Abstract
The proposed technology uses a patented combination rankine and reverse rankine process, utilizing a widely used, non-toxic, refrigerant as the working fluid. The waste heat refrigeration core is supplemented with a novel engine and expander design to provide an efficient integrated power and cooling system. The system operates at higher working fluid temperatures and is more efficient and more compact than absorption type systems. The proposed technology is easily scalable for a variety of portable, mobile, and stationary applications. This project will validate key component technology, refine system performance models, and provide a system design that can be carried through to commercialization. The integrated system dramatically reduces the fuel consumption over today’s fielded technology. The development and commercialization of portable heat actuated power and cooling systems would be lead by Energy Quest and include a team of development and commercialization partners.
