  1. 1. Characterization of conversion zones in a reciprocating grate furnace firing wet woody biomass

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Narges Razmjoo; Strand Michael; Chungen Yin; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biomass combustion; Grate firing; Fuel bed; Moisture; Gas phase; Conversion zone; Experimental; Temperature distribution; Gas analysis; Bioenergiteknik Energi- och Miljöteknik; Bioenergy Technology;

    Abstract : Grate-firing systems are a common and popular combustion technology for burning biomass. However, combustion of biomass in these furnaces may emit a large amount of pollutants in the form of CO, CH4, PAH, NOx, and particles. READ MORE

  2. 2. Volumetric combustion of torrefied biomass for large percentage biomass co-firing up to 100% fuel switch

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jun Li; Weihong Yang; Günter Scheffknecht; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biomass; co-firing; torrefaction; torrefaction degree; kinetics; volumetric combustion; fuel switch;

    Abstract : The co-firing of biomass and coal plays an important role in increasing the biomass power capacity and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The challenges of the large percentage biomass co-firing (over 20% on energy basis) in existing pulverized coal boilers are keeping the same steam parameters and having a high boiler efficiency and a stable operating.

  3. 3. Conductance-based principles of neuronal firing and excitability

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neuroscience

    Author : Hugo Zeberg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The brain is an electrical organ whose activity is determined by the flow of ions across cell membranes. As such, the conductances that control the ion flux is a key to our understanding of the nervous system. Neurons process information by their ability to rapidly depolarize and fire action potentials.

  4. 4. Co-firing complex biomass in a CFB boiler ash transformation, corrosion control and materials selection

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neuroscience

    Author : Henrik Hagman; Dan Boström; Rainer Backman; Mats Lundberg; Lars-Erik Åmand; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ash transformation; process control; equilibrium calculations; boiler availability; failures; alloy selection; alloy degradation; vortex finder VF ; service life estimation; sulfation; chloridation; high temperature corrosion; biomass; waste derived fuels; forest residues; RDF; Biomal; slaughterhouse waste; peat; waste wood; industrial waste water treatment sludge; HAD; RSMT; Alloy 253MA; Alloy 310S; Alloy 800H HT; Alloy DS; Alloy 600;

    Abstract : The effects of greenhouse gas net emissions on global warming, stricter legislation on waste handling, and the pursuit of ever cheaper heat- and power production are all important factors driving the introduction of complex fuels in incineration plants. However - without fundamental knowledge regarding ash transformation, corrosion control, and materials selection – this introduction of potentially economically and environmentally beneficial fuels, might instead cause economic loss and environmentally adverse effects.

  5. 5. Radiative Heat Transfer in Suspension-Fired Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neuroscience

    Author : Adrian Gunnarsson; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; co-firing; rotary kiln; combustion; Radiative heat transfer; soot volume fraction;

    Abstract : Radiation is the dominating heat transfer mechanism in most furnaces, and the radiative properties of combustion products represent important aspects regarding its suitability as a heat source. However, fuel and energy markets are undergoing rapid changes due to increasing concerns related to the security of supply and increased global warming. READ MORE
