Gallery: Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Powered Brayton Cycle Turbine to ...

 

While one can always look for new sources of renewable energy, there is a lot to be said for simply improving the efficiency of current systems. That is what researchers at the Sandia National Laboratories are working on by developing a gas turbine system that should increase thermal-to-electric conversion efficiency by as much as 50 percent. This could see a dramatic improvement for nuclear powered stations, which use steam turbines to generate energy.
