Heat recovery from nonisothermal sources such as liquefied natural gas or flue gas can be maximized when a multi component mixture is used for working fluid. The goal of this thesis is, to build an optimization model to find optimum composition of working fluid for simple organic Rankine Cycle. Also, solutions from stochastic solver and deterministic solver will be compared.

Prerequisites Programming skills, Matlab, Aspen Plus, GAMS

Prerequisites Wokring fluid optimization for nonisothermal heat source
