Optimization of Operational Method to Improve Sustainable Energy Efficiency of Auxiliaries in a CFBC Coal Fired Boiler- Problem Statement and Probable Solution.

Manish R. Moroliya; Vinay Chandra Jha

The thermal power station uses some amount of their generated power to be consumed by its auxiliary power requirements. The auxiliary power consumption in the country is around 8-9%. The auxiliary power consumption can be minimize by increasing the load factor, by operational optimization, applying advanced control techniques and energy efficient measures. By decreasing the auxiliary power extra power will be available at grid. Thus, the aim of the audit is to determine the potential areas for minimizing auxiliary power consumption by operational optimization and energy management policy to improve energy efficiency of auxiliaries. This study will give the basic understanding of energy management approach, energy efficiency and energy saving areas so as to achieve maximum plant efficiency resulting fuel saving. Boiler feed pump is one of the equipment in a power plant with the highest auxiliary consumption. The research is specifically targeted at the feed water system and its potential for obtaining considerable energy and cost savings.
