  • Publication number: 20210285396
    Abstract: A coal gasification combined power generation facility includes a feed water supply line that supplies feed water condensed by a condenser to an exhaust heat recovery boiler; a supply adjustment valve that adjusts the flow amount of feed water supplied to the exhaust heat recovery boiler; a turbine bypass line that bypasses a steam turbine and supplies steam to the condenser; and a spray water line that supplies the feed water to the turbine bypass line. The coal gasification combined power generation facility has a bypass operation mode, wherein a control device supplies the feed water to the turbine bypass line and performs a first opening degree control to control the opening degree of the supply adjustment valve so that the amount of feed water supplied to the exhaust heat recovery boiler becomes less than that in a normal operation mode.

  • Patent number: 10538256
    Abstract: According to a railcar, a fuse member that couples a first end beam to a second end beam along a car longitudinal direction is formed as a channel material with an approximately U-shaped cross-section, including a web disposed to extend along the car longitudinal direction and a pair of flanges disposed upright from both end portions of this web. Accordingly, when a load received in collision exceeds a predetermined value, the fuse member buckles to allow the first end beam to move toward the second end beam to ensure reducing variation of the load that allows the first end beam to move toward the second end beam. Consequently, when the intended load is input, the first end beam is allowed to move toward the second end beam.
