Abstract: An inevitable consequence of the second law of thermodynamics is that any electric power plant that operating on the closed Rankine cycle must reject approximately 60% to 70% of the heat that is added to the cycle through the condenser to the ambient environment in order to complete the cycle. The temperature of the waste heat exiting power plants, while too low for electric power generation, is often suitable for other purposes such as heating greenhouses and aquaculture facilities, particularly those that re… Show more
