Organic Rankine Cycles (ORC) are thermodynamic power cycles designed to generate work from low temperature heat sources. The low temperature heat input is, typically, between 80 °C to 270 °C. The efficiency of an ORC is highly dependent on the expander characteristics. This article experimentally evaluates the performance of a scroll expander with nominal… CONTINUE READING
