Flexible Converters

Flexible Converters with reduced CO2 emission

The operation of conventional power plants is more and more characterized by load alteration due to the increasing implementation of energy from renewable sources with high volatility caused by weather. Classical energy converters for electrical power generation, in industrial processes or for transport require dramatic modifications to meet future challenges of a continuous transition process from a carbon based energy economy to renewable sources.

The following are the objectives for this Energy Integration Research Platform:

  • Increased system performance of converters
  • Understanding unsteady operation of converters
  • Understanding the characteristics of mixed fuel supply including designer fuels based on biomass or solar fuels
  • Development of efficient CCS removal technologies
