Energy And Exergy Analysis Of Condenser In Organic Rankine Cycle Depending On Condensation Temperatures
This paper presents an energetic and exergetic analysis based on the first and second laws of thermodynamics for
condenser in organic Rankine cycle when the heat source is low-temperature energy in the form of sensible heat. In the
analysis, effects of the selection of working fluid and condensation temperature are investigated on the performance of the
condenser including the effectiveness of heat transfer, exergy destruction, pinch point, and second law efficiency. The results
show that the thermodynamic performance of condenser such as pinch-point position, effectiveness, exergy destruction, and
second-law efficiency are sensitively by the selection of working fluid or condensation temperature.
