Organic Rankine Cycles are an interesting technology for producing electricity from medium temperature heat which is available as waste heat, solar thermal energy and from biomass. A crucial problem is the choice of a working fluid optimized for the given situation. Here, several ORC-processes with different working fluids are compared with the steam power process for different types of processes. In addition, potential working fluids are nominated which shall be investigated in detail in a subsequent project.
