  1. 1. Giant Oil Fields - The Highway to Oil Giant Oil Fields and their Importance for Future Oil Production

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Robelius; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Engineering physics; giant oil fields; URR; future oil production; peak oil; forecast; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : Since the 1950s, oil has been the dominant source of energy in the world. The cheap supply of oil has been the engine for economic growth in the western world. Since future oil demand is expected to increase, the question to what extent future production will be available is important. READ MORE

  3. 3. Partial Discharge Signatures of Defects in Insulation Systems Consisting of Oil and Oil-impregnated Paper

    University dissertation from KTH, Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mohamad Ghaffarian Niasar; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; partial discharge; transformer; oil; ageing; temperature; PD classification;

    Abstract : Partial discharge measurement is a common method for monitoring and diagnostics of power transformers, and can detect insulation malfunctions before they lead to failure. Different parameters extracted from the measured PD activity can be correlated to the PD source, and as a result it is possible to identify the PD source by analyzing the PD activity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Particulate Emissions Associated with Diesel Engine Oil Consumption

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Petter Tornehed; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : Lubrication oil; Particulate emission; Particulate matter PM ; Oil consumption; Diesel engine; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Mechanical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Maskinteknik;

    Abstract : Particulate emissions from diesel engines have been a key issue for diesel engine developers in recent decades. Their work has succeeded in reducing the exhaust particles from the combustion of fuel, which has led to increasing interest in the contribution of particulates from lubrication oil. READ MORE

  5. 5. Survival of the Unfit Path Dependence and the Estonian Oil Shale Industry

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Rurik Holmberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2008]

    Abstract : Estonia is the only country in the world, which is totally dependent on oil shale in its energy system. Although this fossil fuel exists in enormous quantities around the world, it has so far not been utilized on a larger scale. The reasons for this have been both economic and, in recent times, ecological. READ MORE
