    Abstract: In order to figure out stall solution of induced draft fans (IDFs) in power plants, the stall reason of IDFs with guide vanes in Tongchuan Power Plant of 600MW is investigated. By comparing hot test data of IDFs, we also find that the IDFs are of low efficiency and high power consumption in addition to the stall problem. Considering the above condi... Show More

    Abstract: This paper reports the development of a next-generation algorithm to calculate the knock resistance for LNG compositions. This so-called PKI Methane Number is developed and tested for a lean-burn, medium-BMEP gas engine. The algorithm itself is a polynomial equation based on thousands of simulations performed using an experimentally verified engine... Show More
