  1. 1. Charge Accumulation in Hybrid High Voltage Insulation

    Author : Mats Sjöberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : dielectric barrier; charge accumulation; high voltage; dielectric barrier discharge; dielectric coating; hybrid insulation; electric field distribution; discharge modelling; breakdown strength; charge conditioning;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the novel idea of controlling the electric stress or field distribution in a hybrid air - solid-dielectric high voltage insulation by promoting accumulation of surface charges on the internal interfacial layers in the combined (hybrid) dielectric structure. Primarily, applications are expected to be found in high voltage dc systems and as a method to improve the resistance against insulation failure by overvoltages, e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Assessment of novel applications for nano-porous thermal insulation in district heating pipes and building walls

    Author : Axel Berge; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Adaptive façade; nano-porous insulation; thermal insulation; district heating pipes; hybrid insulation;

    Abstract : In nano-porous thermal insulation there is a strong relation between the pressure and the thermal conductivity, even at pressures close to atmospheric pressure. This thesis presents research on applications of nano-porous insulation in hybrid insulation district heating pipes and in building walls. READ MORE

  3. 3. Active High Voltage Insulation - A New Hybrid Insulation Concept with Dynamic and Active Features

    Author : Jörgen Blennow; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : high voltage; surface charge; dielectric coating; charge accumulation; insulation; breakdown strength; covered electrodes; air-gap; dielectric barrier discharges;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the concept of a new environmental-friendly and high-performance high voltage insulation is presented. Basically, it is an electric field steering technique where the dynamic process of charge accumulation, actively and advantageously, re-distributes the electric field within an insulation system.

  4. 4. Design, processing and properties of lightweight foams from cellulose nanofibers

    Author : Korneliya Gordeyeva; Lennart Bergström; Nathalie Lavoine; Monica Österberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cellulose nanofibers; lightweight foams; hybrid; materialkemi; Materials Chemistry;

    Abstract : Foams are applied in many areas including thermal insulation of buildings, flotation devices, packaging, filters for water purification, CO2 sorbents and for biomedical devices. Today, the market is dominated by foams produced from synthetic, non-renewable polymers, which raises serious concerns for the sustainable and ecological development of our society. READ MORE

  5. 5. Novel Thermal Insulation in Future Building and District Heating Applications - Hygrothermal Measurements and Analysis

    Author : Axel Berge; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : vacuum insulation panels; superinsulation; aerogel blankets; wooden stud walls; thermal conductivity; district heating;

    Abstract : The interest for reducing the energy consumption in society has increased during the last decades due to an increased environmental awareness. One way to decrease the energy losses in the building sector is to improve the thermal insulation of building envelopes and installations and thereby decrease the heat losses. READ MORE
