In various embodiments, a mechanical assembly and/or storage vessel is fluidly coupled to a circulation apparatus for receiving pressurized heat-transfer fluid from an outlet at a first elevated pressure, boosting a pressure of the heat-transfer fluid to a second pressure larger than the first pressure, and returning heat-transfer fluid to an inlet at a third pressure.
1. A method of energy storage and recovery, the method comprising: at least one of storing, expanding, or compressing a gas at an elevated pressure within a cylinder assembly having an inlet and an outlet;circulating a heat-transfer fluid through the gas at the elevated pressure;increasing a pressure of the heat-transfer fluid to a second pressure higher than the elevated pressure with a pumping system; andthereafter, introducing heat-transfer fluid into the gas at a pressure ranging from approximately the elevated pressure to approximately the second pr...
