Nitrogen works better, but the efficiency is still pretty lousy.
I've always wondered why one couldn't couple a steam generation system to an internal combustion engine, although I suppose the gains might only be moderate, but much of the wasted energy is in the form of heat.
if you had invented such a device what would you do??
what would be the impact on society if someone had an invention that could cut the volume of steam needed to generate electricity in half,we could use less coal,natural gas, uranium, and oil. and this same technology could be used in hydroelectric dams conserving millians of gallons of water, and in industry ,where air and hydrolic motors are the main source of mechanical power,the posibilities are hard to emagine, if you had invented such a device what would you do??
you would be suprised how hard it has been just trying to find someone who will even listen that is who actualy understands what i'm talking about,
Are you planning a closed-loop or open-loop system. CO2 is only 0.04% in the atmosphere, although available from other more concentrated sources. A closed-loop system would require lots of storage, but then would work with any "refrigerant". including ammonia or propane.
