Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC)
systems are used for power production from low to medium temperature heat sources in the range of 80 to 350 °C and for small-medium applications at any temperature level. This technology allows for exploitation of low-grade heat that otherwise would be wasted.
Working principal and applications
The power system converts low- and moderate-temperature （80-340℃） hot fluids like water into electricity, based on a thermodynamic cycle known as the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC).
