EPPEI Attends 2017 NSF-EPRI Power Plant Dry Cooling Science and Technology Innovation Program Annual Review Meeting

From May 16th to 18th, Electric Power Research Institute organized the 2017 NSF-EPRI Power Plant Dry Cooling Science and Technology Innovation Program Annual Review Meeting in Palo Alto, California. EPPEI was invited to attend the meeting.



The conference was jointly organized by EPRI and NSF, gathering more than 50 industry experts from the United States, France, Germany, Australia, China, Iran, South Africa and other countries. During the meeting, the experts from Stanford university, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Maryland, College Park, the University of South Carolina, Drexel University etc, delivered 10 presentations about low back pressure technology in dry cooling system, phase change medium of the middle coolant in air cooling technology, air side heat transfer strengthening technology in dry cooling condenser, lateral steam condensation heat transfer strengthening technology, and the participants were fully engaged in open communication and sharing of knowledge and techniques. In this meeting, EPPEI learned about international power plant dry cooling technology frontier research results and EPRI dry cooling technology innovation projects, and communicated with the experts from EPRI and other organization. EPRI showed keen interest in the role EPPEI played in the electric power development in China, and hoped cooperating and exchanging information with EPPEI on dry cooling technology application.

 From May 19th to 20th, EPPRI delegates visited the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating Project which was a concentrated solar thermal plant in the Mojave Desert, and was arranged a technical communication with the experts of BrightSource Energy, primarily for the engineering review, evaluation and consultation for solar thermal plant projects in China.


Professionals from Power Generation Engineering Department of EPPEI attended the conference and relevant activities.
