5th International Seminar on
ORC Power Systems
Athens Greece
           WELCOME TO ORC 2019
The National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) is organizing the 5th International Seminar on ORC Power Systems. The Conference will take place in the Royal Olympic Hotel in Athens on September 9, 10 and 11 2019 and will be organized under the auspices of the Knowledge Center on Organic Rankine Cycle Technology(KCORC).KCORC is a scientific platform and is acting as the hub of our community of professionals from the academia and the industry dedicated to the promotion of ORC technology

Main theme: 
Promotion of science in the area of thermodynamic cycles of organic substances, which now have a wide application in the exploitation of renewable energy sources such as solar, geothermal, biomass or waste head from various processes

Following previous editions, but also considering new technical trends, the topics of the 5th International Seminar on Organic Rankine Cycle Power Systems will include:
  • Applications and Energy Sources
  • System Design and Optimization
  • Experimental activities and techniques
  • Working Fluids, including mixtures
  • Turbines; Volumetric expanders
  • Head Exchangers
  • Simulation and Design Tools
  • Advanced Control Strategies
  • Operational Experience on Prototypes
  • Supercritical CO2 and novel technologies
  • Waste head recovery
  • Marine applications
  • Novel/advanced architectures (mixtures,regenerative, multi-stage)
  • Domestic/multigeneration systems
  • Technological interaction of ORC with heat pumps
The ORC Conference has been co-organized by leading Universities of Europe with outstanding scientific work in the energy field, such as the Delft University of Technology, University of Liège, Ghent University and the Politecnico di Milano. Selected works of the conference will be published in the prestigious international journals Energy Journal (Elsevier) and Renewable Energy Journal (Elsevier).

Since the first edition in Delft, the International Seminar on Organic Rankine Cycle Power Systems established itself as the reference technical conference on the topic. The ORC International Seminar provides a unique preview on the latest technologies, where new ideas and technical solutions are presented. At the same time, the academic com- munity recognized it as the natural and most relevant podium to present research achievements to the international audience. Moreover, industries operating in the field can benefit presenting to scientists and market operators the task improvements to their technology
