SUPERCHARGED STEAM TURBINE SYSTEMS
FOR RAPID RESPONSE POWER

 

THE RANKINE COMPRESSION GASTURBINE

The RCG  is a supercharged steam turbine system that is offered as an add-on to existing boiler and furnace systems. The RCG provides electrical power (electrical power range 250kW-2MW) for peak shaving operations and can thereby adapt to load changes within seconds. The RCG add-on can be connected to commercial furnaces firing crude fuels, enabling manufacturers to achieve higher resource utilization, reduced cost of electricity and CO2 emission reduction. The 3 primary unique selling points of the RCG add-on are:

RAPID RESPONSE IN SECONDS

Rapid response time of seconds for electrical peak shaving. Typical steam turbine cycles feature a response time of a half to a full hour and are therefore not suitable for peak shaving. The RCG responds in seconds and thereby enables the plant owner to eliminate the peaks in his electrical consumption profile.

POWER BOOST OF 15-35%

Power boost of 15-35% compared to existing steam cycles. Because of the combined cycle technology, the RCG provides 15-35% more electrical power compared to a simple single steam cycle. 

MULTI FUEL AND CRUDE BIOMASS

Multi fuel and crude biomass furnace compatibility. The RCG can be connected to commercially available furnaces firing liquid, gaseous and solid biomass fuels. The RCG provides a flexible electrical power supply, while ensuring a steady flow of steam to the manufacturing processes in the factory.
