CAES Systems Integrated into a Gas-Steam Combined Plant: Design Point Performance Assessment†
AbstractIn the present paper, the performance of an energy storage concept based on the integration of a compressed air energy storage (CAES) system into a gas–steam combined cycle (GSCC) plant is investigated. CAES systems featured by different design specifications have been coupled with a commercially available small size GSCC plant. Storage efficiencies up to 65% have been evaluated for CAES design power output ranging from 5 to 10 MW. A techno-economic analysis aimed at assessing plant performance and investment costs has been performed. Despite the relatively high investment costs and the storage efficiency being less than those featuring alternative storage approaches, the proposed system may be considered of interest due to the long-life duration and the established technologies available for the key plant components.
