Exergy analysis of heat exchangers in the copper–chlorine thermochemical cycle to enhance thermal effectiveness and cycle efficiency
(Oxford University Press, 2011)
Most existing nuclear power plants in North America are typically water-cooled and operate at 250–500°C. For this temperature level, the copper–chlorine (Cu–Cl) cycle is one of the most promising cycles that can be integrated ...
Process simulation and analysis of a five-step copper–chlorine thermochemical water decomposition cycle for sustainable hydrogen production
A process model of a five-step copper–chlorine (Cu–Cl) cycle is developed and simulated with the Aspen Plus simulation code. Energy and mass balances, stream flows and properties, heat exchanger duties, and shaft work are ...
Investigation of an integrated hydrogen production system based on nuclear and renewable energy sources: a new approach for sustainable hydrogen production via copper–chlorine thermochemical cycles
Hydrogen production via thermochemical water decomposition is a potential process for direct utilization of nuclear thermal energy to increase efficiency and thereby facilitate energy savings. Thermochemical water splitting ...
Design and simulation of a UOIT copper–chlorine cycle for hydrogen production
A design and simulation study of the four-step copper–chlorine (Cu–Cl) cycle using Aspen Plus software (Aspen Technology Inc., Cambridge, MA)is reported. The simulation consists of four main sections: hydrolysis, ...
