Technologies for the conversion of external heat to power with reciprocating motion

Aly Taleb
Reciprocating energy-conversion devices, such as ORCs using reciprocating expanders or Thermofluidic Oscillators (TFOs), are promising technologies for the conversion of low- or medium-grade heat from waste heat, solar, or geothermal sources at power outputs below 100 kW. In this thesis, three topics associated with reciprocating machines are investigated. Firstly, a novel two-phase TFO engine concept, named ERPE, is modelled using a linear dynamic approach. Secondly, the use of working-fluid mixtures in ORCs is examined. Thirdly,...
