Description

ELECTRIC POWER PLANT DESIGN TECHNICAL MANUAL

This manual provides engineering data and criteria for designing electric power plants where the size and characteristics of the electric power load and the economics of the particular facility justify on-site generation.

Maximum size of plant considered in this manual is 30,000 kW.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Electric power plants fall into several categories and classes depending on the type of prime mover.

b. Reliability. Plant reliability standards will be equivalent to a l-day generation forced outage in 10 years with equipment quality and redundancy selected during plant design to conform to this standard.

c. Maintenance. Power plant arrangement will permit reasonable access for operation and maintenance of equipment. Careful attention will be given to the arrangement of equipment, valves, mechanical specialties, and electrical devices so that rotors, tube bundles, inner valves, top works, strainers, contractors, relays, and like items can be maintained or replaced. Adequate platforms, stairs, handrails, and kickplates will be provided so that operators and maintenance personnel can function conveniently and safely.

d. Future expansion. The specific site selected for the power plant and the physical arrangement of the plant equipment, building, and support facilities such as coal and ash handling systems, coal storage, circulating water system, trackage, and access roads will be arranged insofar as practicable to allow for future expansion.
