Waste heat driven turbo-compression cooling
Waste heat recovery systems utilize exhaust heat from power generation systems to produce mechanical work, provide cooling, or create high temperature thermal energy. One waste heat recovery application is to use the exhaust heat from a Natural Gas Combined Cycle Power Plant (NGCC) to drive a heat activated cooling system that can offset a portion of the plant condenser load. There are several heat activated cooling systems available including absorption, adsorption, ORVC, and ejector, but each has disadvantages. One system that can overcome the disadvantages of typical heat activated cooling ...
