Prospective Schemes of Aluminum–Hydrogen Thermal Power Plants

Various methods are considered for the production of useful electric and thermal energy based the use of a steam–hydrogen mixture with parameters corresponding to the parameters upon the exit of hydrothermal oxidation of aluminum from an experimental reactor developed earlier at the Joint Institute for High Temperatures of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The appropriate types of basic power-generating equipment that operate on hydrogen are chosen. The main thermodynamic parameters of the schemes of thermal power plants are analyzed, and their thermodynamic efficiency is determined.
