25 – 26 JUNE 2018, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

About The Course

This seminar will cover all aspects of ultra supercritical steam power plants and advanced ultra supercritical power plants.  These plants have achieved a net electrical efficiency of 50%.  This efficiency is significantly higher than the efficiency of conventional power plants which is around 33%.  This indicates that ultra supercritical power plants burn 50% less fuel than conventional power plants to produce the same amount of power.  The ultra supercritical power plants burn coal and biomass.  The environmental emissions of these plants are negligible.  Some ultra supercritical power plants employ carbon capture technology. This makes them more environmentally friendly than any other type of power plants.  They also have higher reliability and lower capital, operation and maintenance cost than conventional power plants.  Large number of ultra supercritical power plants are being built around the world today. China will be installing more than 100,000 MW of ultra supercritical power plants and advanced ultra supercritical power plants during this decade.  Several countries around the world have embarked on a program to replace their conventional coal power plants with ultra supercritical power plants due to their high efficiency, and reliability and low capital, operation and maintenance cost.  Ultra supercritical power plants provide significant economical and environmental advantage over any other type of conventional power plants.

 

This seminar will cover in detail all the components of ultra supercritical steam power plants including steam turbines, boilers, furnace, burners, steam generators, reheaters, superheaters, feedwater heaters, valves, carbon capture equipment, instrumentation, control systems, fuel handling systems and generators.  This seminar will also cover the design, selection considerations, operation, common problems and solutions, maintenance, pay-back period, and economics of ultra supercritical and advanced ultra supercritical power plants in detail.  This seminar will provide in-depth coverage of the emission control methods, carbon capture technology, reliability, economics, monitoring and governing systems of ultra supercritical and advanced ultra supercritical power plants.  This seminar will cover up-dated information in respect to all the significant improvements that have been made to these power generating plants during the last decade.
