0 Large Steam System Condensers

Heat Exchanger Knowledge | Heat Exchanger Companies Suppliers

Steam condenser, shown in Figure 9 below, are the main components of the steam cycle in power generation facilities. This is a closed chamber in which steam turbine and is forced to give up its latent heat of vaporization. This is an important component of the steam cycle for two reasons. One, it changes the steam back into water that is used to return to the steam generator or boiler as feed water. This lowers operating costs by allowing the plants clean and treated condensate to be reused, and it's much easier to pump liquid from vapor. Two, increase the efficiency of the cycle by cycle makes it possible to operate with the greatest possibility of delta-delta-T and P between the source (boiler) and heat sink (condenser).

Since the condensation takes place, the latent heat of condensation term used instead of latent heat of vaporization. Latent heat of condensation of steam is passed into the water flowing through the condenser tubes.

After the steam condenses, saturated liquid continues to transfer heat to the cooling water as it falls to the bottom of the condenser, or hotwell. This is called subcooling, and a certain amount desired. A few degrees subcooling prevents condensate pump cavitation. The difference between the saturation temperature for an existing vacuum condenser and the condensate temperature is called condensate depression. This is expressed as the number of degrees of depression or degrees subcooled condensate. Excessive condensate depression decreases the efficiency of plant operations due to subcooled condensate must be heated in a boiler, which in turn requires more heat from the reactor, fossil fuels, or other heat sources.
There are different condenser designs, but the most common, at least in large power generation facilities, is a straight-through, single-pass condenser illustrated Figure 9 above. Condenser design provides cooling water flow through a tube directly from the inlet water box on one end, into the water box out at the other end. The cooling water flows once through the condenser and the so-called single pass. The separation between the box and the condensation of water vapor carried by the tube sheet in which the cooling water tubes are attached. Cooling water tubes are supported in the condenser with a tube sheet support. Condensers normally have a series of baffles that direct the steam to minimize direct impingement on cooling water tubes. Area under the condenser is hotwell. This is the place to collect the condensate and the condensate pump takes its suction. If noncondensable gases are allowed to build in the condenser, vacuum will be reduced and the saturation temperature at which vapor will condense increases.

Non-condensable gas is also blanket the condenser tubes, thereby reducing the heat transfer surface area of ​​the condenser. This surface area can also be reduced if the level of condensate is allowed to rise above the lower tube of the condenser. Decrease the heat transfer surface has the same effect as reducing the flow of cooling water. If the condenser operating near design capacity, a reduction in the effective surface area results in difficulty maintaining condenser vacuum.

Temperature and flow rate through the condenser cooling water temperature control of the condensate. This in turn controls the saturation pressure (vacuum) of the condenser. To prevent condensate from rising to levels below the condenser tube, hotwell level control system can be used. Varying the current from the condensate pump is one of the methods used to improve control hotwell level. A level sensing network controls the condensate pump speed or pump discharge flow control valve position. Another method uses overflow system that spills water from hotwell when high level is reached.

Vacuum the condenser must be maintained as close to 29 inches Hg practical. This allows maximum expansion of steam, and therefore, to work optimally. If the condenser is perfectly air-tight (no air or noncondensable gases present in the exhaust steam), will be necessary only to condense the steam and remove the condensate to create and maintain a vacuum. Sudden drop in the volume of vapor, like condenses, will maintain the vacuum. Pumping water from the condenser as fast as formed will maintain the vacuum. However, it is impossible to prevent the entry of air and other noncondensable gases into the condenser. In addition, there must be some method to initially cause a vacuum in the condenser. This requires the use of an air ejector or vacuum pump to establish and help maintain condenser vacuum.

