In order to diversify energy source and to utilize it effectively, it requires to construct an integrated energy management system in a wide area. This research paper explores the core technology of network construction using wide area energy and applies the technology to the field. In specific, it examines the business model by developing l) construction technology of optimum integrated system for thermal supply on wide area network related IT technology, 2) technology of unutilized energy as heat pump using exhaust gas latent heat, and 3) thermal transportation and storage technology using various sources, and by evaluating the applicability and marketability of the model in the field.

Recently due to march as the high oil price, It is necessary for Korea to grope a plan, which is to increase the energy efficiency of existing facilities as well as to develop overseas gas and oil resources. With this point, this work carried out to approach the high pressure LNG pipeline network of Inchon receiving terminal with Newton method as corrective flowrate. We found that the high pressure network mainly depends on FCVs(Flow Control Valves). The high pressure pump showed the maximum efficiency at the FCVs of 50% opening and could discharge LNG only above the LNG head of 1,500m from a system curve obtained. The operating cost of pumps was estimated from their operating points. We compared the operating cost under normal operation with the operating cost under maximum efficiency. Especially, we obtained the day savings of a year as wells as the hour savings of a day. From the results, the high pressure network win be able to reduce the operating cost of 138 million wons in a year. This means that a pump can reduce the operating cost of 9,823 thousands won. Consequently, this work could find the operating features of the pumps under the complicated high pressure LNG network and the savings effect of the pump operating cost. Also, the results will be able to macroscopically contribute the heightening of national energy competitiveness as well as to microscopically contribute the future effective operation of LNG receiving terminal.

Approaching to the era of high energy price and energy sources scarcity, the demand for governmental intervention to mitigate the short-term shocks is highly increasing. When any energy policy is implemented, double-side effects would be derived. To begin with positive aspect, by decreasing energy import, unnecessary currency outflow can be prevented and the resultant saved money will be appropriately allocated. Furthermore, industrial competitiveness will be assured by reducing use of expensive energy. On the contrary, inappropriate energy saving policy may lead to unexpected negative effects that would hinder improvement in productivity due to indiscreet replacing energy by equipments. In order to enhance effectiveness of energy policy, efforts should be made in advance to understand the energy use pattern of each industry sector which composes the economy. Therefore, in this study, an energy input-output method, one of the macroscopic approaches, is applied to analyze energy use patterns of each industry sector in Korea. Using this method, a quantitative assessment is performed to obtain the energy use intensity and the amount of energy uses with respect to energy types.

The combustion behaviors of the blends of Korean anthracite, bituminous coal and their blends were studied with a thermogravimetric analyzer. Concerning the burning profiles of the anthracite-bituminous coal blends in TGA, it has been observed the independent burning of two coals without any interaction between two coals. With the blends of 50% anthracite with 50% bituminous coal in weight basis, the combustion tests in a utility boiler have been carried out for the analysis of the combustion and operational characteristics by increasing the power output from 134 MW to 197 MW. The stable combustion has been observed in a boiler. With the increase of power output, the exhaust gas temperature was exceeded the design value of
, so the combustion air was taken from atmosphere instead of the boiler penthouse.

The purpose of this study is to apprehend the behavior of exhaust gas flow from gas turbine during part load operation in Heat Recovery Steam Generator. As a first step of this work, internal flow characteristics according to HRSG types were examined by CFD analysis. Next step, tube temperature according to gas turbine 53% and 100% load conditions were calculated by results of CFD and those were compared with temperature data gathered from real plant. Finally, thermal performance due to part load operation was calculated to estimate the influence of heat transfer in superheater. In addition, new type of device is suggested to eliminate the uneven temperature distribution of tubes during part load operation.

Line source model is commonly used in analyzing the data obtained from thermal response test to estimate the effective soil formation thermal conductivity. In the application of line source model some part of initial data must be ignored in order to achieve more accurate result. The period of time for this initial data is called initial ignoring time(IIT) in this paper. However there has been no definite rule in determining this initial ignoring time. Therefore line source model requires experienced analyzer to select the useful data, which is somewhat subjective. One method often suggested is the calculation of IIT with non dimensional time
. However, this is a very theoretical result derived from a system of perfect line source model, which is somewhat different from the real system. A new method to determine IIT is presented in this study. This method requires error estimation first and IIT can be decided from the results of error estimation. This method is applied in the analysis of field test data and shows better result than the one obtained from the method using non dimensional time mentioned above as shown in Table 2.
