A Quasi-dimensional Numerical Investigation of the Scroll Expander of an Organic Rankine Cycle Unit

Scroll compressors are often used in air conditioning and refrigeration systems thanks to their high efficiency, low noise and vibrations, light weight and high reliability. Scrolls are also widely

INFLUENCE OF RADIAL CLEARANCES ON THE AERODYNAMIC PERFORMANCE OF ORC SCROLL EXPANDERS MADE OF VARIABLE WALL THICKNESSES

Higher efficiencies and more compact designs in spite of larger built-in volume ratios are associated with variable wall thickness scroll expander geometries. In this research paper, transient 3D CFD

Performance Analysis of Scroll Compressor for Air Conditioners

In this study, a series of semi-circles were employed for the scroll walls. The compression process was investigated geometrically, and then the forces acting on the orbiting scroll were calculated.

Experimental characterization of a hermetic scroll expander for use in a micro-scale Rankine cycle

This paper presents the results of an experimental study carried out on a prototype of a hermetic scroll expander, integrated into a gas cycle test rig, whose working fluid is HFC-245fa. This system

Parametric Representation of Scroll Geometry with Variable Wall Thickness

In a scroll-type compressor, compression is achieved by relative contact between two spiral curves. Since the scroll invention by Leon Creux in (1905) multiple methods have been developed for

Theory and Application of Alternative Scroll Geometries

An alternate approach is discussed in which both scrolls are determined from the same curve, allowing a formulation that is general, simple, symmetrical, and has features convenient for design engineering.

General Geometrical Model of Scroll Compression Chamber for Scroll Fluid Machine

For a scroll fluid machine with an arbitrary number of scroll wraps on its individual scroll, the phase difference between adjacent scroll profiles on one scroll is defined as the characteristic

Experimental performance of a compliant scroll expander for an organic Rankine cycle

Abstract A small-scale scroll expander was developed and tested. The expander was based on a compliant scroll compressor having a displacement of ∼6.8 cm3. A test loop was also developed for
