Determination of thermal performance or efficiency of steam generators by traditional ASME procedures is a complex and difficult undertaking. When the fuel is municipal solid waste, additional variables are introduced to confound the procedures further. A new approach is proposed as a basis for discussion. The intent of the new approach is to reduce the time and effort required to achieve agreement that a municipal-solid-waste-fired steam generator has performed as specified and/or guaranteed.
