Abstract:

Nuclear desalination of seawater has been identified as one of the affordable means of fresh water production. However this can only be achieved by the design of energy efficient desalination systems. This study focused on cycle analysis of the cogeneration nuclear power plant. A theoretical model of the Thermo Vapour Compression (TVC) desalination process was also developed and coupled to the cogeneration nuclear power plant. The modeled coupled system was developed on the computer code, NUCDES using FORTRAN language to investigate the effect of design and operating parameters on parameters controlling the cost of producing fresh water from TVC process. The results showed that the performance of the TVC desalination process and the efficiency of the cogeneration nuclear power improve with the motive steam pressure.
