IMPROVEMENTS IN NON-REHEAT STEAM PROPULSION - RETROFIT AND NEW CONSTRUCTION
Proposed improvements to major components and systems of non-reheat steam plants are investigated on an individual basis. Both technical and economic advantages and disadvantages are developed and identified. Selected individual components are then combined in several arrangements and the resulting systems evaluated with respect to fuel consumption and capital costs. Consideration is given to both new construction and retrofit applications. Additional details are given in Report PB-273 053.
