Abstract

Gas turbines fueled by integrated biomass gasifiers are a promising option for baseload electricity generation from a renewable resource. Aeroderivative turbines, which are characterized by high efficiencies at smaller scales, are of special interest because transportation costs for biomass constrain biomass conversion facilities to relatively modest scales. A computational model evaluates appropriate values for key parameters and then carries out energy, mass, and chemical species balances for each plant component, with iterations to ensure whole-plant consistency.
