Kalina Cycle

Tangellapalli Srinivas*

Abstract

The plant layout and working of Kalina cycle (KC) differs with the organic Rankine Cycle (ORC), steam Rankine cycle (SRC) and flash cycle. Separation and absorption of binary working fluid makes this cycle a different heat engine cycle. This chapter is aimed at the description, formulation and performance characteristics of KC suitable to a heat recovery. The strong solution concentration and vapour concentration are studied to maximize the power. A suitable KC configuration for the low temperature heat recovery has been selected and studied.
