In this model Solar Organic Rankine Cycle (SORC) by the use of Toluene and Therminol-VP1
heat transfer oil is used for electric power generation and desalination purposes. The desalination part is represented by membrane distillation. Biogas fired boiler is used for sunoff periods. Anaerobic digestion is a sequence of processes by which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen. The process is used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste or to produce fuels. Much of the fermentation used industrially to produce food and drink products, as well as home fermentation, uses anaerobic digestion. The cycle contains the following:
1-PTC Therminol-VP1.
2-Boiler heat exchanger unit with storage and pump.
3-Turbine unit for power generation.
4-Recuperator for energy recovery.
5-Condenser/cooling heat exchanger unit.
6-Membrane distillation plant (Air Gap configuration).
7-ORC pump.
8-Biogas boiler (Anaerobic digestion system) for sun off periods.
9-Cost analysis block.
10-Performance block.
11-Thermoeconomic and exergy analysis are considered.

Note that:
For PTC collector the design operating temperature shouldn't exceed above 400oC.
