The In summary, the project provided Mercury Specie and technology applied throughout allows unit valuable information on neural networks flexibility ( i.e., existing systems can be and the positive results should encourage Multi-Pollutant integrated within the overall solution ) and other power plants to install these systems is extendible ( new modules / new equipment to control sootblowing, improve boiler Control Project can be readily modeled and incorporated ). efficiency, reduce NO emissions, and X improve other aspects of their operations. In general, the project provided a testing Although equipment and instrumentation Introduction ground for several innovative measurement issues may have precluded the NN-ISB devices and feedback on their operation project from achieving all of its goals, the Implemented under the CCPI, the project that may also lead to improved instruments. project clearly demonstrated the validity of at the NRG Texas ( formerly Texas Genco ) Since some equipment and instrumentation using AI to control a major aspect of boiler Limestone Power Plant in Jewett, Texas, is ( e.g., water cannons, heat flux sensors, operation. designed to demonstrate the capability to slag sensors, and acoustic pyrometers ) did optimize mercury speciation and control not fully operate as expected during this emissions from an existing power plant. testing, an additional project with improved NRG Texas, with a generating capacity of equipment and instrumentation may be more than 14,000 MW, has plants primarily needed in order to fully quantify all the based on fossil fuels and is an important benefits. Other project goals were also producer of electricity in Texas. achieved: Performed by Pegasus Technologies, Promoted the use of coal by making Inc., a division...
