The SCARABEUS consortium (University of Seville, University of Brescia, Politecnico di Milano and LEAP) has just published in Energy journal their recent research in the area of cycle performance. This research paper provides a through analysis of the underpinning reasons why the utilization of mixtures enables higher maximum (thermal) efficiency and it also reveals the […]
D4.3 Public report on the heat transfer characteristics using CO2 blends
SCO2-Flex Final Event: The Role of sCO2 cycles in Europe’s future energy system On the 16th June 2021 the Sco2-Flex project will host its final event to present the results of the project and also introduce 5 other Horizon 2020 projects working with sco2 technology. In the context of the EU’s energy transition, the last few […]
The 4th edition of the European sCO2 Conference for Energy Systems, held virtually on March 23-24, gathered some forty excellent works presented by international authors. The number of attendees and quality of works presented confirmed that the sCO2 community is vibrant and the future of the technology looks bright. A number of very interesting papers […]
One of the major goals of the SCARABEUS project is to show the feasibility of the innovative air cooled condenser (ACC) through experiments in Vienna. This heat exchanger is a crucial component in the proposed technology by enabling dry cooling in warm areas where one would typically find Concentrated Solar Power plants. For down-sizing and […]
This year, most conferences have made the decision to go virtual in order to circumvent the limitations on mobility brought about by COVID-19. SolarPACES has been no different in this regard but the Wednesday’s plenary session, chaired by Ana María Ruiz Frías (Solar Committee Chile), focused on CSP Technology Innovation. All continents […]
Quantis is leading the environmental Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) assessment to evaluate the innovative SCARABEUS technology for CSP application with the objectives to (i) inform the key environmental performance indicator of the SCARABEUS technology development; (ii) to guide the development of the technology towards a more sustainable solution; (iii) to benchmark the SCARABEUS technology against […]
During the last months, IET concentrated on design tasks according to work package 4, where pre-tests for the design of the air-cooled condenser (ACC) and the recuperator (printed circuit heat exchanger) are planned. Therefor several modifications of the test rig are necessary, see Figure 1: Figure 1: Modifications of test rig at IET. Grey: […]
