ADVANCED COAL-FIRED POWER CYCLES - ccaps.umn.edu

WHAT IS THE ALLAM CYCLE? The Allam Cycle is any supercritical CO₂Brayton cycle that: – Is oxy-fueled and direct-fired. – Recuperates turbine exhaust. – Uses a heat source in addition to the turbine exhaust. – Utilizes turbine temp >800°C (1000°‒1200°C optimal) – Inlet >80 bar (200‒400 bar optimal).

Mapped: The world's coal power plants in 2019

Coal-fired capacity and generation in China has more or less peaked and will now level off, according to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). Despite all this, the China Electricity Council, which represents the power sector, has proposed raising a cap on coal capacity from 1,100GW in 2020 to 1,300GW in 2030.

SCO2 Power Cycles for Fossil Fuels | Department of Energy

SCO2 Power Cycles for Fossil Fuels. Developing highly efficient and lower-cost, indirectly heated sCO 2 cycles will provide the technology base for more advanced, directly heated sCO 2 cycles for clean fossil energy conversion. In addition, these direct-fired cycles can produce a high-purity stream of carbon dioxide for use/reuse or storage.

Coal steam power plants require more energy input per megawatthour of generation than natural gas-fired combined-cycle plants. Yet, the low cost of coal relative to natural gas until recent years favored the use of coal-fired generating units to fulfill baseload electricity demand, leading plant operators to run these units at rates close to their output capacity during peak demand hours.
