Abstract:
Supecritical CO2 power systems are an interesting option to allow the use of low grade thermal sources, especially for small size plants where compactness and costs are of primary importance in order to spread their use and innovative high pressure plate heat exchangers could be used. In this paper a detailed heat transfer model and an analysis related to the optimization of a water-to-CO2 supercritical plate heat exchanger is presented according to the criteria of size minimization and thermal-hydraulic performance enhancement. The assessment based on different plate exchanger geometric configurations is presented to allow design optimization.
