ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) is widely used to convert low temperature heat into electricity using organic working fluid. The performance of an ORC installation is influenced deeply by selected working fluid and operation conditions. Recently has been presented a new generation of working fluids dedicated to ORC systems. They are characterized by near zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) coefficient and significantly smaller GWP (Global Warming Potential) in comparison with currently used refrigerants. This paper presents preliminary research on selected dry and isentropic ORC fluids and some peculiarities in their behaviour.
