Abstract:

This report assesses the state-of-the-art of commercially available organic Rankine cycle ORC hardware from a literature search and industry survey. Engineering criteria for applying ORC technology are established, and a set of nomograms to enable the rapid sizing of the equipment is presented. A comparison of an ORC system with conventional heat recovery techniques can be made with a nomogram developed for a recuperative heat exchanger. A graphical technique for evaluating the economic aspects of an ORC system and conventional heat recovery method is discussed also included is a description of anticipated future trends in organic Rankine cycle RD.
