  1. 1. Enhanced Active Resonant DC Circuit Breakers for HVDC Grids

    Author : Tim Augustin; Hans-Peter Nee; Marley Becerra; Jürgen Biela; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Active damping; Actuator; DC circuit breakers; DC grid; DC power systems; Fast mechanical switch; Fault handling strategy; Gas discharge devices; HVDC; HVDC circuit breakers; Multilevel converters; Multiterminal HVDC; Power transmission; Spark gaps; Thomson-coil actuator; Vacuum interrupter; Voltage Source Converter VSC ; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : High-voltage DC (HVDC) grids are considered promising for the electricity grid expansion required to integrate renewable energy sources into the existing infrastructure. DC fault currents increase rapidly and lack a current zero crossing. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development and application of laser diagnostics - from laboratory devices towards practical combustion engines

    Author : Zhenkan Wang; Förbränningsfysik; []
    Keywords : Combustion diagnostics; Laser induced fluorescence LIF ; Ultra-high-speed; Burst-mode laser; Ballistic imaging; Particle imaging velocimetry; Laser Doppler anemometry; Turbulent premixed combustion; Plasma; Internal combustion engine; Partially premixed combustion PPC ; Auto-ignition; OH radical; CH2O formaldehyde ; Fysicumarkivet A:2018:Wang;

    Abstract : For many decades, research work on combustion has been focused on improving combustion efficiency and reducing harmful emissions. Laser diagnostics is one of the best ways to investigate the combustion process and emission formation as it is non-intrusive and it has high spatiotemporal resolution. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aerosol Metal Nanoparticles and their Role in Particle-Assisted Growth of III–V Nanowires

    Author : Robert Hallberg; NanoLund; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aerosol formation; III–V semiconductor materials; catalyst particles; Palladium nanoparticles; Gold nanoparticles; Spark discharge generation; MOVPE; MOCVD; Transmission electron microscopy TEM ; Phase stability; Nanoparticle deposition; Nanoparticle generation; nanoparticles characterization; Nanowire NW ; Nanowire growth;

    Abstract : Semiconductor nanowires have properties that make them potentially useful for applications in future electronic, photovoltaic, and optoelectronic devices. A powerful nanowire fabrication technique is the use of a nanoparticle as a preferential nucleation site, from which a nanowire grows. READ MORE

  4. 4. An electrostatic sampling device for point-of-care detection of bioaerosols

    Author : Laila Ladhani; Wouter van der Wijngaart; Jorma Keskinen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electrostatic sampling; bioaerosols; point-of-care; breath sampling; electrostatic precipitation; microfluidic collection; corona discharge; air sampling; non-invasive diagnostics; exhaled breath analysis; on-site detection; aerosol sampling; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Bioaerosols are not only a significant factor of air quality but contribute greatly to the spread of infectious diseases, specifically through expired pathogen-laden aerosols. Clear examples of airborne transmission include: the recent influenza pandemic of 2009, the ongoing tuberculosis epidemic, and yearly norovirus out- breaks, which affect millions of people worldwide and pose serious threats to public healthcare systems.
