  1. 1. Submerged Transmission in Wave Energy Converters : Full Scale In-Situ Experimental Measurements

    Author : Erland Strömstedt; Mats Leijon; Hans Bernhoff; Jan-Olov Aidanpää; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wave energy converter; direct drive; submerged transmission; piston rod; seal housing; sealing system; laser triangulation sensor; offshore measurements; relative displacement; vibrations; tilt angle; tilting; wear estimation.; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : Different wave power technologies are in development around the world in different stages of prototype testing. So far only a few devices have been deployed offshore at full scale for extended periods of time. Little data is published about how these different devices perform. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wave Energy Converters : An experimental approach to onshore testing, deployments and offshore monitoring

    Author : Liselotte Ulvgård; Mats Leijon; Jonny Hylander; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wave power; ocean energy; linear generator; measurements; sensors; point absorber; offshore; PTO; force; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : The wave energy converter (WEC) concept developed at Uppsala University consists of a point absorbing buoy, directly connected to a permanent magnet linear generator. Since 2006, over a dozen full scale WECs have been deployed at the Lysekil Research Site, on the west coast of Sweden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Prediction of Energy Use of a Swedish Secondary School Building : Building Energy Simulation, Validation, Occupancy Behaviour and Potential Energy-Efficiency Measures

    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building energy simulation; school building; field measurements; energy use; heat power demand; validation; occupancy behaviour; airing; energy-efficiency measures; byggnadssimulering; skolbyggnad; fältmätningar; energianvändning; värmeeffektbehov; validering; brukarbeteende; vädring; energieffektiviseringsåtgärder; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : Residential and public buildings account for about 40% of the annual energy use in Europe. Many buildings are in urgent need of renovation, and reductions in energy demand in the built environment are of high importance in both Europe and Sweden. Building energy simulation (BES) tools are often used to predict building performance. READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy Efficiency Improvements of Tumble Dryers : -Technical Development, Laundry Habits and Energy Labelling

    Author : Lena Stawreberg; Lars Nilsson; Jonas Berghel; Roger Renström; Björn Palm; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; drying; domestic; energy efficiency; textile; energy labelling standard; Thermal energy engineering; Termisk energiteknik; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Abstract : Tumble dryers are becoming more and more common in ordinary households as a complement to the washing machine. Tumble dryers offer a fast drying cycle independent on weather conditions and require small space. They do, however, considering the large number of units use a large amount of electricity.

    Abstract : Energy from solar photovoltaic (PV) are generated as direct current (DC) and almost all of today’s electrical loads in residential buildings, household appliances and HVAC system (Heating Ventilation and Air-conditioning) are operated on DC. For a conventional alternating current (AC) distribution system this requires the need for multiple conversion steps before the final user-stage. READ MORE
