Pagination or Media Count:
An Organic Rankine Cycle generator ORC converts low-grade waste heat 250 deg C into electric power using organic working fluids with lower boiling points than the common steam-based Rankine cycle. The demonstration objectives were to verify the performance, economics and applicability of the ElectraTherm ORC in both controlled load and real world conditions at a DoD site.
