Abstract

Recovery of waste heat from boiler flue gas is an effective way to improve energy utilization efficiency. Taking a heating station heating project as an example, the existing heating system of this heating station was analyzed for its underutilized flue gas waste heat and low energy utilization rate. Rankine cycle is an effective waste heat recovery method, and a steam boiler organic Rankine cycle (ORC) cogeneration waste heat utilization method is proposed. The system model simulation is constructed and verified. First, a thermodynamic model was constructed in MATLAB and five suitable work gases were selected to analyze the effects of evaporation temperature and condensation temperature on the network and thermal efficiency of the waste heat cycle power system. Secondly, the ORC model is invoked in TRNSYS to construct the improved cogeneration system, and the rationality of the remaining heat utilization methods is determined by calculating and analyzing the thermal performance, economy, and environmental protection of the improved system. The simulation results show that the system can generate about 552,000 kWh of electricity per year, and improving the energy utilization rate from 0.72 to 0.78.
