Etude du cycle de Rankine solaire basée sur la thermodynamique à vitesse finie

Abstract : At the current time the economic and energetic situations forces us to rethink seriously our way to produce power. It seems an urgent need to find new alternatives to the use of fossil fuels. Now, we have to develop new technologies using clean and renewable energies and more environmental friendly. Furthermore, every system needs to be well studied and optimized in depth. So, this study could give a perfect answer to this problematic. This work involves the study and the optimization of a solar Rankine cycle by the Finite Speed Thermodynamic. The cycle studied here is coupled with a solar concentrator in order to giving it the necessary heat for its working. It will be studied the impact of the irreversibility on the system's performances by the Finite Speed Thermodynamic (FST). This well-elaborated method allows us to study a piston-cylinder device as close as possible of the reality. It will also be done the sizing of the solar-concentrator, a parabolic-trough reflector used to concentrate the solar radiations on an absorber in order to warm the cycled fluid. Finally, we'll compare several Organic Rankine Cycles (ORCs), one using siloxane as powering fluid and one using benzene.
