Abstract

Waste heat recovery systems are used to convert unused heat to other forms of usable energy. One method is to use the exhaust energy in power generation systems to generate a cooling effect. For example, a turbocompression cooling system (TCCS) uses low grade waste heat to power a recuperative Rankine cycle that directly drives the compressor in a vapor compression cycle. The evaporator of the vapor-compression cycle generates a cooling effect used to off-set cooling loads, produce air conditioning, or satisfy other cooling needs. In the present study, experimental results from a TCCS designed to offload cooling requirements in a Natural Gas Combined Cycle power plant are presented. These data will be used in future efforts to validate a system model that predicts its performance, which will provide insight to predict the TCCS performance at cooling loads required at full power plant scales.
