Abstract

A technique for an oxy-fuel power cycle with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture at intercooler pressure is disclosed. The CO2 emission reduction technique described herein, uses highly concentrated oxygen, for example, concentrated to 95-99 % O2, for combustion and use of the combustion gases as the cycle working fluid. Oxygen is mixed into the working fluid at lower pressure upstream of the combustor, and CO2 is separated favorably throughout the compression.
