Introduction to flexible transformation technology of thermal power

Heating unit Steam turbine side modification technology roadmap

  • Heating transformation of low-pressure cylinder: it can significantly reduce the output of the unit, maintain a certain heating power, and improve the peak shaving flexibility of the unit within a certain range.

  • Steam turbine bypass extraction, temperature and pressure reduction and heating transformation: steam extraction from the unit bypass and heating through the temperature and pressure reducer can improve the heating capacity and peak shaving capacity of the thermal power unit to a certain extent.

  • High back pressure transformation of steam turbine: it can significantly improve the heating capacity of the unit and the thermal efficiency of the whole plant. However, the modified unit can only operate within a certain load range, which actually sacrifices the peak capacity of the unit.

The peak shaving technology of electric heat storage can make the unit realize "thermoelectric decoupling" - meet the demand of heating, and greatly reduce the load rate of the unit at the same time.
