy that is directly added to the
Pulverized coal fired boilers the total losses account to about 12 to 14 %. Roughly 50% of the losses can be tuned to the optimum and the other 50 % is governed by fuel properties like hydrogen in fuel, moisture in fuel and ambient air conditions. The main two losses in boiler that can be tuned by operator are carbon loss and dry gas loss. There are a few minor losses in boiler which can also

Pulverized Fuel Boiler. Most coal-fired power station boilers use pulverized coal, and many of the larger industrial water-tube boilers also use this pulverized fuel. This technology is well developed, and there are thousands of units around the world, accounting for well over 90% of coal-fired capacity.
Effects of fuel preparation equipment on boiler performance. Fuel preparation equipment readies the fuel for combustion and can have a significant impact on emissions. The preparation equipment includes the crushers, pulverizers and drying systems on coal-fired units; fuel oil heaters and pumps on oil-fired units; refuse handling, mixing or drying equipment on refuse-fired boilers; or fuel
15 - 60% for coal; Carbon dioxide - CO 2 - is a combustion product and the content of CO 2 in a flue gas is an important indication of the combustion efficiency. Optimal content of carbon dioxide - CO 2 - after combustion is approximately 10% for natural gas and approximately 13% for lighter oils.
From 2006 to 2015, annual average heat rates of natural gas-fired electricity generators decreased 7% as heat rates of coal-fired electricity generators remained stable, increasing only 1%. Heat rates are calculated based on the amount of energy (measured in British thermal units) reported to EIA that was used to generate a unit of electricity.

Boiler efficiency, in the simplest terms, represents the difference between the energy input and energy output. A typical boiler will consume many times the initial capital expense in fuel usage annually. Consequently, a difference of just a few percentage points in boiler efficiency between units can translate into substantial savings.

In an IGCC setting, water consumption is dramatically reduced compared with PC plants due to the reduced reliance on steam on a consistent electrical output basis. Since the syngas produced by the gasification process is combusted in a gas turbine, steam is not used as the primary means of transferring the energy from the coal to rotational energy.
