The Options for Long Duration Energy Storage
Long-duration energy storage is a broad definition.  This panel will attempt to clarify one of the most important bands of the energy sector.

Panelists Erik Steimle and Hugh McDermott will provide updates on pumped hydro and flow battery technology.  Long-time energy storage expert Doug Houseman will discuss all other options for utilities and developers.

Hosted by Jay Dauenhauer of the Energy Cast Podcast, this panel will be a lively and engaging discussion, exploring the possibilities and advantages of long-duration energy storage.

A Case Study on EMI Monitoring
Sponsord by Cutsforth: Cutsforth will present a case study where EMI Monitoring and the associated signature assessment identified anomalies in a Transformer and Isophase Bus, which led to the replacement of a number of cracked insulators during a planned outage. During the presentation, Cutsforth will describe the conditions that led to the discovery, the type of signals related to the failure mode, and the importance of comparative data when diagnosing a transient event and key conclusions.

Exploring Plant Control Strategies to Support Grid Frequency Response
Mix in the energy generation portfolio has been changing in recent years. More renewable energy resources are being added to the generation portfolio, creating new opportunities and challenges. Among other challenges of flexibility, these changes can also bring the challenges of grid frequency control. Bulk generation has inherent inertia due to turbines and generators that help control the frequency. As the penetration of renewables continues to increase, the power system inertia will be affected in a way that will require advanced control and optimization schemes to respond to under frequency and other disturbances of the grid. There are many EPRI and other research organizations performing research in this area from the grid aspect. Further research in the area of generator and governor control may be warranted. The objective of the project is to explore gaps in the research related to frequency response. Specifically, frequency response research gaps in the area of generator and governor controls.

Green Steam: Utilizing Hydrogen Firing of Packaged Boilers for Auxiliary Boiler and District Energy Applications
A great deal of work has gone into reducing and eliminating the carbon footprint in an economical and sustainable manner for utility and district energy applications. Much information has been presented on using hydrogen as a fuel for combustion gas turbines to support zero-carbon-emission CHP solutions. However, not enough has been said about applying the same approach to generate heating and process steam utilizing the packaged boilers in these same facilities. Hydrogen is a proven and viable fuel source whether the packaged boiler serves as a back-up to the CHP system, if it is used for heating steam, or whether it is producing steam to generate power in a steam turbine. The technology needed to facilitate hydrogen firing and eliminate CO emissions from the system is not new and does not increase risks associated with packaged boiler or burner design and operation. In order to ensure success, there are specific design factors in both the boiler and combustion system that must be considered. These system designs can significantly affect system efficiency as well as environmental regulation compliance. This presentation is designed to inform the audience about the key considerations when looking at firing hydrogen as a fuel in their packaged boiler. Green steam is not only a possibility but is a necessity. Understanding the entire system will prepare users for a successful project.

Chasing Grid Demand Can Be Problematic on Large Coal Boiler Operation and Equipment - Put These Tips to Use at Your Facility
In today’s energy market with the increased use of renewable energy and high efficiency combined cycle power plants, many of the once base loaded pulverized coal power plants must cycle and/or operate at low load. Many plants are operating at 25% - 50% of MCR which is exposing new operating challenges that impact not only the efficiency of the plant at these loads but also the reliability of the boiler. Most professionals in the power industry are aware of the additional stresses cycling or low load operation can have on the boiler material and water chemistry. Conversely, Storm has found that there are several operator controllable parameters that are often overlooked but if addressed can improve the reliability of the overall plant. 1. Pulverizer Operation – Under cycling or low load situations the pulverizers at some point are operating on at the minimum primary air setpoint. At this point, the mill is most susceptible to coal rejects. While excessive coal rejects are considered a “stealth” heat rate penalty by Storm Technologies; it is also a safety concern due to the raw fuel that is spilling through the throat. 2. Out of Service Burner Health – Burners that are out of service are exposed to much greater temperatures than in-service burners. Out of service burner temperatures without cooling air often have metal temperatures north of 1,200°F – 1,300°F. This can easily cause the metals to warp and crack which impacts the efficiency of the burner. 3. Total Airflow Control – NFPA 85 requires a pulverized coal boiler to maintain 25% of full load airflow as the minimum airflow allowed during operation. Storm has found boilers operating with nearly 100% more airflow than is required for combustion when operating at low loads. 4. Poor Ignitor Flames – During startup, shut down or when oil ignitors may be put in service Storm has found that many cases, the ignitors suffer from “lazy” flame patterns. This is known to be the source of liquid oil carry over, elevated opacity levels and can even cause an air heater fire. The presentation will cover these four topics in more detail. Providing recent examples of field gathered data and the solutions that have been proven to mitigate these common, often overlooked, challenges plants face these days while cycling or operating at low loads.

The industry is undergoing a fundamental change faced with unpredictable climate change and move towards electrification, non-traditional energy sources and providers. But the investments in infrastructure have failed to keep pace leading to catastrophic results in some cases. Electricity has also gone from a novelty to a necessity in the last 100+ years, and we’ve seen a varied response, often dependent on geography, socioeconomics, and the partnerships and vision of individual utilities to address the challenge of re-imaging the very nature of the grid. Utilities must establish a comprehensive and strategic vision to re-building the grid with resiliency, sustainably and with affordability in mind. Integrating modern technologies within existing infrastructure, testing them in real time while maintaining current services. These organizations, historically slow moving and risk adverse must learn to turn (and innovate) fast. At the same time, some utilities are well ahead of the curve, topping the leader board in supporting sustainable energy. However, these frontrunners also serve as our frontline, dealing with the pain of first-time issues and new challenges unique to early adopters. Join us for an insightful panel discussion that will explore the challenges and some real-world examples of how utilities, state and local governments are rising to meet these challenges head on.The industry is undergoing a fundamental change faced with unpredictable climate change and move towards electrification, non-traditional energy sources and providers.