Basically jet air ejector pumps or eductors, as illustrated in Figure 10 below. In operation, a jet pump has two types of liquids. They are high pressure fluid flowing through the nozzle, and fluid being pumped which flows around the nozzle into the diffuser throat. High-speed fluid into a diffuser where the molecules that attack other molecules. These molecules in turn carried away by high speed liquid out of the diffuser creating a low pressure area around the mouth of the nozzle. This process is called entrainment. Lowpressure area will draw more fluid from the nozzle into the diffuser throat. As the fluid moves down the diffuser, the increasing speed of converting back to the pressure. The use of steam at a pressure between 200 psi and 300 psi for high pressure fluid enables singlestage air ejector to draw about 26 inches Hg vacuum.
Normally, air ejectors consist of two stages suction. Suction first stage is located above the condenser, while the second stage suction comes from the diffuser of the first stage. Exhaust from the second stage must be condensed. This is usually accomplished by the air ejector condenser which is cooled by the condensate. Air ejector condenser also preheats the condensate return to boiler. Two-stage air ejectors able to draw vacuums to 29 inches Hg.

A vacuum pump may be all kinds of motor-driven air compressor. Suction is attached to the condenser, and the release into the atmosphere. A common type uses rotating vanes in the housing ellipse. Single-stage, rotary-vane units are used for vacuums to 28 inches Hg. Two stage units can draw vacuums to 29.7 inches Hg. Vacuum pumps have the advantage over air ejector in that it requires no source of steam for the operation. They are usually used as the initial source of vacuum for condenser start-ups.

0 Parts and How it Works plant: Boiler

PLTU Paiton, Jawa Timur

Steam Power (power plant) consists of several major systems, ie:

1. Turbine & Generator

2. Boiler (Steam Generator)

3. Coal Handling System

4. Ash Handling System

5. Flue Gas System

6. Balance of Plant

Turbine & generator can be regarded as the heart of the plant, because of the electrical energy is generated. Generator which rotates with constant speed, generating electrical energy supplied to the network interconnection and then distributed to consumers.

Steam turbine (steam turbine) which serves to turn a generator, consisting of HP (high-pressure) turbine, IP (intermediate-pressure) turbine and LP (low-pressure) turbine.
Turbine & generator has some supporting equipment, the lubricating oil system and the generator cooling system.

Boiler (steam generator) function to convert water into steam. Very high-pressure steam produced by boilers used to rotate the turbine. Boiler is divided into several sub-systems, namely:

- Boiler steel structure house
- Pressure parts
- Coal system
- Water system
- Boiler Cleaning System
Boiler (Steam Generator)
As the name implies, the boiler house structure is steel building steel frame structure, in which all equipment installed steam generator. This steel frame building height between 50 m (plant capacity of 65 MW) to 100 m (600 MW capacity power plant).
Pressure part system is a major part of the steam generator. These sections serve to convert water into high pressure steam (superheated steam) at temperatures between 500-600 degrees C.
Water supplied to the boiler, first came into the economizer inlet header, continue to be distributed to the economizer elements, reconvening in eco outlet header and then piped into the steam drum. Backpass economizer is located in the area (at the back of the boiler house), while the steam drum at the front of the roof area.
Named economizer as part of this serves to raise the temperature of incoming water boiler by utilizing exhaust gases from the combustion of coal in the furnace area (combustion chamber). By preheating the boiler economizer this efficiency can be improved.
Due to heating by convection in the furnace and due to gravity, water in the steam drum water circulation had dropped to the lower water wall headers via pipe downcomers. From the lower waterwall headers again experienced water circulation by heat, water rises toward the upper wall-tube headers via the tube water wall panels. Then from the upper waterwall header restored water to the steam drum through riser pipes.
So the result of coal burning hot water undergoes a continuous circulation. This circulation causes the water in a water wall panels & steam drum partially transformed into steam.
In a large-capacity power plant, boiler circulation is assisted by water circulating pump mounted on the bottom of the pipe downcomers. Faster circulation will cause the speed of the water changes into steam are also greater.
Inside there is a steam separator drum which serves to separate the steam from the water. The steam is separated, from the steam drum steam is channeled to the roof inlet header connected to the boiler roof panel. Boiler roof panel that carries the steam back into backpass panel.
of backpass panels, steam is channeled into the Low Temperature superheater (LTS) that is in backpass area, above the economizer elements. of LTS steam superheaters channeled into Intermediate Temperature (ITS). Next through the superheater pipe-desuperheater, steam superheater was taken to High Temperature (HTS) elements to undergo the final heating process becomes superheated steam.
ITS and HTS elements located inside the furnace (coal combustion chamber) the top. Some boiler manufacturers give different names to the LT, IT and HT superheater.
Of High Temperature superheater outlet headers, superheated steam with temperatures of 500-600 degrees C and very high pressure to the steam turbine channeled through the main steam pipe.
In the small-capacity power plant, the steam goes to the High Pressure Turbine, continues to Low Pressure Turbine and out into the condenser. While the large-capacity power plant, after turning the HP turbine steam is brought back to the boiler through the cold reheat piping.
Inside the boiler the steam to warm up again in Reheater elements. Reheater elements are usually located between the furnace area and backpass area.
After having re-heating, steam reheated to Intermediate Pressure Turbine channeled through pipes Hot reheat. After turning Intermediate and Low Pressure Turbine, a new steam out into the condenser.

