Power to gas-oxyfuel boiler hybrid systems
Resumen: One of the main future energy challenges is the management of electrical supply and demand, mainly motivated by the increase of share renewable energy in electricity mix. Thus, energy storage represents a crucial line of research and innovative solutions are currently being proposed. Power to Gas is a technology which stores excess of electrical energy in form of synthetic natural gas through the methanation of hydrogen produced by electrolysis. Methanation requires a source of CO2 which could be provided from the flue gas of an oxyfuel boiler. A further advantage of this hybridization comes from the supply of the oxygen generated by electrolysis to the oxyfuel combustion. In this study the concept is simulated using Aspen Plus® software and the performance of the combined system is analysed through the definition of a size ratio, ¿¿¿¿, that relates the flow of renewable hydrogen produced in electrolyser and the thermal output of the boiler. This variable has allowed defining different ranges of operation for a PtG- oxycombustion hybridized plant. Thus, for ¿¿¿¿ of 1.33, the air separation unit required as an auxiliary element for the oxyfuel boiler becomes unnecessary while if this ratio is increased up to 2.29, flue gas is completely consumed in the methanation plant and converted to synthetic natural gas.
