Desert OTEC
« on: February 29, 2008, 04:22:51 AM »
Familiar with Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion?  Why not use the difference between the dry bulb temperature and the wet bulb temperature of warm, dry air to operate a similar system?  A 40 deg. F temperature difference can be achieved with 10% R.H.  and 100 deg. F ambient air.  In theory it works, anyone heard of such a thing?  Thanks.

I like the idea of using the difference between the water temperature and air temperature in the Artic to build some kind of OTEC system.

The water can be more than 40 degrees Celsius warmer than the air there...
