Maximizing Power Plant Flexibility

As the energy landscape evolves, operators of combined cycle power plants (CCPP) must adapt to the increasing prevalence of renewables, fluctuating fuel prices, and changing legislation. This paper explores how CCPPs can respond to these trends by enhancing their operational flexibility to swiftly respond to market demands.

Key highlights from the white paper include:

  • The shift in operational profiles for CCPPs due to the rise of renewable energy sources.
  • Strategies for optimizing CCPP flexibility, including improved start-up/shutdown processes and load gradients.
  • Siemens Energy’s advanced solutions for enhancing CCPP operational flexibility.
