A cycle is proposed in which no condenser cooling water is required. Turbine back-pressure is kept to conventional levels by condensing the steam during the evaporation of a refrigerant. Heat is rejected from the refrigerating loop in air coolers. Application of this concept to an 826 MW fossil-fueled power station shows the anticipated increases in heat rate and capital cost.
