Formatted Abstract/Summary
Developing highly efficient power blocks holds the key to enhancing the cost competitiveness of
Concentration Solar Thermal (CST) technologies. Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) Brayton cycles have proved promising in
providing equivalent or higher cycle efficiency than supercritical or superheated steam cycles at temperatures and scales
relevant for Australian CST applications. In this study, a techno-economic methodology is developed using a stochastic
approach to determine the ranges for the cost and performance of different components of central receiver power plants
utilizing sCO2 power blocks that are necessary to meet the Australian Solar Thermal Initiative (ASTRI) final LCOE
target of 12 c/kWh.
