Testing of A 10 MWE Supercritical CO2 Turbine
MetadataShow full item record
A new high temperature turbine was developed for use a sCO2 closed-loop recompression Brayton cycle. This turbine was developed for Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) applications (700+C), but its application includes traditional heat sources such as natural gas, coal, and nuclear power. The SCO2 cycle can approach 50% thermal efficiency using externally fired heat sources. Furthermore, this cycle is also well suited for bottoming cycle waste heat recovery applications. This paper describes the design, commissioning, and initial testing of the10 MWe turbine in a 1 MWe test facility.
