Problem Set 5 Intro to Sustainable Energy 2.650/10.291/22.081 Sustainable Energy 1.818/2.65/10.391/11.371/22.811/ESD.166 For each of the problems you work out provide a list of sources for any data you used, as well as your assumptions. Be sure to mark which course number you are registered for on your solution. You can turn in the homework online (via Stellar) or in class. Intro to SE Students : Pick any 2 of the 4 problems to solve. SE Students : Pick 3 of the 4 problems to solve. 1. Consider two power plants, each generating electric power W e at 300 MW e and operating at an annual capacity factor CF of 80%. One plant is fueled by bituminous coal and has an overall efficiency η of 35%. The other plant is combined-cycle, gas-fired system for which the overall efficiency is 55%. Assuming higher heating values ( HHV , kJ/kg-fuel) of 28,000 and 54,000 and carbon contents ( CC , Mt-C/Mt-fuel) of 0.67 and 0.74 for the coal and natural gas, respectively, determine the annual fuel requirement
