Acronym: ORC- micro power plant
Time Period: From 2011 to 2013
Total Budget: €324 400
Financing: National Funded, Bayerische Forschungsstiftung (BFS)
Several studies verify a high potential for waste heat recovery by decentralized power systems. In this context the project partners develop an ORC-module with an electric capacity below 50 kW. Therefore an innovative micro-turbine and direct evaporation of the working fluid are realized. Fluid selection and component design are followed by the construction of a demonstration rig with an electric capacity of 20 kW.
