Title (EN) USE OF REGENERATOR IN THERMODYNAMIC CYCLE SYSTEM
(FR) UTILISATION D'UN RÉGÉNÉRATEUR DANS UN SYSTÈME À CYCLE THERMODYNAMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Closed thermodynamic cycle systems, such as closed Brayton cycle systems, with regenerative heat exchangers are disclosed. Embodiments include dual regenerators and regenerators with buffer tank systems. Regenerators may be used instead of or in addition to one or more recuperators within the systems, and may be used as a means of gas-gas heat exchange for different streams of a working fluid.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes à cycle thermodynamique fermé, tels que des systèmes à cycle de Brayton fermé, avec des échangeurs de chaleur régénératifs. Des modes de réalisation comprennent des régénérateurs doubles et des régénérateurs avec des systèmes de réservoir tampon. Des régénérateurs peuvent être utilisés au lieu en plus d'un ou de plusieurs récupérateurs au sein des systèmes, et peuvent être utilisés comme moyen d'échange de chaleur gaz-gaz pour différents flux d'un fluide de travail.
