  1. 1. Humidification in Evaporative Power Cycles

    Author : Farnosh Dalili; KTH; []
    Keywords : Gas Turbines; EvGT; HAT; Humidification; Evaporator; Saturator;

    Abstract : Evaporative gas turbine cycles (EvGT) show an exceptionalexhaust heat recovery potential, which makes them a strongcompetitor to other advanced gas turbine cycles, especiallyfrom small to intermediate sizes. Evaporative gas turbines aredistinguished by humidifying the working fluid beforecombustion at temperatures below the boiling point of water;and the heat required for evaporation of water is partly takenout of the exhaust gas.

  2. 2. Humidification Processes in Gas Turbine Cycles

    Author : Marcus Thern; Kraftverksteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; applied thermodynamics; Thermal engineering; Energiforskning; Energy research; HAT; Biomass; Biofuel; Humidification; Evaporation; Evaporative gas turbine ; Humid air turbine ; Termisk teknik; termodynamik;

    Abstract : The global climate change caused by emissions of greenhouse gases from combustion processes has been recognized as a continuously growing problem and much research focuses on improving the environmental performance of gas turbines. The potential of improving gas turbine component efficiencies has become smaller each decade and therefore, thermodynamic cycles have become more interesting for power producing units. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation, Experience and Potential of Gas Turbine Based Cycles with Humidification

    Author : Torbjörn Lindquist; Kraftverksteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Model Validation; Recuperator; Flue Gas Condensation; Humidification; Gas Turbine; Advanced Thermodynamic Cycles; HAT; Humid Air Turbine; Evaporative Gas Turbine Cycle; EvGT; Operating Experience; EvGT Pilot Plant; Thermal engineering; applied thermodynamics; Termisk teknik; termodynamik;

    Abstract : Gas turbines, in simple and combined cycle, are common and economically profitable on the power generating market today. Several new cycles have been proposed as future competing technologies, but all studies about these cycles have, so far, been paperwork. READ MORE

  4. 4. Turbomachinery in Biofuel Production

    Author : Martin Görling; Mats Westermark; Simon Harvey; Bengt Hylander; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bio-Methanol; Biomass; Gasification; Humidification; Hybrid Cycle; SNG; Chemical energy engineering; Kemisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : The aim for this study has been to evaluate the integration potential of turbo-machinery into the production processes of biofuels. The focus has been on bio-fuel produced via biomass gasification; mainly methanol and synthetic natural gas. The research has been divided into two parts; gas and steam turbine applications.

  5. 5. Wound ventilation : A new concept for prevention of complications in cardiac surgery

    Author : Mikael Persson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Cardiac surgery; air embolism; airborne contamination; wound infection; desiccation; adhesion; carbon dioxide insufflation; antiseptic agent; ethanol; humidification;

    Abstract : Cardiac surgery through an open chest wound is a major operation both in size and duration. The wound exposure to ambient air implies considerable risks. 1) Air may enter the heart and great vessels and embolize to the brain or cardiac muscle where it may cause dysfunction or permanent damage.
