Development and Use of Correction Factors for IGCC Power Plant Test Code PTC 47.4

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This webinar is scheduled to commence on December 5, 2013 at 11AM ET and ends at 12PM ET.

Power-generation engineers!
ASME presents a free webinar event on the Development and Use of Correction Factors for Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) Power Plant Test Code PTC 47.4. This webinar derives from ASME’s anticipated PTC 47.4 Power Block of an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle Power Plant.

ASME Performance Test Code 47 (PTC47) was published in 2006. Its associated sub-codes are being written to provide a framework for testing and evaluating IGCC plants and their major subsystems. The webinar shows how IGCC power-block performance is tested using the Power Block Code PTC 47.4 (currently in final review), and discusses how a thermodynamic model of the Tampa Electric IGCC power block was created using commercially available software. Correction curves, which are derived from the model to compensate for deviations from design conditions, are also described, and a typical application of correction curves is given.

Who Should Participate?
This webinar is limited to the first 300 registrants. Mechanical, design, drafting, production and manufacturing engineers; quality assurance and control personnel; plus engineering supervisors and department heads across a broad range of power generation. All others receiving this email will have the opportunity to download the full transcript, including Q&A, after the presentation.

How to Join
You will be emailed instructions to register for the free ASME PTC 47 Webinar event on “An Example of the Development and Use of Correction Factors for (IGCC) Power Plant Test Code PTC47.4,” a 30-minute presentation from Richard De Puy, one of the leading technical experts in the gasification field. Then, for 30 minutes immediately following the presentations, you will have a unique opportunity to ask questions directly via web-conferencing.
