Comparative Analysis of Power Plants Using Low Potential Heat of Liquefied Natural Gas（LNG）
摘要：The idea of using low-potential energy of cryogenic liquids has recently become more widespread. This is primarily due to the increasing production of cryogenic substances, as well as the general trend of energy saving and the energy potential existing in the cryoproduct in the form of energy previously used for its liquefaction. Low-potential energy is the energy of a colder environment, having the same pressure as the consumer’s energy converter. Currently, one of the most frequently used cryogenic substances is liquefied natural gas（LNG）, and methods of regasification and use continue to improve. This paper proposes a method for a comparative analysis of the use of liquefied natural gas as a working fluid, a study of the efficiency of the regasification process. The main parameters of energy installations were calculated and the main advantages and disadvantages were identified on the basis of the results, and the most optimal one was selected.
