The STTR topic N19A-T013 seeks innovative technology to improve the power density and efficiency of propulsion and power generation devices. To address this challenge, Spectral Energies in collaboration with its academic partner Dr. Rory Roberts at Wright State University proposes to develop a compact heat recovery system based on a supercritical CO2 based Rankin Cycle. At the end of the STTR program, the heat recovery system will be capable of generating at least 150KW of power and increase the overall efficiency to at least 55%. The system will have minimal impact on weight and size. To accomplish this work, Spectral Energies has formed a team (Drs. Sivaram Gogineni, Christopher Ruscher, and Rory Roberts) of experts that has a combined experience of 40 years in heat transfer, thermal analysis, system engineering, and product development.
