Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2016067225A2] An electric power generation apparatus (system) and method for high efficiency energy conversion cycle by recycling latent heat of vaporization is disclosed. In one implementation, the present invention enables to achieve an improved efficiency by reducing the amount of waste heat that is rejected into the atmosphere in existing plant cycle designs by creating multiple turbine cycles where the latent heat of vaporization of the first cycle is injected into the input stage of the second cycle and the waste heat (latent heat of vaporization) of the second cycle into the input stage of the third cycle and so on. Only the waste heat of the final cycle is rejected into the atmosphere.
