Progress of Closed-Cycle OTEC and Study of a New Cycle of OTEC

Abstract:

Article Preview

OTEC has the advantages of large reserves, renewable, stable and clean without pollution. However the smaller ocean temperature-difference results in the lower thermal efficiency. Based on the research of Rankine cycle, Kalina cycle, Uehara cycle, a new closed-cycle system (GuoHai cycle) has been studied, this cycle system uses ammonia-water mixtures as working medium. Indirect regenerative cycle and poor ammonia solution regenerative cycle is adopted in order to improve the thermal efficiency of the system.
