Product Description
2014 Pittsburgh Coal Conference Presentation on indirect supercritical CO2 Cycles with the following sections: - Introduction - sCO2 Recompression Brayton Cycle - Screening of Fossil-based Heat Sources - Potential Benefits for Coal-Based Indirect sCO2 Cycles Conclusions include that (1) potential for significant efficiency gains over conventional steam cycles depending on the configuration and temperature; (2) applicable to multiple coal-based platforms; (3) costs currently uncertain; and, (4) coal-based systems have a potential for a 5-15% reduction in COE under certain assumptions.
