Title (EN) THERMOCLINE ARRAYS
(FR) RÉSEAUX DE THERMOCLINES
Abstract:
(EN) Thermocline arrays comprising a plurality of pressure vessels that are in used in place of heat exchangers in a closed thermodynamic cycle system, such as a closed Brayton cycle power generation or energy storage system. Each pressure vessel is configurable to be connected to the working fluid stream or isolated from the working fluid stream.
(FR) L'invention concerne des réseaux de thermoclines comprenant une pluralité de récipients sous pression qui sont utilisés à la place d'échangeurs de chaleur dans un système à cycle thermodynamique fermé, tel qu'un système de génération d'énergie ou de stockage d'énergie à cycle de Brayton fermé. Chaque récipient sous pression peut être conçu pour être relié au flux de fluide de travail ou isolé du flux de fluide de travail.
