Systems Integration and Optimization

The supercritical CO2 power cycle can be integrated with the fossil energy heat source in various configurations. Optimal integration and process operating conditions must be identified to achieve high efficiency and lower cost electricity generation. Systems integration and optimization work focuses on overall system analyses, modeling, and engineering to integrate and design the sCO2 power cycle for optimized performance (efficiency), cost, and operability.

NETL supports several Systems Integration and Optimization Projects.
