It’s #ThrowbackThursday and we’re sharing one of our past webinars called “Green Energy – Turbomachinery for Organic Rankine Cycles.”
Growing global demand for energy coupled with environmental concerns from the prevalence of fossil fuel usage has created a strong demand for new sources of clean energy. This demand has inspired scientists and engineers to search for and propose new solutions to generate greener, cleaner energy. One of the new methodologies which has been proposed is generating electricity from low temperature heat sources, the Organic Rankine Cycle being among the most widely used. Such popularity encouraged innovation in the area, and inspiring various design modifications in conjunction with low temperature heat sources and with a wide range of power rates.
In this webinar, the SoftInWay team discusses the key aspects of green energy generation utilizing ORC. This includes some fundamental aspects of ORC design and operation as well as detailed design of the power unit components which can be performed by our engineering team. SoftInWay has supported a number of companies by providing detailed ORC Turbine flow path design using the software tool AxSTREAM™.
Items covered in webinar:
- Modern world green energy demand
- ORC overview and comparison
- Organic working fluids
- ORC turbine design aspects and possible solutions
- SoftInWay’s engineering team capabilities in ORC design.
- Detailed flow path design process in AxSTREAM™
