For solid fuels, such as coal and biomass, the ash and moisture mass fractions of the as received fuel must be taken into account: V God = - 0.06018 (1 - Ash - H2O) + 0.25437 (H (N) + 2.4425 H2O) (m 3/kg) This type of calculation is based on the heating value of the fuel and is …
LHV is closest to the actual energy yield in most cases. HHV (including condensation of combustion products) is greater by between 5% (in the case of coal) and 10% (for natural gas), depending mainly on the hydrogen content of the fuel.
LHV2 = 7476 Btu/lb – 1049.7 Btu/lb * (22.650 / 100) = 7238 Btu/lb Calculating LHV3: Since LHV3 = HHV – energy needed to vaporize combustion H2O – energy needed to vaporize free H2O – energy needed to convert bound H2O to free H2O, then LHV3 = LHV2 – Qbw where Qbw = energy required to bring bound water to the energy level of free water = MRbw * { (1 / %Mwb) * [467.9415 * %Mwb – 32 ...

The difference is smallest for coal (where LHV is roughly 4 percent less than HHV) and greatest for natural gas (where LHV is about 10 percent lower). Accordingly, a power plant efficiency of 40 percent based on HHV would be reported as 42 percent based on LHV using coal and about 44 percent based on LHV using natural gas.

· Calculating the LHV of Methane. The ∆H comb of one mole of methane (CH 4) at 298.15 K is the heat of reaction between CH 4 and O 2 to form CO 2 (g) and H 2 O(g), according to Equation 1. Table 1 shows values of ∆H° formation of several natural gas reactants and products. Equations 2 and 3 show the calculation for ∆H° reax (i.e. ∆H comb) of methane from these values.
similarly requiring the use of LHV of all fuels combusted at the unit in calculating a unit''s total energy input. EPA notes that, if a unit uses HHV for the calculations and meets the thermal efficiency standard on that basis, the unit would necessarily meet the standard using LHV. See 45 FR 17962. 2. Definition of Lower Heating Value (LHV)
· Thermal efficiency of coal-fired utility boiler is an important indicator used to measure economic operation of power plant. However, on-line calculation for thermal efficiency of boiler still have difficulties, which the coal quality are often changing and not well obtained real-time.

Net calorific value (CV) or Lower Heating Value (LHV) given for all fuels. This means that the latent heat of vaporization of the water vapour created by combustion is not recovered by condensation
· 1. The coal may have some residual water in it, which would lower the effective heating value because that water would subsequently be vaporized. 2. The coal maybe have other hydrocarbons embedded in it. These would produce water when combusted. The HHV for natural gas about 10% higher than the LHV. The HHV for coal is about 5% higher than LHV.
· Coal trader''s web sites give base prices in the international market. We take a coal price of around 65 $ / Ton. The cost of coal consumed by 100 MW power plant is (53.8 x 65) 3497 $ /hr. A 100 MW unit produces 100,000 units of electricity. So the cost of coal per unit of electricity is (3497/100,000) 3.5 cents per unit.
Calorific value is defined as the amount of calories generated when a unit amount of substance is completely oxidized and is determined using the bomb calorimeter. The calorific value of coal represents gross calorific value (H G), which contains the latent heat of water vaporization.When the latent heat of water vaporization is not included, the calorific value is called net calorific value ...
· Consider kerosene instead of coal to simplify the question, and more easily understand the difference between HHV and LHV. In the USA, 1-K and 2-K kerosene grades are defined by ASTM D3699-90, and are identical except that 2-K has a higher sulfur content (0.30% max, by weight) while 1-K can have no more than 0.04% sulfur.
The higher heating value (also known gross calorific value or gross energy) of a fuel is defined as the amount of heat released by a specified quantity (initially at 25°C) once it is combusted and the products have returned to a temperature of 25°C, which takes into account the latent heat of vaporization of water in the combustion products.
Seyler''s calculation is only valid for most bituminous coals. Note 1. NOT valid when the estimated Hdb is less than 3% Note 2. NOT valid when the Odaf content is greater than 15% Note 3. NOT valid for estimation of H if coal shipments are a blend of low rank coal, …

· Note: As a U.S. study, it is presumed that the "Future of Coal" studied used the HHV method for calculating heat rates, which results in efficiency estimates approximately 2% to 4% lower than the LHV method used in the rest of the world.
· 1 kcal/kg 0.0041868 mj/kg. 1 metric ton (tonne) 1.10231 short tons. From GAR to NAR. The difference between net and gross as received (NAR v/s GAR) specific energy values is the latent heat of the water vapour which lowers the effective calorific value in the boiler. To convert from GAR to NAR for bituminous coals subtract approximately.

CCTR Indiana Center for Coal Technology Research 6 COAL RANK Anthracite coal is a dense, hard rock with a jet- black color & metallic luster. It contains between 86% and 98% carbon by weight, & it burns slowly, with a pale blue flame & very little smoke
Heating Value. The lower heating value (LHV) or higher heating value (HHV) of a gas is an important consideration when selecting a gas engine or CHP plant. Gas engines efficiency is typically quoted based upon the LHV of the gas. Whenever a hydrocarbon fuel is burned one product of combustion is water.
