  • The Scurry Area Canyon Reef Operators Committee (SACROC) Unit is in the second year of a carbon dioxide miscible flood that is the largest secondary recovery project of this type ever undertaken. To accomplish this flood, over 35 million tons of carbon dioxide will be used for injection into the reservoir. The total cost of the project when finalized will be in excess of $175,000,000. This cost includes purchase of CO/sub 2/, conversion of over 200 producing wells to CO/sub 2/ injectors, expansion of surface facilities, and the construction and operation of the CO/sub 2/ pipeline-compression system. The magnitude andmore » innovative nature of the project has demanded a major engineering, planning, and design effort involving the coordination of many fields of engineering and various technical specialties. This work gives a brief account of the overall CO/sub 2/ delivery facilities to include the basic design considerations and some of the studies that were conducted for each aspect of the project.« less
  • A one-dimensional, non-isothermal, pressure-driven dynamic model has been developed for a two-stage bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) adsorber-reactor for solid-sorbent carbon dioxide (CO{sub 2}) capture using Aspen Custom Modeler┬« (ACM). The BFB model for the flow of gas through a continuous phase of downward moving solids considers three regions: emulsion, bubble, and cloud-wake. Both the upper and lower reactor stages are of overflow-type configuration, i.e., the solids leave from the top of each stage. In addition, dynamic models have been developed for the downcomer that transfers solids between the stages and the exit hopper that removes solids from the bottom ofmore » the bed. The models of all auxiliary equipment such as valves and gas distributor have been integrated with the main model of the two-stage adsorber reactor. Using the developed dynamic model, the transient responses of various process variables such as CO{sub 2} capture rate and flue gas outlet temperatures have been studied by simulating typical disturbances such as change in the temperature, flowrate, and composition of the incoming flue gas from pulverized coal-fired power plants. In control studies, the performance of a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller, feedback-augmented feedforward controller, and linear model predictive controller (LMPC) are evaluated for maintaining the overall CO{sub 2} capture rate at a desired level in the face of typical disturbances.« less
  • Part 2 describes the basic mechanical design of the two-stage collector, including the thermal performance. The design should be applicable to Gaussian mode gyrotrons over a very broad frequency range at power levels up to one megawatt CW. Part 2 also describes an innovative regenerative power supply system that utilizes highly efficient, solid state, switching technology that provides high reliability and significantly reduced cost over conventional technology. An advanced computer control system that will provide user-friendly gyrotron operation and allow modes of operation not possible with manual operation is also being developed.
  • Aeroengines operate in regimes for which both rotating stall and surge impose low-flow operability limits. Thus, active control strategies designed to enhance operability of aeroengines must address both rotating stall and surge as well as their interaction. In this paper, a previously developed nonlinear control strategy that achieves simultaneous active control of rotating stall and surge is applied to a high-speed three-stage axial flow compression system with operating parameters representative of modern aeroengines. The controller is experimentally validated for two compressor builds and its robustness to radial distortion assessed. For actuation, the control strategy utilizes an annulus-averaged bleed valve withmore » bandwidth on the order of the rotor frequency. For sensing, measurements of the circumferential asymmetry and annulus-averaged unsteadiness of the flow through the compressor are used. Experimental validation of simultaneous control of rotating stall and surge in a high-speed environment with minimal sensing and actuation requirements is viewed as another important step toward applying active control to enhance operability of compression systems in modern aeroengines.« less
  • The authors have developed a two stage magnetic pulse compression (MPC) system by optimizing the distribution of the compression ratio at each stage. The maximum energy transfer efficiency of the MPC was 88%. With this MPC and SI thyristors they obtained the CVL output power of 103 W at a repetition rate of 5 kHz.
