ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) is a Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) solution which delivers additional power from engine exhaust gas energy. Engine type
ORC systems operate on HC based fluids and therefore have not the typical disadvantages of water-based steam turbine systems. Major advantages of ORC are excellent performance at part load and in non-continuous operation. ORC systems can even be applied to utilize low temperature heat sources of 100-200°C. They are simple to operate and require very little maintenance efforts. ORC systems have a compact and modular design and can be included in an existing thermal oil circuit.
