Exergy analysis of heat exchangers in the copper-chlorine thermochemical cycle to enhance thermal effectiveness and cycle efficiency
Most existing nuclear power plants in North America are typically water-cooled and operate at 250–5008C. For this temperature level, the copper–chlorine (Cu–Cl) cycle is one of the most promisingcycles that can be integrated ...
Design of systems for hydrogen production based on the Cu-Cl thermochemical water decomposition cycle: Configurations and performance
In this study, we analyze several Cu-Cl cycles by examining various design schemes for an overall system and its components, in order to identify potential performance improvements. The factors that determine the number ...
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 ...
