In present time Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) has come to be a field of intense research and seems a promising technology for conversion of heat into useful work or electricity. The utilization of low grade renewable heat sources requires the use of Organic Rankine Cycle systems (ORC) as a developed technology for low-grade temperature power generation, where organic fluids such as hydrocarbons or refrigerants are operated to facilitate efficient power and/or heating or cooling cogeneration. This work proposed power generation systems especially with renewable sources have shown a promising result all over the world and have been a technical solution to demand growth for organic. The work has been developed for the find thermodynamic suitable fluids for ORC in biomass power and heat plants and also comparison of different working fluids are present. Results show that the best performance among fluids Toluene, Butyl benzene, Propyl benzene, octamethyltrisiloxane and Ethylbenzene for the system conditions described as per varying of temperature scales which is simulated in MATLAB tool.
