    A method of using an organic Rankine cycle solar power plant13; system employing flat - plate collectors and a turbine to drive an irrigation pump has been proposed. Optimisation of the collector - heat engine combination has been carried out and the best thermodynamic operating region and corresponding collector area determined. Acetone and Freon 113 have been shown to be suitable working fluids for this application. The complete Ramkine plant, except for the collector array, has been constructed and preliminary tests with acetone have been successfully carried out with the collector heat supply being simulated by a hot air source.
