If X is >20, then the HR reduction target is 24% of the deviation. (d) Coal based thermal Power Plant Station Target Net Operating Heat Rate without Normalization. The Station Net Operating Heat Rate without Normalization is the ONHR of baseline year minus the heat rate reduction target given to it.
Upgrading and efficiency improvement in coalfired power plants 5 The efficiencies of coalfired plants will normally decrease over time as components suffer deterioration with age and use. The losses that develop in the earlier part of the life of a plant are generally containable by employing good operating and maintenance practices.
