estimates showing costs for major plant components, subsystems, plant sections, and the complete plant will be prepared. FY11-FY15

Players: industry, universities, national labs, FETC

Milestones:

  • Complete commercial plant designs (FY15)

  • Complete cost analyses (FY15)

d. Virtual Demonstration Capability

1. Simulate component/subsystem performance. The virtual demonstration capability developed in program element IIIb and as part of the enabling technologies (program elements IIa-h.) activities will be used to simulate the performance of components and subsystems of Vision 21 plants. FY08-FY10

Players: industry, universities, national labs, FETC

Milestones:

  • Conduct virtual demonstrations of components and subsystems (FY10)

2. Simulate commercial-scale plant performance. Virtual demonstrations of commercial-scale Vision 21 plants will be conducted. These demonstrations will illustrate equipment configuration and orientation and include details of plant operation, including dynamic response to changes in load, variations in feedstock properties, changes in component or subsystem operation, and upset conditions. FY12-FY15

Players: industry, universities, national labs, FETC

Milestones:

  • Conduct virtual demonstration of complete Vision 21 plant (FY15)
