Abstract

Construction of new power plants and regulatory process for permit issuance take a long lead time and sometimes do not match the demand of electricity. Therefore, an efficiency improvement with minor modifications on existing power plants can be an attractive option for taking less time and investment. Power plants with higher efficiency consume less energy or gain more power output generation, and inevitably require more investment. Performance enhancement options must be economically retrofitted to increase power output and efficiency. In practice, cost effectiveness is used for the justification of the different modifications.
