Title:
MIXED WORKING FLUID POWER SYSTEM WITH INCREMENTAL VAPOR GENERATION
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2003008767
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A power generating system (110) comprising a heat source (116) and an incremental vapor generator system (112) operatively associated with the heat source (116). The incremental vapor generator system (112) includes a first heating section (136) and a second heating section (138). The first heating section (136) receives a mixed working fluid (114) and generates a first heated working fluid stream comprising a vapor portion (120) and a liquid portion. The second heating section (138) is operatively associated with the first heating section (136) and receives the liquid portion from the first heated working fluid stream. The second heating section (138) generates a second heated working fluid system stream comprising a vapor portion (122). An energy conversion device (126) operatively associated with the incremental vapor generator system (112) converts into useful work heat energy contained in the vapor portion (120, 122) of the first and second heated working fluid streams.
