Power Generation Calculator

As a general rule, the power generated by a Steam Turbine increases with an increase in:

  • Inlet Pressure

  • Inlet Temperature

  • Steam Flow Rate

Since the Steam Flow Rate is usually fixed by your plant requirement, it is recommended to opt for a Boiler that produces steam at a higher pressure and temperature (by superheating) than what is strictly necessary for your plant's operation. Although the fuel cost for running this Boiler will increase marginally, the cost savings by way of power generation will far outweigh the higher operating cost in most cases.
