Enhancement of Geothermal, Nuclear, Single-Axis Tracking Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), Solid Biomass and Fossil Fueled Power-Plant Thermal Efficiencies
Abstract: "High thermal efficiencies imply a reduced nuclear waste legacy, lower carbon footprint and less expense in regards to the production cost of electrical power. Financial savings (made by electricity suppliers) may be passed on to the consumer"
The thermal efficiency of a power-plant is the measure of the quantity of useful electrical power that can be generated from the available quantity of heating power of said power-plant's heat-source. Strictly speaking, it is the mechanical power of the power-plant's rotating turbine-blades divided by the rate at which heat is extracted from the heat-source.
Thermodynamics (The branch of the physical sciences that pertain to the flow of heat amongst other things!) states that the Carnot efficiency (Maximum theoretical efficiency of a heat-engine or power-plant) increases with the difference between heat-source and heat-sink temperatures.
For example: The heat-source of a nuclear power-plant is the nuclear reactor, and the heat-sink of said plant may be its environment such as its closest ocean, sea or river. As another example; the heat-source of a geothermal power-plant is the geothermal resource (usually deep below the Earth's surface), and again, the heat-sink of said plant may be its environment or closest ocean, sea or river .
High thermal efficiencies imply the requirement of less nuclear fuel for nuclear power-plants, less fossil fuels for fossil-fuel burning power-plants, less biomass for biomass-burning power-plants, less waste for waste-burning power-plants, less land utilisation for concentrated solar power (CSP) plants, less depth required to drill boreholes for geothermal power-plants and therefore, in general, less expense in regards to the production cost of electrical power. Financial savings (made by electricity suppliers) may be passed on to the consumer. As a species, our environmental impact can be minimised as well as the impending energy crisis; postponed. In order to maximise power-plant thermal efficiencies and realise the aforesaid benefits, existing thermal power plants must operate at higher-temperatures.
The Thermal Efficiency Enhancing Unit (TEEU) first embodiment (mark I) is one of five TEEU embodiments filed as patent applications supported by funding secured by Innovate UK formerly known as the Technology Strategy Board (TSB). TEEU mark I was filed as patent application GB1301890.8 on 4th February 2013 and the application claiming priority from it GB1304570.3 filed 14th March 2013. GB1304570.3 is the 21st of Dr Quaw's filed Intellectual Property Generations (qipGen._021).
