Micro scale ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) to convert low temperature heat in power.

Objective of this project is to create basic design concept to build a micro scale power generator.

The working principle of the generator is based on Organic Rankine Cycle. It captures energy from low temperature heat sources and converts it in power.

Also it will be easily manufacturable by simple shop equipment and supported with an online 3D print service for special components.

Specification:
Heat source water temperature: max 95°C
Condensing teperature: 28°C
Working fluid: R134a (next step Solkatherm ES36)
Mass flow (R134a): 4,621 g/s (depends on efficiency)
Evaporator heat capacity: 1 KWatt
Turbine power: 65 Watts
