Power plant systems and processes are described that enable recovery of at least a portion of the fuel storage energy associated with a storage system for supplying fuel to the power plant systems. A first embodiment of an energy-recovery power plant system includes at least one fuel storage container and at least one expander that can receive fuel from the fuel storage container at a first pressure and provide the fuel to the power plant at a second pressure that is lower than the first pressure. A second embodiment of an energy-recovery power plant sys...
We claim: 1. A power plant system that can use a fuel that is a gas at ambient temperature and pressure, comprising an energy recovery system that comprises:at least one cryogenic fuel storage container;a first conduit fluidly coupling the fuel storage container and the power plant for delivering fuel from the fuel storage container to the power plant;at least one regenerative thermodynamic cycle engine thermally coupled to the first conduit such that heat may be exchanged between the fuel and a working fluid for the regenerative thermodynamic cycle engi...
