Abstract: The semi-closed oxy-fuel gas turbine cycle has been suggested in (Ulizar and Pilidis, 1997) as an alternative for power production with CO2 capture capabilities. This article is concerned with two critical design decisions for a similar process. Optimizations are used on a simulation model to evaluate part load performance for four different control structures. Finally a model predictive controller is implemented for each of the structures, and closed loop simulations are used to assess the different control structures.

Oct 2018: MIC reaches 3000 DOI Forward Links. The last 1000 took 2 years and 5 months.

May 2016: MIC reaches 2000 DOI Forward Links. The first 1000 took 34 years, the next 1000 took 2.5 years.

July 2015: MIC's new impact factor is now 0.778. The number of papers published in 2014 was 21 compared to 15 in 2013, which partially explains the small decrease in impact factor.

Aug 2014: For the 3rd year in a row MIC's impact factor increases. It is now 0.826.

Dec 2013: New database-driven web-design enabling extended statistics. Article number 500 is published and MIC reaches 1000 DOI Forward Links.
