Abstract

The performance of ORC systems strongly depends on working fluid properties. We explore the relationships between working fluid properties and ORC common economic and thermodynamic performance criteria from a theoretical and an analytical point of view. The mapping of individual properties and performance criteria presented in this paper will provide a basis for the development of efficient and systematic strategies and approaches for ORC working fluid selection in future.
