Integrated solar combined cycle (ISCC) systems

J. Zachary,     Bechtel Corp., USA

Abstract:

This chapter discusses the integrated solar combined cycle (ISCC). By including an additional source of heat, such as solar energy, to conventional combined cycles, the efficiency of systems is dramatically increased. The chapter examines various arrangements of integration and their impact on performance and cost. The discussion also addresses the thermodynamic optimization process for identifying the most appropriate locations where all heat transfer processes take place for different solar thermal technologies (tower, trough, linear Fresnel).
