This four-hour course looks at a new coal-fired power plant technology called an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plant. An IGCC power plant converts coal into a synthetic gas which, after suitable cleaning and treatment is burned in a combustion turbine to produce power. Furthermore, the waste heat from the combustion turbine exhaust is then used to convert water into steam and the steam is used to drive a steam turbine to produce even more electrical power.

Gasification technology has been used for years in the chemical industry and a combined cycle power plant is also existing technology, but the marriage of the two technologies is an attempt to develop a new level of efficiency in coal-fired power plants. An additional benefit is that carbon dioxide can be readily captured in an IGCC plant.
