The objective of this paper is to better equip the reader with tools to make relative comparisons between different Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) concepts including various CO2 compressor configurations with more confidence. Methods for analyzing comparative costs for CCS implementation in Coal plants, in terms of Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) and cost per ton CO2 removed or avoided ($/tonCO2 ) are described. The contribution of compression to LCOE is significant and highly dependent on configuration. Critical inputs required for accurately calculating compressor power and some common errors that significantly impact the results of power consumption can increase the estimated power required by 40%. Sensitivity analyses for critical compressor characteristics are provided. In addition, the impact of energy (heat) integration on the overall economics of the plant can reduce the LCOE penalty. Finally, configuration parameters for systems meeting the national targets of 35% LCOE penalty for CCS costs are explored.