0 How it Works Boiler

Heat energy generated in the boiler system has a value of pressure, temperature, and flow rates that determine the use of steam to be used. Based on all three systems recognize circumstances boiler pressure low-temperature (low pressure / LP), and pressure-high temperature (high pressure / HP), with the difference that the utilization of the steam out of boiler systems used in a process to heat your fluid and run a machine (commercial and industrial boilers), or generating electrical energy by converting heat energy into mechanical energy and then turn a generator to produce electrical energy (power boilers). However, there are also combining the two boiler systems, which use pressure-high temperature to generate electrical energy, then the remaining steam from the turbine with low pressure-temperature conditions can be utilized in industrial processes with the help of a heat recovery boiler.

The system consists of boiler feed water systems, steam systems, and fuel system. Water system provides water to the boiler automatically as needed steam. Various valves are provided for purposes of maintenance and repair of the system feed water, feed water treatment is required as a form of maintenance to prevent damage from the steam system. Steam system collects and controls the production of steam in the boiler. Steam is directed through a piping system to the user's point. The entire system, steam pressure is set using the faucets and monitored with a pressure monitor. The fuel system is all the equipment used to provide fuel to generate the necessary heat. Equipment required on the fuel system depends on the type of fuel used on the system.

0 Siklus PLTU Pembangkit Listrik Tenaga Uap

Sebuah pembangkit listrik jika dilihat dari bahan baku untuk memproduksinya, maka Pembangkit Listrik Tenaga Uap bisa dikatakan pembangkit yang berbahan baku Air. Kenapa tidak UAP? Uap disini hanya sebagai tenaga pemutar turbin, sementara untuk menghasilkan uap dalam jumlah tertentu diperlukan air. Menariknya didalam PLTU terdapat proses yang terus menerus berlangsung dan berulang-ulang. Prosesnya antara air menjadi uap kemudian uap kembali menjadi air dan seterusnya. Proses inilah yang dimaksud dengan Siklus PLTU.
Air yang digunakan dalam siklus PLTU ini disebut Air Demin (Demineralized), yakni air yang mempunyai kadar conductivity (kemampuan untuk menghantarkan listrik) sebesar 0.2 us (mikro siemen). Sebagai perbandingan air mineral yang kita minum sehari-hari mempunyai kadar conductivity sekitar 100 – 200 us. Untuk mendapatkan air demin ini, setiap unit PLTU biasanya dilengkapi dengan Desalination Plant dan Demineralization Plant yang berfungsi untuk memproduksi air demin ini.
Secara sederhana bagaimana siklus PLTU itu bisa dilihat ketika proses memasak air. Mula-mula air ditampung dalam tempat memasak dan kemudian diberi panas dari sumbu api yang menyala dibawahnya. Akibat pembakaran menimbulkan air terus mengalami kenaikan suhu sampai pada batas titik didihnya. Karena pembakaran terus berlanjut maka air yang dimasak melampaui titik didihnya sampai timbul uap panas. Uap ini lah yang digunakan untuk memutar turbin dan generator yang nantinya akan menghasilkan energi listrik.
Secara sederhana, siklus PLTU digambarkan sebagai berikut :
Siklus PLTU
Siklus PLTU
  1. Pertama-tama air demin ini berada disebuah tempat bernama Hotwell.
  2. Dari Hotwell, air mengalir menuju Condensate Pump untuk kemudian dipompakan menuju LP Heater (Low Pressure Heater) yang pungsinya untuk menghangatkan tahap pertama. Lokasi hotwell dan condensate pump terletak di lantai paling dasar dari pembangkit atau biasa disebut Ground Floor. Selanjutnya air mengalir masuk ke Deaerator.
