Abstract or Table of Contents
This report describes the input parameters in the cost model developed for an integrated gasification combined cycle plant (IGCC) operating with a GE radiant quench gasifier. The performance model for this system was developed by the Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) as an Aspen Plus steady-state process simulation. The performance model was delivered to Carnegie Mellon for the purpose of adding a cost model, as described in this report. Parameters from the performance model that are required for the cost model are identified in this report.
The cost model is divided into four separate areas: (1) financing parameters, (2) capital cost parameters, (3) operating and maintenance parameters, and (4) levelized cost parameters. Each input parameter is described briefly in the following sections. Intermediate and final result parameters are not described here; however, a final cost report is provided for two illustrative cases.
