Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) Power Systems : Technologies and Applications, Hardback Book

Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) Power Systems : Technologies and Applications Hardback

Edited by Ennio (Politecnico di Milano, Italy) Macchi, Marco (Politecnico di Milano, Italy) Astolfi


Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) Power Systems: Technologies and Applications provides a systematic and detailed description of organic Rankine cycle technologies and the way they are increasingly of interest for cost-effective sustainable energy generation.

Popular applications include cogeneration from biomass and electricity generation from geothermal reservoirs and concentrating solar power installations, as well as waste heat recovery from gas turbines, internal combustion engines and medium- and low-temperature industrial processes.

With hundreds of ORC power systems already in operation and the market growing at a fast pace, this is an active and engaging area of scientific research and technical development. The book is structured in three main parts: (i) Introduction to ORC Power Systems, Design and Optimization, (ii) ORC Plant Components, and (iii) Fields of Application.
