Heat Balance Calculation of Organic Rankine Cycles with AxCYCLE™

This online-based training course provides participants with the knowledge to perform Organic Rankine Cycles (ORC) design, analysis and optimization. During this interactive, hands-on workshop, engineers will use the AxCYCLE™ software to successfully perform modeling and simulation of these cycles at design and off-design conditions as well as undertake optimization tasks.

The course scope includes:

  • An introduction to the AxCYCLE™ software
  • AxCYCLE™ components and how to use them
  • Working fluids selection
  • Cycle assembly
  • Property types
  • An overview of  the best practices in AxCYCLE™
  • How to preform ORC calculations in AxCYCLE™
  • Process diagrams (T-S & P-H)
  • Off-design performance prediction
  • Cycle optimization
  • Advanced cycles
  • Heat balance results post-processing

Who should attend:

  • Engineers interested in receiving a detailed overview of ORC basics
  • Design or development engineers, or specialists who is involved in the ORC design process
  • Commissioning engineers, sales engineers and project managers who are participating in the design and optimization process of turbomachinery
  • Engineering students looking for a comprehensive, theory-rich and hands-on course allowing them to meet the requirements of their future customers or employers
