ABSTRACT
The objective of this work is to evaluate the integration of a
linear Fresnel field in a feedwater heating scheme with a paper
mill cogeneration plant to provide additional electricity generation.
The plant in question is located in Mato Grosso do Sul state and
is equipped with a cogeneration cycle that uses a regenerative
feedwater heating system. The steam generator has a 600 t/h capacity
and provides steam at 91 bar / 490 °C. Main steam is expanded in
a backpressure and a condensing steam turbine. Solar integration is
evaluated to displace the high-pressure steam extraction (34 bar)
by preheating feedwater at 120 bar from 150 to 200°C at design
point. The otherwise extracted steam is expanded in the condensing
turbine providing power boost. Simulations were performed using
EES software for a typical meteorological year. 11,955 MWh additional
electricity was observed after hybridization (+1.7% when compared to
the base case operation) at LCOE ranging from 160 to 215 US$/MWh
depending on solar field investment. The solar-to-electricity efficiency
was equal to 13%. This work demonstrated the gains due to
integration of solar concentrators with a paper cogeneration plant,
representing an opportunity to increase the capacity of these units to
export additional power to the grid.

Keywords: Biomass; paper mill; cogeneration; solar energy;
