Description

A brochure about Westinghouse Electric's Power At Combined Efficiencies (PACE) system for intermediate-load power plants. In 1970, the Westinghouse Electric Corporation's Gas Turbine Systems Division, located in Lester and Eddystone, Pennsylvania, introduced its pioneering concept for a pre-engineered packaged combined-cycle power plant comprised of two W-501 gas turbines, two heat recovery boilers (or heat recovery steam generators), and one 100MW steam turbine. The first PACE plant was called PACE 260, based on the nominal power rating (260MW) of the plant. The gas turbine model was then designated the W-501B, with a nominal rating of 75MW. Later, in the mid-1970s, with the advent of the first 100MW-class W-501D, the PACE plant rating was increased to approximately 320MW, without the use of any supplemental firing of the HRSGs, as was the case with the PACE 260. This brochure was for the PACE 320 and is the second such PACE brochure. The first was published around 1971 for the PACE 260.
