Next generation CCS technology for combined cycle gas turbine system

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) from CCGT (combine cycle gas turbine) systems is an emerging near-zero emission technology that can applied to new and retrofit CCGT power plants, leading to a substantial reduction in carbon emission to the atmosphere in power generation industry. Read more

The Development of Models for Mercury Oxidation in Oxyfuel Combustion

Oxyfuel combustion is one of the leading technologies for Carbon Capture and Storage. Mercury is released to the gas-phase during oxyfuel combustion of coal and biomass and form trace species in flue-gas. Read more

Modelling post combustion amine CO2 capture plant

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an emerging near-zero emission technology that can applied to next generation gas turbine based power stations, new and retrofit, leading to a substantial reduction in carbon emission to the atmosphere. Read more

Combined Cycle Gas Turbine – CCS; experiment and modelling

This project will combine an experimental and modelling study of a combined cycle gas turbine with CCS. A Turbec T100 gas turbine will be modified to allow the investigation of the effect of exhaust gas recycle and or steam injection on its performance, with measurement of power output and exhaust gas emissions.

Oxy-fuel Power plant design

Conceptual designs for coal-fired power plants seek improved methods of heat and process integration to improve overall plant efficiency using conventional technologies for power generation and oxygen production. Read more

CFD modelling and advanced burner designs

A substantial amount of current activity on oxyfuel combustion capture is still at the conceptual design stage, encompassing a broad range of fuels and power systems, including the development of alternative system configurations that maximize overall efficiency and minimize estimated capital and operating costs. Read more

Analysis of post-combustion CO2 capture from natural gas power plants using CFD and process co-simulation

The use of natural gas as a fuel for electricity production is expected to gradually increase in the next decades. Since it is acknowledged that large CO2 emission cuts should be achieved in the near future, it seems plausible that these systems may have to be coupled to CO2 capture schemes. Read more

Dynamic simulation of power generation plant for carbon capture and storage

The new generation of power plants should offer effective solutions to reduce emissions and implement CO2 capture and storage. However, the combination of a complex fuel-processing plant and the level of integration lead to challenging problems with respect to the dynamic/transient operation. Read more

Advanced virtual reality future power plant dynamic simulations

This project aims to combine computational fluid dynamics, chemical process modelling and virtual system simulation techniques to develop a dynamic modelling tool for power plant performance simulations. Read more
