Making Coal Flexible: Getting From Baseload to Peaking Plant

Power systems in the 21st century will favor resources that have low marginal costs and provide system flexibility, including the ability to cycle on and off and to run at low minimum loads to complement variations in output. This paper uses a case study of a coal-fired generating station (CGS) to evaluate how power plants intended to run at baseload can evolve to serve other system needs. It shows that coal-fired power plants can continue to operate cost-effectively if they cycle routinely. This report is also available in Mandarin.
