  1. 1. Semiconductor-ionic Materials for Low Temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    Author : Muhammad Afzal; Andrew R. Martin; Peter Lund; Hab. Armelle Ringuede; KTH; []
    Keywords : Semiconductor-ionic materials; electrolyte-layer free fuel cell; low temperature solid oxide fuel cell; fuel to electricity conversion; Schottky junction; theoretical and experimental curves; Halvledar-joniska material; elektrolytskikt-fri bränslecell; lågtemperatur fastoxidbränslecell; bränsle till elomvandling; Schottky junction; teoretiska och experimentella kurvor; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : Solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is considered as an attractive candidate for energy conversion within the fuel cell (FC) family due to several advantages including environment friendly, use of non-noble materials and fuel flexibility. However, due to high working temperatures, conventional SOFC faces many challenges relating to high operational and capital costs besides the limited selection of the FC materials and their compatibility issues.

  2. 2. Aerodynamic Design and Aeromechanical Analysis of Mixed and Radial Flow Turbines : A study on meanline method, stator tilting endwall design and forced response analysis

    Author : Yang Gao; Andrew R. Martin; Jens Fridh; Damian Vogt; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Turbomachinery; CFD; aerodynamics; aeromechanics; mixed flow turbine; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : In this energy transition era, turbocharging is still an important technology for the automotive industry to reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions in its vehicles. This importance can be seen from both conventional fossil-fuel powertrains, and emerging applications, such as increased utilization of biofuels along with hydrogen fuel cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Renewables Based Polygeneration for Rural Development in Bangladesh

    Author : MD. Ershad Ullah Khan; Andrew R. Martin; Semida Silveira; Peter Hagström; Jochen Bundschuh; Erik Ahlgren; Marcus Öhman; Monica Odlare; Lasse Aistrup Rosendahl; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Anaerobic digester; solar PV; polygeneration; cooking gas; gas engine; electricity; membrane distillation; arsenic safe water; Anaerobisk rötkammare; solceller; polygenerering; matlagningsgas; gasmotor; elektricitet; membrandestillering; arsenikfritt vatten; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : Despite the country's rural electrification programme, kerosene is the predominant source for lighting, and unsustainable and polluting woody biomass is virtually the only option available for cooking. The rural population also struggles with unsafe drinking water in terms of widespread arsenic contamination of well water. READ MORE

  4. 4. Determining the quality of natural gas and biomethane : Development of a correlative method and instrument prototype for measuring gas quality

    Author : Taras Koturbash; Vladimir G. Kutcherov; Andrew R. Martin; Khaled Loubar; KTH; []
    Keywords : Natural gas; biomethane; calorific value; Wobbe Index; ultrasonic measurement; sound attenuation; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : The composition of natural gas highly depends on its origin: natural gas from various deposits, substitute natural gas that can be produced from fossil fuels or renewable sources. The intermixing of gases from various supply sources during pipeline transportation also leads to more complicated and unpredictable gas composition variations at the consumption site. READ MORE

  5. 5. Application of Rare-Earth Doped Ceria and Natural Minerals for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    Author : Yanyan Liu; Andrew R. Martin; Wujun Wang; Shanwen Tao; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Low-temperature solid oxide fuel cells; Doped ceria; Material characterizations; Electrochemical performances; Natural minerals; Lågtemperatur fastoxidbränsleceller; Dopade ceriumoxid; Materialkarakteriseringar; Elektrokemiska prestanda; Naturliga mineraler.; Energy Technology; Energiteknik; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Materials Science and Engineering; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Although solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology exhibits considerable advantages as compared to other energy conversion devices, e.g. high efficiency, low emission and fuel flexibility, its high operating temperature leads to rapid component degradation and has thus hampered commercialization.
