Could you potentially pressurize a dinitrogen tetroxide loop and use it as a disassociating rankine cycle? Does the attached make sense? The thermal phase change should cause the condenser to work more efficiently, right?



Not all the gains are efficiency gains, in fact the low fuel cost of nuclear may mean that lower capital costs are what drive economics! (In as much as inefficiencies dont raise up costs of system components, which they may will)
