Abstract

In this article, modeling and optimization of two different organic Rankine cycles (ORC) (Power Plant (a) with a recuperator and Power Plant (b) without a recuperator) utilizing geothermal brine (GB) are studied. The developed models for these ORCs include performance characteristics of different components obtained ...
