Power generation testing rigs

AGGAT researchers, with industrial support, have designed and installed a lab scale ORC power generation test rig using waste heat from a gas turbine. The rig is subject to continuous improvement as higher degrees of instrumentation and capability are added to it as part of current research work.

In addition a second, larger test rig is being developed which is at concept stage. The advantage of having this rig installed and available will be our capability to test at different scales of power generation and hence establish a scale up or scale down process to flexibly support the development of market ready above-ground energy solutions.

Field based power generation plants in the range of 100-250kW are also under development and the establishment of testing capabilities for them will further enhance the range of testing facilities available.
