The Power Systems Development Facility (PSDF) is an engineering scale demonstration of advanced coal-fired power systems and high-temperature, high-pressure gas filtration systems that would be integral to an improved coal-fired power plant having efficiencies well over 40%, while exceeding all current emission standards for coal-fueled plants. The paper will describe such a plant before expanding the discussion on the operational experiences of the Kellogg Brown & Root, Inc. (KBR) Transport Reactor and the Siemens Westinghouse Power Corporation (SWPC) high-temperature gas filter system currently being demonstrated at the PSDF. A short survey of the process advantages (capital, operational, efficiency, and reliability) over current Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) plant designs, including hot gas clean-up, air-blown gasification, non-slagging gasifier operation and equipment commonality with existing pulverized coal power plants, will be highlighted; as will the potential of the power plant to be retrofitted in response to future carbon capture requirements.
