  1. 1. Analysis of PEM Fuel Cell Stacks and Systems with Water/Thermal Balances

    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Takamasa Ito; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermal engineering; applied thermodynamics; Termisk teknik; termodynamik; PEM Fuel Cell Systems ; Water Thermal Balances ; Heat Exchangers ; PEM Fuel Cell Stacks ;

    Abstract : The Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell has been investigated for a long time, and is regarded as a new energy source for various applications, such as portable, stationary and automotive ones. However, due to the shortage of the infrastructure in the society, the high cost, the difficulty of the water/thermal management, etc. READ MORE

  2. 2. Waste Heat Recovery from Combustion Engines based on the Rankine Cycle

    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Gunnar Latz; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; waste heat recovery; Rankine cycle; piston expander;

    Abstract : Most of the energy in the fuel burned in modern automotive internal combustion engines is lost as wasteheat without contributing to the vehicle’s propulsion. In principle some of this lost energy could becaptured and used to increase the vehicle’s fuel efficiency by fitting a waste heat recovery system to theengine. READ MORE

  3. 3. Heat treatment of Al-Si-Cu-Mg casting alloys

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers Reproservice

    Author : Emma Sjölander; Högskolan i Jönköping.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cast aluminium alloys; Heat treatment; Solution treatment; Artificial ageing; Tensile properties; Plastic deformation; Microstructure; Modelling; Plastic Deformation; Tensile Properties; Heat Treatment; Solution Treatment; Artificial Ageing;

    Abstract : Environmental savings can be made by increasing the use of aluminium alloys in the automotive industry as the vehicles can be made lighter. Increasing the knowledge about the heat treatment process is one task in the direction towards this goal. The aim of this work is to investigate and model the heat treatment process for Al-Si casting alloys. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nano-EngineeredThermoelectric Materials for Waste Heat Recovery

    University dissertation from Stockholm 2014 : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mohsin Saleemi; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Energy crisis and thermal management related issues have been highlighted in the modern century due to escalating demands for energy consumption and global warming from fossil fuels. Sustainable and alternative energy sources are an ever growing global concern. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design of Thermoelectric Generators for Automotive EGR Applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm 2014 : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Olle Högblom; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Contact resistances; Exhaust gas heat recovery; Thermoelectrics; CFD;

    Abstract : Rising energy prices and greater environmental awareness along with stringent emissions legislation in the automotive industry make it possible to introduce techniques in the aftertreatment system that have previously been unprofitable. One such technique, studied in this work, is heat recovery in the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) cooler using thermoelectric generators (TEG). READ MORE
