Energy Conservation System (ECS) provides steam flow rates from 3,500 lb/hr and up. The small cogeneration system consists of a backpressure steam turbine used in parallel with an existing pressure-reducing valve or pressure-reducing de-superheating station. Steam is expanded in the backpressure turbine (ECS), which drives the generator, thus converting the heat energy of the steam to electrical power. A control valve regulates the steam flow rate to the turbine to maintain the requisite steam pressure at the outlet of the turbine. This control ensures correct steam pressure for the process.
