Gross calorific value (GCV) is the amount of heat released by the complete combustion of a unit of natural gas. It is also known as Higher Heating Value (HCV). Net Calorific Value (NCV) also known as lower heating value (LHV) or lower calorific va...
Coal, as it is commonly known, is a solid fossil hydrocarbon fuel material. The gross calorific value of coal is frequently used when determining the total calorific value for a specific amount of coal for fuel value purposes or when establishing the rank of classification of the coal material.
Higher heating value. The quantity known as higher heating value (HHV) (or gross energy or upper heating value or gross calorific value (GCV) or higher calorific value (HCV)) is determined by bringing all the products of combustion back to the original pre-combustion temperature, and in particular condensing any vapor produced.
