Abstract

In cooperation with HeatPower (www.heatpower.nl) TU/e developes a Rankine Compression Gasturbine (RCG). This system is meant for applications with a power-demand of 1-10 MWe. The main issues are fast system dynamics, high efficiency (with respect to a simple gastubine), easy maintenance of all system components and excellent part load properties. Besides these general advantages the RCG also uses dual-fuel burners, tested for both gasious and liquid fuels. The application of these burnes makes it possible to operate the RCG on numerous bio-fuels. At present the applicability of glycerine (a by-product of bio-diesel production) is tested. In the framework of an STW-valorisation grant, ir. H. Ouwerkerk performs his PhD-study on the design of a demonstration-system of the dual-fuel system.
