Selection, design features, and performance evaluation of a low-power turbopack unit of a solar thermodynamic power system are discussed. The unit, which converts solar energy into shaft power, works on a low-temperature Rankine cycle and uses acetone. The low-cost design of a partial admission impulse turbine with a spring-loaded graphite seal is outlined, and the performance of the unit as a drive for a centrifugal water pump is evaluated.
