  • Patent number: 11415078
    Abstract: In the present invention, a coal gasification combined power generation facility comprises: a feed water supply line (72); a condensate pump (39) and an intermediate-pressure feed water pump (40); a turbine bypass line (32) that bypasses a steam turbine and supplies steam to the condenser (73); and a spray water line (76) that supplies the feed water to the turbine bypass line (32). The coal gasification combined power generation facility has a normal operation mode and a bypass operation mode, and in the bypass operation mode, a control device (80) supplies the feed water to the turbine bypass line (32) 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 the normal operation mode.

  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20140147327
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the development of an alloy material with significantly improved low-temperature brittleness, recrystallization brittleness, and irradiation brittleness by the introduction of a recrystallization microstructure into an alloy, particularly a tungsten material, to significantly strengthen a weak grain boundary of the recrystallization microstructure. The present invention comprises the steps of: mechanically alloying at least one species selected from a group-IVA, VA, or VIA transition metal carbide and a metallic raw material; sintering base powders obtained through the mechanically alloying step, by using a hot isostatic press; and performing plastic deformation of at least 60% on the alloy obtained through the sintering step, at a strain rate between 10?5 s?1 and 10?2 S?1 and at a temperature between 500° C. and 2,000° C.

  • Patent number: 6245463
    Abstract: The present invention provides a substrate for a secondary battery electrode having excellent bonding strength of a sintered porous metal to a ground metal plate so that the sintered porous metal does not peel off from the ground metal plate when the substrate for a secondary battery electrode is rolled up and fixed into a cylindrical battery. For this purpose, a layer of metal having a melting point lower than that of the ground plate is formed at least on one side of the ground plate, and a porous layer is formed by forming a layer of powdered metal having a melting point higher than that of the layer of metal on the layer of metal and sintering the powdered metal at a temperature not less than the melting temperature of the layer of metal and not more than those of the ground plate and the powdered metal.
