To All:

I would like to invite both Forum members and visitors to start a discussion on Energy Conversion Systems Modeling -- ask questions of interest, share knowledge and experience related to Energy Conversion Systems Modeling (both present and future energy conversion systems general engineering modeling can be considered -- conservation of mass, momentum and energy and other constituitive engineering equations such as state equation for ideal gas etc.).

Also, everybody is welcome to contribute to the Energy Conversion Systems Modeling topic.



Below are a few plots dealing with the Brayton Cycle (Gas Turbine).

I am working on modelling a combined cycle (Brayton-Rankine cycle) power plant that co-fires biomass and natural gas..Being a novice in this field, can you tell me how to go about analysing this particular plant. What are the main considerations, designing parameters, books to consult. Thanks in advance.

Hi there:

In my opinion, first of all, one needs to find out the operating conditions such as: desired power output, split between Brayton cycle and Rankine cycle, fuel compostions, oxidant composition, gas turbine inlet temperature, pressure ratio, steam turbine inlet temperature and pressure etc.

One can make it as simple as possible and/or as detailed as possible.

Initially, I would recommend to go as simple as possible in preliminary analysis.
As required, the analysis gets wider and wider.

Check out my URL -- http://engware.i-dentity.com -- where you can find some useful free resources when dealing with e-material and e-solutions for power cycles.

Good luck!
