A cogeneration plant based on a Combined Cycle (C.C.) system offers advantages especially when an in-expensive fuel can be used. Petroleum coke as a by-product solid fuel with high sulfur content can be fired in an Atmospheric Fluid Bed Combustion Air Heater (AFBC-AH) to provide indirect heating of the compressor discharge air flow of the gas turbine in such a C.C. system, which produces electric power and process steam in an efficient and environmentally clean manner.

This paper describes (a) the overall system and some major components, (b) system performance and (c) the economics of such a plant for an application on a site, where petroleum Coke is already used as raw material in the industrial process.

The paper shows that for this particular application the C.C. cogeneration plant with a petroleum coke fired AFB air heater can be competitive when compared with the natural gas or liquid fuel fired cogeneration plant. In addition, this plant will generate less emissions than generally achieved in solid fuel fired cogeneration plants.
