COMPONENTS’ AND MATERIALS’ PERFORMANCE FOR ADVANCED SOLAR SUPERCITICAL CO2 POWERPLANTS

Project description

Particle-alloy combinations to face extreme operating conditions

In the envisaged solar-Brayton cycle, supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) is used as working media. Concentrated solar radiation is absorbed and stored in solid particles until the heat is transferred to the sCO2. Unique properties of sCO2 (such as high density and low viscosity) allow reaching high efficiency of the energy conversion and very compact design of the components compared to conventional Rankine steam cycle. The EU-funded COMPASsCO2 project will integrate solar energy into sCO2 Brayton cycles for electricity production. The project will design, test and model tailored particle-alloy combinations able to face the extreme operating conditions regarding temperature, pressure, abrasion, oxidation and corrosion during the plant lifetime. Testing of the particle-sCO2 heat exchanger will validate the innovative materials developed.
