Dexpand research project
Optimized expanders for low power applications in decentralized energy.
The Optimised expanders for small-scale distributed energy systems (Dexpand) benefits from a € 1 430 000 grant from Norway and Technology agency of the Czech Republic. The aim of the project is to design, test and analyze potentials and feasibility of prospective expanders for organic Rankine cycles (ORC) based on impulse turbomachines and rotary vane expanders in power range of 1-50 kW.
The project is a joint research project between CTU in Prague, NTNU Trondheim, SINTEF Energi AS and company GT-Progress s.r.o. with duration between 10/2020 and 04/2024.
