the cost of cycling coal fired power plants

Operating ratio and cost of coal power generation

2019-12-11  However, current coal-fired power generation is in competition with renewable energy and thus generation has shifted in many countries from baseload to load following mode necessitating flexibility in power plant operations. As such, frequent cycling of coal-fired power plants can cause thermal and pressure stresses.
