  1. 1. Buoy Geometry, Size and Hydrodynamics for Power Take Off Device for Point Absorber Linear Wave Energy Converter

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Halvar Gravråkmo; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; point absorber; wave; energy; converter; ocean; wec; toroidal; buoy; torus; cylindrical; cylinder; experiment; full scale; trial; sea; energy; renewable; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : Wave energy converters of point absorber type have been developed and constructed. Full scale experiments have been carried out at sea and electricity has been successfully delivered. Linear permanent magnet generators together with a subsea substation and buoys of various geometric shapes have been investigated theoretically and experimentally. READ MORE

  2. 2. Management of technology in the process industries:  Matching market and machine

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Peter Samuelsson; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; process industries; manufacturing; innovation; configuration; strategizing; capability; configuration modelling; process industries; production system; physical modelling; AOD; converter geometry; injection; mixing times; electric arc furnace; EAF; post-combustion; high-impedance; network disturbances; operational results; Metallurgical process science; Metallurgisk processvetenskap;

    Abstract : The process industries span multiple industrial sectors and constitute a substantial part of the entire manufacturing industry. Since companies belonging to this family of industries are often very asset intensive, their ability to respond to changes is often limited in the short term. READ MORE

  3. 3. Buoy for linear wave energy converter

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper, Uppsala universitet

    Author : Halvar Gravråkmo; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : A wave energy converter (WEC) of point absorber type has been developed and tests have been conducted outside Lysekil. The project started in 2002 and linear permanent magnet generators together with a subsea substation and buoys of various geometric shapes have been built and tested. READ MORE

  4. 4. Catalytic Converters for Automotive Exhaust Applications. Flow Dynamics, Mass Transfer and Optimization

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper, Uppsala universitet

    Author : Fredrik Ekström; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TWC; optimization; exhaust; laboratory reactors; catalytic converter; catalysis; pressure drop; entrance effects; CFD; mass transfer; pulsations; flow distribution;

    Abstract : In order to reduce emissions from vehicles powered by an internal combustion engine, an exhaust aftertreatment system is normally mounted on the engine. This aftertreatment system normally consists of one or several catalytic converters. READ MORE

  5. 5. Performance Evaluation and Life Cycle Cost Analysis of the Electrical Generation Unit of a Wave Energy Converter

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Pinar Tokat; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : The main focus of this work is the performance and the economical assessment of a radial flux generator that is used in wave power applications. The wave energy converter (WEC) used in this work is a point absorber, that is considered to move only in heave. READ MORE
