  3. 3. Evaluation of test cycles for freight locomotives

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mattias Skoglund; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; duty cycles; test cycles; diesel locomotives; locomotive emissions; dual modes; hybrid systems;

    Abstract : Diesel locomotives provide versatility to the railway system as they do not depend on electric feeding. Worldwide they constitute important parts of locomotive fleets used for various tasks such as mainline services, shunting and terminal operations. The main drawbacks are emissions of CO2, NOx and other pollutants. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells Applied to the Analysis of Integrated Systems with Gas Turbines

    University dissertation from Department of Heat and Power Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Azra Selimovic; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; statistical physics; plasma; plasmas; Gaser; fluiddynamik; Termisk teknik; termodynamik; Gases; fluid dynamics; applied thermodynamics; Thermal engineering; Hybrid Cycles; Gas Turbines; Mathematical Modelling; Electrochemistry; Fuel Cells; Solid Oxide Fuel Cells; thermodynamics; Matematisk och allmän teoretisk fysik; klassisk mekanik; kvantmekanik; relativitet; gravitation; statistisk fysik; Mathematical and general theoretical physics; classical mechanics; quantum mechanics; relativity;

    Abstract : Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), working at high temperatures with an incomplete fuel oxidation process, have become an interesting candidate for combination with conventional power generation technology, such as gas turbines, in order to develop power plants that are both functional and efficient. An absolute condition for successful analysis and optimisation of such plants is the existence of reliable simulation tools. READ MORE

  5. 5. Thermal Modelling of Power Modules in a Hybrid Vehicle Application

    University dissertation from Department of Heat and Power Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Jonas Ottosson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Power Module; Thermal Modelling; Electro-Thermal Simulations; Reliability; Cooling requirements;

    Abstract : Hybrid electric and full electric vehicles have attracted growing attention during the last decade. This is a consequence of several factors, such as growing environmental concerns, increasing oil prices and a strive for oil independency. READ MORE
