For the past few days I've been mulling over a suitable subject for a paper to submit to IYNC 2006 (www.iync.org).
Although I work for OPG my current training rotation is not conducive to writing a paper so, by nessecity, I need to write it on my own.
As I was browsing my thermo text book they showed the combined brayton-rankine cycle in an idealized fashion where the source of heat in the gas turbine was not fossil fueled but merely Qdotin.
The obvious focus I want to explore is why can't this heat be provided by Uranium??
Replace the steam generator with a D20-gas heat exchanger and go from there.
Before I embark on this bold new journey I thought I'd ask if somebody has looked into this in the past...I'm assuming yes but hopefully no since the scope of my paper would have to be very idealized.
Anyway, if you know of such a published investigation I'd appreciate knowing about it!
