University of Glasgow, previously attended by William Rankine.
The conference brings together the disciplines of Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) and Refrigeration, Air-Conditioning and Heat Pumps (RACHP).
Please can authors submit their abstracts by 20 September, these should follow one of the programme themes:
- Cooling and Heating refrigeration systems with the reverse Rankine cycle, including compressors, heat transfer and exchanger, system/cycle design and optimisation, novel applications and system simulation.
- Power generation using organic fluids, comparing organic Rankine cycle to other power generation applications, expanders, heat transfer and exchangers, system/ cycle design and optimisation, novel applications and system simulation.
- Working Fluids new fluids, fluid blends, environmental impact, performance analysis and comparisons, (both natural working fluids and fluorine-based refrigerants).
For student researchers there is a prize fund of £1,800 that will be awarded to the best student papers presented. Students also receive a discounted registration fee.
