  • This report contains production costing and fixed charge analyses of the phased installation of gasification combined-cycles. The economic merit of phased GCC's was evaluated both against a variety of hypothetical utility systems and in the context of a variety of fuel forecasts, capital charge assumptions and other input parameters. This report is intended to complement the utility-authored site- and system-specific report (No.AP-5466) on the same subject. 10 figs., 43 tabs.
  • This report was written by seven utility authors from the Utility Coal Gasification Association in collaboration with EPRI. It provides an overview of the economic merit of the phased construction of gasification-combined cycles based upon the production cost evaluations, fixed charge assessments and financial analyses of each of the seven utility authors. Other features of phased GCC construction which affect utility planning decisions are also discussed. 33 figs., 41 tabs.
  • This report describes results of tests using a laser system designed by Coherent Technologies, Inc., in conjunction with Sandia developed nonlinear optics technology. Test results are described for three different optical parametric oscillators built at Sandia. The report concludes with recommendations for future work.
  • This report describes the methods and results used to vitrify a baseline glass, CSLNTM-C-2.5 in support of the AFCI (Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative) using a Quartz Crucible Scale Melter at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Document number AFCI-WAST-PMO-MI-DV-2009-000184.
  • Alloy 617 is a reference structural material for very high temperature components of advanced-gas cooled reactors with outlet temperatures in the range of 900-950°C . In order for designers to be able to use Alloy 617 for these high temperature components, Alloy 617 has to be approved for use in Section III (the nuclear section) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. A plan has been developed to submit a draft code for Alloy 617 to ASME Section III by 2015. However, the current rules in Subsection NH for the evaluation of strain limitsmore » and creep-fatigue damage using simplified methods based on elastic analysis have been deemed inappropriate for Alloy 617 at temperatures above 1200°F (650°C). The rationale for this exclusion is that at higher temperatures it is not feasible to decouple plasticity and creep deformation, which is the basis for the current simplified rules. This temperature, 1200 °F, is well below the temperature range of interest for this material in High Temperature Gas Cooled Reactor (HTGR) applications. The only current alternative is, thus, a full inelastic analysis which requires sophisticated material models which have been formulated but not yet verified. To address this issue, proposed code rules have been developed which are based on the use of elastic-perfectly plastic (EPP) analysis methods and which are expected to be applicable to very high temperatures.« less
