The goal of the project is the development of a system for detecting the occurrence of corrosion-risk conditions and putting it into practical operation. This system is primarily intended for cogeneration units with an ORC cycle, where waste heat from alternative energy sources is used and operation is thus threatened by corrosion below the dew point. The early warning system is important due to the use of flammable media in the heat exchangers of ORC cycles and therefore the possibility of their damage must be minimized.
