Integrated Coal Gasification Fuel Cell Combined Cycle (IGFC) is expected to be the most efficient power generation system in coal fired power generation systems [1,2]. However, more energy efficient power generation system has to be developed to decrease CO2 emission in the middle and long term. Thus, the authors have proposed Advanced Integrated Coal Gasification Combined Cycle (A-IGCC) and Advanced IGFC (A-IGFC) systems, which utilize exhaust heat from solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) and / or a gas turbine as a heat source of gasification (exergy recuperation) [3]. Previously A-IGCC [4] and A-IGFC [5] without CO2 capture option were analyzed with the process simulator HYSYS®.Plant (Aspen technology Inc.) to calculate thermal efficiencies of the proposed systems. Then IGCC and A-IGCC with CO2 capture option [6, 7] were analyzed with Amine process simulator AMSIM(DBR), a module in PRO/II® (Invensys Process Systems Japan, Inc) combined with HYSYS®.Plant model. It shows in the results of thermal efficiency with CO2 capture option that the penalty of A-IGCC case is larger than that of IGCC case, indicating somewhat scope for increase of exergy recuperation in A-IGCC case [6]. This study deals in the analyses of A-IGFC with CO2 separation unit.