  3. Di dearator air akan mengalami proses pelepasan ion-ion mineral yang masih tersisa di air dan tidak diperlukan seperti Oksigen dan lainnya. Bisa pula dikatakan deaerator memiliki pungsi untuk menghilangkan buble/balon yang biasa terdapat pada permukaan air. Agar proses pelepasan ini berlangsung sempurna, suhu air harus memenuhi suhu yang disyaratkan. Oleh karena itulah selama perjalanan menuju Dearator, air mengalamai beberapa proses pemanasan oleh peralatan yang disebut LP Heater. Letak dearator berada di lantai atas (tetapi bukan yang paling atas). Sebagai ilustrasi di PLTU Muara Karang unit 4, dearator terletak di lantai 5  dari 7 lantai yang ada.
  4. Dari dearator, air turun kembali ke Ground Floor. Sesampainya di Ground Floor, air langsung dipompakan oleh Boiler Feed Pump/BFP (Pompa air pengisi) menuju Boiler atau tempat “memasak” air. Bisa dibayangkan Boiler ini seperti drum, tetapi drum berukuran raksasa. Air yang dipompakan ini adalah air yang bertekanan tinggi, karena itu syarat agar uap yang dihasilkan juga bertekanan tinggi. Karena itulah konstruksi PLTU membuat dearator berada di lantai atas dan BFP berada di lantai dasar. Karena dengan meluncurnya air dari ketinggian membuat air menjadi bertekanan tinggi.
  5. Sebelum masuk ke Boiler untuk “direbus”, lagi-lagi air mengalami beberapa proses pemanasan di HP Heater (High Pressure Heater). Setelah itu barulah air masuk boiler yang letaknya berada dilantai atas.
  6. Didalam Boiler inilah terjadi proses memasak air untuk menghasilkan uap. Proses ini memerlukan api yang pada umumnya menggunakan batubara sebagai bahan dasar pembakaran dengan dibantu oleh udara dari FD Fan (Force Draft Fan) dan pelumas yang berasal dari Fuel Oil tank.
  7. Bahan bakar dipompakan kedalam boiler melalui Fuel oil Pump. Bahan bakar PLTU bermacam-macam. Ada yang menggunakan minyak, minyak dan gas atau istilahnya dual firing dan batubara.
  8. Sedangkan udara diproduksi oleh Force Draft Fan (FD Fan). FD Fan mengambil udara luar untuk membantu proses pembakaran di boiler. Dalam perjalananya menuju boiler, udara tersebut dinaikkan suhunya oleh air heater (pemanas udara) agar proses pembakaran bisa terjadi di boiler.
  9. Kembali ke siklus air. Setelah terjadi pembakaran, air mulai berubah wujud menjadi uap. Namun uap hasil pembakaran ini belum layak untuk memutar turbin, karena masih berupa uap jenuh atau uap yang masih mengandung kadar air. Kadar air ini berbahaya bagi turbin, karena dengan putaran hingga 3000 rpm, setitik air sanggup untuk membuat sudu-sudu turbin menjadi terkikis.
  10. Untuk menghilangkan kadar air itu, uap jenuh tersebut di keringkan di super heater sehingga uap yang dihasilkan menjadi uap kering. Uap kering ini yang digunakan untuk memutar turbin.
  11. Ketika Turbin berhasil berputar berputar maka secara otomastis generator akan berputar, karena antara turbin dan generator berada pada satu poros. Generator inilah yang menghasilkan energi listrik.
  12. Pada generator terdapat medan magnet raksasa. Perputaran generator menghasilkan beda potensial pada magnet tersebut. Beda potensial inilah cikal bakal energi listrik.
  13. Energi listrik itu dikirimkan ke trafo untuk dirubah tegangannya dan kemudian disalurkan melalui saluran transmisi PLN.
  14. Uap kering yang digunakan untuk memutar turbin akan turun kembali ke lantai dasar. Uap tersebut mengalami proses kondensasi didalam kondensor sehingga pada akhirnya berubah wujud kembali menjadi air dan masuk kedalam hotwell.
Siklus PLTU ini adalah siklus tertutup (close cycle) yang idealnya tidak memerlukan lagi air jika memang kondisinya sudah mencukupi. Tetapi kenyataannya masih diperlukan banyak air penambah setiap hari. Hal ini mengindikasikan banyak sekali kebocoran di pipa-pipa saluran air maupun uap di dalam sebuah PLTU.
Untuk menjaga siklus tetap berjalan, maka untuk menutupi kekurangan air dalam siklus akibat kebocoran, hotwell selalu ditambah air sesuai kebutuhannya dari air yang berasal dari demineralized tank.
Berikut adalah gambaran siklus PLTU secara lengkap. (Klik pada gambar untuk memperjelas).

