Abstract

The use of SuperCritical Water-cooled Reactor (SCWR) process heat for the thermochemical production of hydrogen is investigated. The objective of this work is to complete a heat transfer analysis on an intermediate counter-flow double-pipe heat exchanger (HX) to be used for hydrogen cogeneration. In this work the thermal energy requirements for the 4-stage thermochemical CopperChlorine (Cu-Cl) are identified. A numerical model is developed using MATLAB and a sensitivity analysis is performed. The sensitivity analysis is performed to determine the effect certain parameter changes will have on the overall size of the HX when compared against an initial reference case.
