Abstract
The conventional internal combustion engines of today are starting to reach their maximum possible efficiency, however the demand for highly efficient vehicles keeps increasing. There are many ways of improving the total fuel consumption of an internal combustion engine, but one of the most promising, effective and available methods is the implementation of an Organic Rankine cycle (ORC). The scope of this master thesis has been to create an Organic Rankine cycle waste heat recovery model in the Visual Studio developer environment to integrate with Volvos in-house engine performance simulation software ICES.

A steady state Organic Rankine cycle model has been created for fast and simple waste heat recovery concept evaluations of possible future Volvo engine configurations. The model has been validated against a complete and advanced dynamic Simulink ORC model already available at Volvo Powertrain AB. (Less)
