Public Meeting of the Supercritical CO2 Oxy-combustion Technology Group

Dates: December 11, 2017 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Venue: WebEx
Email: Seth.Lawson@netl.doe.gov


The objective of the Supercritical CO2 Oxy-combustion Technology Group is to promote a technical understanding of oxy-combustion for direct-fired sCO2 power cycles by sharing information or viewpoints from individual participants regarding risk reduction and challenges associated with developing the technology.

This meeting will address challenges associated with oxy-combustion systems in directly heated supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power cycles, such as:

  • Ignition issues
  • Chemical kinetic uncertainties
  • Combustion instability
  • Flowpath design
  • Thermal management
  • Pressure containment
  • Definition/prediction of turbine inlet conditions
  • Off-design operation
  • Transient capabilities
  • In-situ flame monitoring
  • Modeling

The format of the meeting will facilitate equal opportunity for discussion among all participants; all participants will be welcome to speak. Following a detailed presentation by one volunteer participant regarding lessons learned from his or her area of research, other participants will be provided the opportunity to briefly share lessons learned from their own research. Meetings are expected to take place every other month with a different volunteer presenting at each meeting. Meeting minutes shall be published for those who are unable to attend.

Interested parties may RSVP, to confirm their participation and receive login instructions, by emailing Seth.Lawson@netl.doe.gov.
