Advanced Cogeneration
O2 enriched air for diesels; H2O emulsified in fuel; low-grade fuels. Research stage results: increased power, reduced particulates, but increased NOx. Dupont is looking at membranes to produce O2.
HPSS (High performance steam system) hi pressure hi temp steam bottoming cycle for GT--DOE and Solar Turbine Co.: Overall electric efficiency 55%, with flexible electricity/heat ratio. They are looking for industrial cogen demo site. Can also be used for stand-alone once-thru boiler--unique turbine, thick wall tubes in hi-temp section prevents H2 corrosion. Also has a tool/method to estimate "value" of steam from Cogen--> better pricing. (DU, Distributed Utility)
