EORCC Workshop 2017


Engine ORC Consortium


The Engine ORC Consortium 2017 Workshop is an open forum for technical sharing and learning about mobile and stationary ORC systems (systems of up to 100 kW net output power).

Building on the success of the 2016 conference, which was held in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the 4th annual workshop will take place in Troy, Detroit Michigan between 15-17 November 2017.

The three day program will provide a perfect platform to explore issues of common interest, share successful practices and experiences, debate new concepts with a view to increasing the level of our collaboration and collective impact.

An early bird registration fee of $550 is available until 1 October, after which the standard fee of $650 will apply.  You have the option to purchase a ticket to the gala dinner on 16 November.

A conference accommodation rate of $175 plus taxes per night bed and breakfast has been negotiated with the conference hotel, Detroit Marriott Troy.  You will need to book this directly with the hotel, by clicking on this link or you can ring the hotel on (248) 680-9797 or Marriott’s 800 number (800) 228-9290 and reference the EORCC Annual General Conference to make reservations via phone.

Upcoming Waste Heat Recovery Course at the Engine ORC Consortium

Join us for a Fundamentals and Practical Aspects of Waste Heat Recovery workshop, hosted by SoftInWay Inc. and taking place on November 14th in The Hilton Garden Inn Detroit Troy - 200 Wilshire Drive, Troy, MI 48084 just one day before the Engine ORC Consortium! This workshop will be led by SoftInWay’s expert engineering team and covers everything from assessment, opportunities, development and challenges for waste heat recovery to fluid properties and selection while diving into thermodynamic cycles and design of waste heat recovery system elements and components using a combination of both theoretical and real-life examples. 

About the workshop:

The goal of this 1­ day course is to provide engineers with a better understanding of what waste heat recovery (WHR) systems are and how they can greatly benefit the way we look at our processes. Specificities of WHR turbomachinery will be discussed, fundamentals of heat transfer as well as types and applications of various heat exchangers will be introduced and in-depth selection and design of axial and radial expanders will be undertaken. This includes basic equations used for the design and analysis at design and off-design conditions of such machines, explanations on what a turbine is and the use of its components and their losses, as well as elementary profiling tips and much more.

In addition, the workshop will be supported with practical case studies illustrated through the use of different software tools.
