As hydrogen continues to dominate discussions about decarbonization and energy security, the fall Sept/Oct 2023 issue of Turbomachinery International features insights from a roundtable of experts and OEMs into hydrogen’s current and projected role in the energy sector.
The fall Sept/Oct 2023 issue of Turbomachinery International features a roundtable of experts and OEMs to offer their points of view and insights into hydrogen’s current and projected role in the energy sector. To further the discussion on hydrogen, a collection of authors from the Elliott Group, Southwest Research Institute, and Venture Global LNG reviews the prospects and challenges of hydrogen compression: Compared to natural gas pipelines, for equivalent energy volumes, hydrogen compression will likely require 5 - 6 times the power, making efficiency in design and the overall footprint requirement key aspects when evaluating various compressor technologies.
Our fall issue also includes coverage from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Turbomachinery Technical Conference & Exposition 2023, which celebrated its 67th year. Our coverage includes a look at gas turbines’ role in decentralized energy systems, technologies for a sustainable future, the potential of hydrogen, and more.
Amin Almasi’s Turbo Tips column, Key Considerations & Risks in the Operation and Control of Compressors, discusses the factors and components—such as disturbance speed, degradation, and the surge curve—that affect the efficiency and functionality of a turbocompressor. And the Myth Busters break down the two types of centrifugal compressor impellers—closed (shrouded) and open (unshrouded)—and why a shroud is necessary given that the vanes are essentially where the energy transfer happens.
