A system model of open Rankine cycle ocean thermal energy conversion (OC-QTEC) was used to examine the effects of component performance and design on plant cost.

Three components are examined in detail: an optional seawater deaeration subsystem, the flash evaporator, and a two-stage direc.t­ contact condenser. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is a promising renewable energy technology which exploits the thermal gradient between warm, surface seawater and deep, cold seawater to generate electricity [1].

During the operation of an OTEC plant, seawater intake pipes will draw warm water from 20m depth and cold water from m. After moving through. Existing Facility • land acres • 38 buildings • M sq.
