Entropea secures funding for developing a Mini-scale ORC for Waste Heat Recovery

Entropea has  started a new project for developing an integrated, modular and retrofittable 20kWe ORC system for Heat to Power generation with volume costs not exceeding £2k/kWe. The 18 month Energy Entrepreneurs Fund financed project, entitled Mini-scale Organic Rankine Cycle for Waste Heat Recovery is running between November 2017 and May 2019.

Entropea at UK’s leading innovation event

Entropea Labs from London has been awarded a place for the third consecutive year at UK’s largest innovation event, Innovate 2017.

Are you interested to find out more about our technology, fuel efficiency,  waste heat recovery and organic rankine cycles? Come find us between  8th and 9th  November 2017 at NEC Birmingham. How to get there 

 

Entropea at ORC 2017

Dr. Benjamin Franchetti and Tamas Pal from Entropea will attend the ORC 2017 Conference in Milan, the industry’s largest biannual conference.

Entropea’s engineer, Lorenzo Tocci will also be there and will present his work on Neural Networks for small scale ORC optimization.

“This study concerns a thermodynamic and technical optimization of a small scale Organic Rankine Cycle system for waste heat recovery applications. An Artificial Neural Network (ANN) has been used to develop a thermodynamic model to be used for the maximization of the production of power while keeping the size of the heat exchangers and hence the cost of the plant at its minimum. R1234yf has been selected as the working fluid. The results show that the use of ANN is promising in solving complex nonlinear optimization problems that arise in the field of thermodynamics.”

Entropea starts new project: “10kWe ORC integrated free piston expander”

Entropea has  started a new project as part of a consortium with Libertine and Brunel University.  The 10kWe ORC integrated free piston expander is a two year Innovate UK funded project, with total project budget of £868k, running between August 2017 and August 2019. “The project will demonstarte a modular 10kWe Free Piston Gas Expander (FPGE) prototype for distributed heat-to-power applications using heat from solar, biomass, engine exhaust waste heat and other sources. The close integration of multiple heat-to-power system components within the FPGE module will improve system efficiency, packaging and cost.”

Entropea has succesfully completed a 2 year Innovate UK project

As part of a two year Innovate UK funded project (Adapting Waste Heat Recovery Technologies for Low Carbon Off-Highway Vehicles)  Entropea Labs has developed in collaboration with Brunel University an ORC based Waste Heat Recovery Technology for small scale diesel engines (200-400kW). The demonstrated technology can increase  fuel economy by 10%, is modular, non-invasive and reversible. This enables it to be scaled across the range of new engine production, irrespective of manufacturer, while also being retrofittable to the large number of diesel engines already in service. Moreover, the technology and expertise will be further exploited by adapting it and scaling it to other higher power stationery power generation and transport applications, between 400kW and 2MW.
