McLaughlin, PE, have over 30 years each of domain expertise in power plant operations, performance testing and troubleshooting heat rate
and capacity issues.
The plant maintains low heat rate
at partial loads both by taking advantage of the individual genset's ability to maintain low heat rates
at partial load and also by taking individual gensets out of service to maintain individual genset load at full load.
In a recent study entitled Efficient Heat Rate
Benchmarks for Coal-Fired Generating Units, B.
The project's main revenue sources are capacity and energy sales to Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (rated 'BBB+', Negative Outlook) under the terms of a 25-year PPA, which is a modified tolling agreement that reimburses fuel (subject to heat rate
requirements) and certain other operating costs.
The software optimizes the combustion process thereby reducing NO(x), SO(2), and CO(2) emissions, while improving heat rate
and reducing operating costs.
Rating Case DSCRs based on stressed levels of availability, costs, heat rates
, and interest rates suggest coverage could fall below 1.
We are pleased to be associated with an organization that places a priority on environmental stewardship and efficiency, and wanted to recognize KCP&L's success in reducing greenhouse gas emissions through a lower heat rate
," said Mr.
Timing of implementation of market heat rates
that drive power prices;
The PPA is a modified tolling agreement subject to an average availability requirement and guaranteed heat rates
Duke Power's 1993 fossil system heat rate
was 9,417 Btu per kwh.
Faced with a complex regulatory market and volatile energy prices that have increased as much as 38 percent in a single year, several innovative colleges and universities are now using an electricity procurement strategy, called Managed Heat Rate
, as an effective means to control prices and reap significant savings.
At the time of the leveraged transaction, Fitch's view was that market heat rates
in ERCOT would for the next five years exceed the current market heat rate
