Program on Technology Innovation: Feasibility Study to Utilize Waste Heat–Enabled Green Chillers for Power Plant Steam Condensation
This study evaluated the technical and economic feasibility of a power plant dry cooling system concept involving devices called green chillers. Driven by waste heat, green chillers use chilled water to condense turbine exhaust steam and keep condensation temperatures low. The system has a high potential to minimize the power production penalties that come with […]