Generator Stator Cooling Water System

The Stator Cooling Water (SCW) system is used to provide a source of de-mineralize water to generator winding for direct cooling of stator winding and associated component.

Strainer are to remove debris in the 20 to 50 microns or large and filter for 3 micron.
De-ionizing sub system is required to maintain low conductivity 0.1 μs/cm. High conductivity can cause a flashover to ground in the stator winding.
Many de-ionizing system use the mixed bed type, employing both a strongly acidic cation resin and a strongly basic anion resin.

The content of copper and iron in the SCW is normally less than 20 ppb. High concentration of either could cause conductivity problem.

When no leaks are present in the system, hydrogen content is s minimum. High hydrogen content into SCW can cause gas locking and conductivity problem.
The dissolved oxygen content of the SCW is controlled to prevent corrosion of the hollow copper strand. Corrosion product can build up and block the cooling water flow. Oxygen at 200 to 300 μg/l produces at highest corrosion rate. The content pf oxygen in the SCW is normally maintained at less than 50 ppb in hydrogen saturated and low oxygen type system, and without limit for open vented or high oxygen type system.

High Oxygen refer to air-saturated water with dissolved oxygen present in the SCW in the range of grater than 2000 μg/l (ppb) at STP. The high oxygen system is based on supposition that the surface of pure copper forms a corrosion resistance and adherent cupric oxide layer (CuO) that becomes stable in the high oxygen environment.

Low oxygen refer SCW with a dissolved oxygen content less than 50 μg/l (ppb). The low oxygen system is based on the supposition that pure copper does not react with pure water in the absence of dissolved oxygen. The upper limit is set by the corrosion rate that the water cleansing system can handle. The lower limit is set to the level where copper will not deposit on any insulating surface in the water circuit such as hose. This is to avoid electrical tracking path to ground. It has better heat transfer properties at copper/water interface and a lower copper ion release rate.

pH value is manufacturer specific. Generally, there are two modes of operation, Neutral and Alkaline.
Neutral pH (7) with low oxygen content less than 50 μg/l is work best. Oxygen at 200 to 300 μg/l produces the highest corrosion rate, but high oxygen over than 2000 μg/l will also work.
Alkaline pH refer to high pH value around 8.5. Again, low oxygen work is best. However high oxygen will also work. This method requires an alkalizing subsystem to keep the pH at the proper level.

The SCW inlet temperature is maintain below 50C and outlet limit is 90C. The pressure set to 5 psi below hydrogen pressure to minimize the possibility water leakage into the generator. The flow velocities are design specific and are based on such thing as heat carrying capacity of water, cross sectional flow area in each bar and corrosion effect on the copper.

0 centrifugal pumps

The pump is a device or machine used to move liquids from one place to another through a medium piping by adding energy to the liquid is removed and continues over time.

The pump operates by the principle of making a difference in pressure between the entrance (suction) to the exit (discharge). In other words, the pump function transform mechanical power from a power source (driving) into kinetic energy (speed), where power is useful to drain the fluid and overcome the barriers that exist throughout the drainage.

Centrifugal pumps

One type of non-positive transfer pump is a centrifugal pump that works to change the principle of kinetic energy (velocity) of fluid into potential energy (dynamic) through an impeller which rotates in the casing.
