Supercritical CO2 Brayton for Compact High Efficiency Power Generation

Sandia National Laboratories, New Mexico, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Sandia National Laboratories is developing a thermal-to-electric power conversion technology in a configuration called the recompression closed Brayton cycle (RCBC). The closed Brayton cycle is a proven power technology that uses carbon dioxide as opposed to seam, thereby increasing conversion efficiency compared to the steam Rankine cycle.
