The VAST Power Cycles incorporate wet combustion and water recovery and recycling to:
- Replace excess air with recycled water.
- Increase component life.
- Increase efficiencies.
- Improve economics.
- Increase net power.
- Lower emissions.
Through extensive modeling, VAST has been able to demonstrate that the VAST Cycles can achieve substantial benefits from distributed generation and combine heat and power (DG/CHP) to baseload applications. With specific designs, the VAST Cycles are excellent peaker plants in light of their ability to maintain good efficiencies over a broad range of loads.
