Supercritical CO2 Power Cycles Symposium

About the 6th International Symposium - 2018

The Supercritical CO2 Power Cycles Symposium was organized to advance Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (sCO2) power cycle technology. Researchers, industry partners, and end users meet to learn about advancements in the field, discuss priorities, and establish a critical path for technology development.

The objectives of the meeting are to share the status of world developments, discuss feedback on development status and direction from participants, and obtain an integrated view of development priorities. The perspective gained will allow researchers to better coordinate work and allow the participants greater insight into the overall direction of this technology.

Keynote presentations will address big picture development priorities and critical path issues. Technical sessions will address system concepts and development, system modeling and control, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, materials, turbomachinery, electrical generators, and testing. There will be networking opportunities during breaks and meals.
