To succeed in reaching the ambitious sustainability goals in energy production, many different renewable energy sources are investigated. Nowadays great attention is devoted towards the economically exploitation of freely available low-temperature heat sources and the organic Rankine cycle (ORC) technology is one of the most promising power technologies for the exploitation of such. To put the developed theory into practice, an experimental ORC test rig is set up at the DTU MEK laboratories.

The objective of the project is to design a flexible experimental set-up for small-scale ORC expanders in the power output range of 1-10kW, to enable deeper investigations on its performance.

The project is part of the development of a novel expander design concept and therefore offers the possibility to gain deeper insights into essential steps of a product design process. The design of a test rig consists of the following 4 steps:

1)      Embedding of auxiliary equipment to the DTU supply infrastructure.

2)      Design of the test bench including the selection of suitable measurement instrumentation.

3)      Run up and calibration of sensors.

4)      Participation in the first experiments.

 

The expected outcome of this project is a modular experimental set-up for organic Rankine Cycles. Furthermore, it is expected that the student can participate at the first experiments.

 The project will be carried out at the Thermal Energy Section (TES) of the Mechanical Engineering Department (MEK). According to the personal preferences of the candidate, the specific topic and extend of the work can be adjusted (special course, final project for a Bachelor or Master student).
