Second generation gasification combined-cycle power plants for US utilities--Detailed performance and cost estimates

By M. J. Gluckman and B. M. Louks


Studies of integrated coal gasification combined-cycle power plants carried out by four US manufactures and process firms are summarised and their results compared on an equivalent basis. The results of these studies indicate that integrated gasification combined-cycle power plants based on the oxygen-blown Texaco entrained flow gasifier and employing current technology gas turbines have the potential for providing substantial performance improvements over conventional coal-fired steam stations with flue gas desulphurisation.
