POWER PLANT PERFORMANCE EVALUATION REPORT ONE SUBIC POWER GENERATION CORPORATION (OSPGC) Part I. Power Plant Process Background One Subic Power Generation Corporation is a diesel engine power plant that is located at Causeway Road, Subic, Zambales. It operates with an installed capacity of 116 MW – 110 MW of it was supplied directly or retailed to the Ancillary Services Procurement Agreement or Wholesale Electricity Spot Market, while the remaining 6 MW was allotted for the operation of the power plant. It contains eight V18 460 diesel engines that generate electricity. The plant has two chimneys – each handle four diesel engines, that are responsible for the exhausts. The capacity of each engine is 14.5 MW assuming a household demands a 1,000 KW of electrical power therefore the plant can supply 1100 household by the operation of the diesel engine power plant. Also, it has a 0.25 L/kWh fuel efficiency and 2.001 L/kWh lubricating oil. The diesel engine power plant has two bunker storage towers for its fuel that are accessible anytime. Part II. Objectives of the Performance Analysis (General and Specific Objectives) This Power Plant Performance Evaluation Report aims to evaluate the performance of One Subic Power Generation Corporation. 1. To be familiar with the components and apparatuses located at diesel engine power plants 2. To understand more the working principles of a diesel engine power plant 3. To practice safety protocols inside a diesel engine power plant Part III. Technical Data, Information, and Assumptions Before exposing the students to the inside environment of the plant, discussions about One Subic Power Generation Corporation’s brief history and basic principles were made giving emphasis on the safety protocols inside the power plant. Students were introduced at the control room where control panels in operating the diesel engine power plant were located. Huge engines were found at the confinement facility of the diesel engines. Included in the lecture is the discussion of the importance of monitoring the power plant and is possible effect if failure occurs. Type of Power Plant: Diesel Power Plant, Peak Load Power Plant Total Capacity: 116 MW Reserved Capacity: 6 MW No. of Engines: 8 Engines No. of Cylinders: 18 Cylinders Fuel Consumption: 0.25 liter/KWh
Typical Schematic Diagram of a Diesel Power Plant Part IV. Analysis and Interpretation of Results One Subic has reserved capacity (6 MW) from OSPGC. They just operate when the demand is high that’s why they are classified as Peak Load Power Plant. The power generated by the 8 engines are enough to supply the power needed by the consumers. The reserved capacity is also enough to support the power needed by the plant. One Subic Power Generation Corporation is under of PHINMA Energy Corporation. During the whole plant tour, the students observed that the maintenance and facilities of the plant are well maintained and the whole plant is well supervised. It uses 18 cylinders of internal combustion engine. An internal combustion engine is a heat engine where the combustion
