Regenerative ORC System

Regenerative ORC system with an active lubricant oil circulation loop used by the Thermal Energy in Industry research group. Expanders up to 15 kWe can be connected using flexible adapters. Both the feed pump and the expander are speed controlled. The working fluid flow is measured with a Coriolis flow meter. Pressures and temperatures are measured at all necessary points of the cycle. Heat sources with various temperature profiles up to 200°C can be simulated.  The control system provides customizable control algorithms, graphical user interface and configurable data logging.
