POWER PLANT UTILIZATION OF COAL

This report is directed to the use of coal and coal-derived fuels for the generation of electric power at central-station utility plants and for industrial applications, especially the generation of steam in industrial boiler plants. The scope of this report is limited to that technology expected to have commercial impact by 1995. Included were various aspects of fossil-fuel-fired steam-electric plants, gas-turbine plants, and combined-cycle plants, as they relate to electric-power generation systems. Primary emphasis is placed on the utilization of coal and coal-derived fuels, including gasified and liquefied fuels resulting from coal-conversion processes. The state of the art of fuel utilization is reviewed, anticipated problems are identified, and R and D needs are defined.
