Group: Fluid-dynamics of turbomachines

Organic Rankine cycles gained a relevant role in power production from low to medium temperature sources and for low to medium plant size. Recently, several experimental research projects were developed, to better understand the fundamental physics and plant components functioning. Indeed, the underlying physics and the functioning of such components differ from the one of steam Rankine cycle components, mainly due to the different nature of the organic fluid. The thesis work consists of a literature research and analysis on projects about ORC applications (turbines, pump, heat exchangers, thermal stability of organic fluids). The student will be assisted by the CREA Lab team. | More info: andrea.spinelli@polimi.it
