  1. 1. Spark Ignition Combustion of Direct Injected Alternative Fuels

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Lars Christian Riis Johansen; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; spark ignition; optical diagnostics; internal combustion engine; stratified combustion;

    Abstract : Several technologies and modifications exist to increase the fuel efficiency of passenger vehicles in general and spark ignition engines in particular. Combining a spark ignition engine with an electric drive system in hybrid powertrain and thermodynamic cycle improvements are two such approaches with the potential to greatly reduce fuel consumption.

  2. 2. The role of methane and hydrogen in a fossil-free Swedish transport sector

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mårten Larsson; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; renewable transport fuels; biogas; methane; hydrogen; electrofuels; pyrolysis; well to wheel; transport policy; energy policy; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Drastic reductions of greenhouse gas emissions are required to limit the severe risks associated with a changing climate. One measure is to disrupt the fossil-fuel dependency in the transport sector, but it appears difficult and costly in comparison to other measures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling, Optimization and Analysis of Electromobility Systems

    University dissertation from Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Gabriel Domingues; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electromobility; Electric Vehicles; Hybrid Vehicles; Charging; Modeling; Optimization;

    Abstract : Due to an increase in environmental awareness and an improved understanding on the impact of human activity on our planet’s climate, there is a strong desire both from governments and the general public to reduce harmful pollution and emissions. This requires action on different fronts, like decarbonizing electricity generation, industrial activity and not least the transport sector. READ MORE
