Waste Heat Capture

Developed by Prof. Yogi Goswami, the "Goswami Cycle" recovers waste heat and translates it into electricity. It is a novel thermodynamic cycle that uses a binary mixture to produce power and refrigeration simultaneously in one loop. This cycle is a combination of the Rankine power cycle and an absorption cooling cycle. Its advantages include the production of power and cooling in the same cycle, the design flexibility to produce any combination of power and refrigeration, the efficient conversion of moderate temperature heat sources, and the possibility of improved resource utilization compared to separate power and cooling systems.
