Abstract
  In this paper, a novel CO2 transcritical power cycle which is driven by solar energy integrated by a cryogenic LNG recovery unit is investigated. In the proposed cycle, the condenser unit of the CO2 power cycle is replaced by a Stirling engine. Thermodynamic and exergy analyses are carried out to evaluate ...  Read More
