Abstract:

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) needs to be gasified before supplied to the users, and considerable amount of cold energy, about 830 kJ/kg, will be released during this process. Recovery of LNG cold energy bears significance of energy-saving and environmental protection. Among the many ways of using LNG cold energy, power generation is the most effective and suitable one for large-scale applications. Many novel power generation cycles have been designed for utilizing LNG cold energy so far. This paper reviews the recent researches on LNG cold energy utilization in power generation, and discusses 15 novel power generation cycles utilizing LNG cold energy.


Keywords:Liquefied natural gas, cold energy, power generation.
