Energetic, exergetic and thermoeconomic analysis of Bilkent combined cycle cogeneration plant

Colpan, C. Ozgur
Yesin, Tulay
This paper is a case study of thermodynamics and economics related analyses applied to an existing gas/steam combined cycle cogeneration plant. Basic thermodynamic properties of the plant are determined by energy analysis utilizing main operation conditions. Exergy destructions within the plant and exergy losses to environment are investigated to determine thermodynamic inefficiencies and to assist for guiding future improvements in the plant. Cost balances and auxiliary equations are applied to several subsystems in the plant, hence, cost formation in the plant is observed. Additionally, cost rate of each product of the plant is calculated. Copyright (c) 2005 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.


Computation of instantaneous fuel consumption for the determination of combustion efficiency with special reference to coal briquette size
Altun, Naci Emre; Bagci, AS (Informa UK Limited, 2006-04-01)
This study comprises of the computation of instantaneous fuel consumptions as a straight means for the interpretation of combustion-related characteristics of coal. The model relies on the determination of the extent of combustion by the calculated fuel combustion amounts at specific instants in order to examine the oxidation behavior and possible influences governed by any variable of interest. In this context, coal briquettes prepared by varying dimensions with and without a volume constraint were evaluat...
Characterization and Development of Drilling Fluid Type for an Oil Field
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
In this study, different types of drilling fluids are developed and analyzed for a mature oil field. The optimum conditions were developed for shallow and deep formations. The experimental procedure that was followed for viscosity, fluid loss, density, and pH calculations is based on the standards dictated by API RP 13B. At the end of the experiments, it was also observed that for shallow depths, 0.2-0.3 lb of caustic soda will be enough for one barrel of drilling fluid. On the other hand, lignosulphanate t...
Characterization of lignocellulose biomass and model compounds by thermogravimetry
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
In this research, combustion characteristics of lignocellulose biomass (hazelnut shell) and three main components (cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin) were investigated using thermogravimetry (TGA-DTG) technique at different heating rates. The ignition, peak, burn-out temperatures, and the heat liberation of lignocellulose biomass and three main components were also measured. Two different model-free kinetic methods, known as Ozawa-Flynn-Wall (OFW) and Kissinger-Akahira-Sunose (KAS), were used in order to...
Analytical and Numerical Modeling of CO2 Sequestration in Deep Saline Aquifers
Ozgur, E.; Gumrah, F. (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
The analytical and numerical modeling of CO2 sequestration in deep saline aquifers having different rock and fluid properties was studied under diffusion and convection mechanisms. In a diffusion dominated system, an aquifer with 100 m thickness was saturated with CO2 after 10,000,000 years. It was much earlier in a convective dominant system. In the diffusion process, the dissolution of CO2 in aquifer increased with porosity increase; however, in a convection dominant process dissolution of CO2 in aquifer ...
Modeling of CO2 storage in an oil reservoir
Gumrah, F.; Dulger, M.; Gunaydin, D.; Senel, O. (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
This study provides an overview for the carbon dioxide sequestration process in an oil reservoir by using the software CMG's GEM. Different scenarios are applied for the oil reservoir description. Firstly, a single layered reservoir is considered and simulation studies are performed, as this reservoir is homogeneous, heterogeneous and fractured. Secondly, a multi-layered reservoir is examined. In the second case, a heterogeneous system and a heterogeneous system composed of homogenous layers are selected. F...
