Gross Calorific Value?


Gross Calorific Value (GCV) is also known as Gross Heating Value, Higher Heating Value, or Greater Calorific Value. The calorific value of fuel is the quantity of heat produced by its combustion. The combustion process generates water vapor, and certain techniques may be used to recover the quantity of heat contained in the water vapor by condensing it. With GCV, the water of combustion is entirely condensed and the heat contained in the water vapor is recovered.
