gCCS whole-chain system modelling
Screenshots of whole-chain and component flowsheets
The following screenshots provide an idea of the scope of gCCS's application.
The CCS chain is typically assembled as a high-level model. It is possible to 'drill down' to see detail of the individual components (lower screenshot).
The whole-chain schematic showing the various component sub-flowsheets:
Power generation flowsheets
gCCS contains conventional (pulverised coal and combined-cycle gas turbine) and 'new generation' options (oxycoal and gasification) power generation models.
Pulverised coal-fired station:
Combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT):
Post-combustion capture process
gCCS caters for solvent-based capture processes of all kinds.
Amine-based capture process flowsheet:
gCCS provides detailed high-fidelity modelling of compression systems using 1-D, 2-D or dimensionless performance maps (manufacturers' curves).
Four-stage compression system:
Transport and injection
gCCS provides pipeline models of different fidelity, plus well and other injection models.
