  1. 1. Potential of Ventilation Radiators : Performance evaluation by numerical, analytical and experimental means

    Author : Jonn Are Myhren; Sture Holmberg; Per Olaf Tjelflaat; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ventilation radiator; thermal comfort; exhaust ventilation; CFD; energy saving; convection fin; low temperature heating; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Energy consumption for heating and ventilation of buildings is still in 2011considered far too high, but there are many ways to save energy and construct lowenergy buildings that have not been fully utilised. This doctoral thesis has focused onone of these - low temperature heating systems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Energy Saving vs. Performance: Trade-offs in Optical Networks

    Author : Pawel Wiatr; Paolo Monti; Josep Solé-Pareta; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; energy-efficiency; optical networks; RWA; side-effects; device reliability performance; network performance; operational cost; benefits; loss; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : The energy consumption of communication networks is continuously growing. Many energy saving approaches have been proposed at the device, system, and network level. The most promising way to address this problem is to utilize photonic technologies as much as possible thanks to their low energy consumption per bit performance. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy Management in Large scale Solar Buildings : The Closed Greenhouse Concept

    Author : Amir Vadiee; Viktoria Martin; Philip Griffiths; KTH; []

    Abstract : Today’s buildings are responsible for 40% of the world’s energy use and also a substantial share of the Global Warming Potential (GWP). In Sweden, about 21% of the energy use can be related to the heat losses through the climatic envelope. READ MORE

  5. 5. Process Utility Performance Evaluation and Enhancements in the Traditional Sugar Cane Industry

    Author : Eyerusalem Deresse Birru; Andrew Martin; Catharina Erlich; Hailong Li; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sugar cane; energy saving; heat loss; steady state; transient state; CO2 emission; absorption chiller; pellet; bagasse drying; energy perfor-mance; traditional mills; modern mills; waste water; surplus power; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : The need to achieve sustainable development has led to devising various approaches for the efficient utilization of natural resources. Renewable energy technology and energy efficiency measures feature prominently in this regard, and in particular for industries such as sugar production:  the sugar cane industry’s eponymous feedstock is a renewable resource, and mills have potential for increased energy savings via improvements to cogeneration units, electric drive retrofitting, and other measures.
