Carbon capture and storage (CCS) seems to be an indispensable technology to safeguard the future of fossil-fired generation in the context of global warming. The deployment of CCS has an impact on the functioning and balancing of the overall electricity generation system. In this paper a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model is developed for an ultra super-critical pulverized coal plant with post-combustion capture. Emphasis is on an appropriate representation of the dynamic behavior of this power plant. Four operating modes are considered for the capture plant, i.e., normal, start-up, off, and stand-by. The model is illustrated by means of a methodological example.
