Project description The goal of this joint research project is the analysis of innovative Organic Rankine Processes (ORC) for application in the field of industrial waste heat. Heat from production processes in the temperature range of 75°C - 500°C, waste heat from combined heat and power generation plants as well as heat from renewable energy production are to all be used increasingly in the future by ORC plants for the production of electricity. Research is necessary in order to determine the minimum usable temperatures, additional fuel feed, if necessary, fitting of heat exchangers as well as in the field of small-capacity machine development. As part of the project, layout design tools and dynamic simulation systems based on measured data are being developed, that enable detailed system planning and energy efficiency calculations.
