This paper presents and discusses the feasible cycles for supplying low-energy-level steam to the desalting flash evaporators of dual-purpose electric-generation and sea-water conversion plants. Cycles which generate electricity as the primary product and desalted water as the byproduct are compared with cycles which produce water as the predominant product and electricity as the byproduct. Investigations include fossil-fueled steam cycles and nuclear-fueled steam cycles at various pressures and temperatures. Determination of the most feasible cycles for various capacity ranges of water production and electrical generation are presented.
