[en] This working paper is divided into two parts. The first part provides a reminder and theoritical background in fluid thermodynamics (first law, second law, ideal/real gases, liquids, thermodynamic processes). The second part applies the theory to the study of a simple Organic Rankine Cycle, by modeling the 4 main processes (pumping, evaporation, expansion, condensation).
