The project will enable a novel flexible CHP system concept by developing an Organic Rankine Cycle system that can be integrated with a reciprocating engine to achieve total CHP system efficiencies of 85% or more at both its rated electrical capacity and at 50% capacity. Such a CHP system will be able to provide additional power to the grid when needed without sacrificing system efficiency under different operating conditions.
