1 of 3
Authored by authoritative experts in the field, this long–awaited book provides multidisciplinary insights into the technological, economic, design, and optimization aspects of organic Rankine cycle (ORC) systems.

Following an introduction presenting the fundamentals of Rankine cycles and thermodynamics, subsequent chapters discuss ORC technology, including the selection of working fluid, the expansion machines and pumps, and the applications of ORC. A chapter on modeling, optimizing and controlling ORC systems is also included. The book concludes with a look at future technological advances.

For newcomers to this hot topic as well as experts in industry already working with the technology, from organic chemistry via simulation and modeling to power plant engineers.
