  1. 1. Waste Heat Recovery in Heavy Duty Diesel Engines

    Author : Jelmer Johannes Rijpkema; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Organic Flash Cycle; Heavy Duty Diesel Engine; Organic Rankine Cycle; Trilateral Flash Cycle; Transcritical Rankine Cycle; Internal Combustion Engines; Waste Heat Recovery;

    Abstract : Over 50% of the energy released by burning fuel in a truck engine is lost as heat rather than being used to propel the vehicle. A promising method for capturing and reusing this heat, and thereby improving engine efficiency, is to exploit thermodynamic cycles for waste heat recovery (WHR). READ MORE

  2. 2. Thermodynamic Cycles for Low- and High-Temperature Waste Heat Recovery from Heavy-Duty Engines

    Author : Jelmer Johannes Rijpkema; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; engine efficiency; low-temperature; organic flash cycle; heavy-duty Diesel; long haul truck; organic Rankine cycle ORC ; internal combustion engine; transcritical Rankine cycle; expander; trilateral flash cycle; waste heat recovery;

    Abstract : To reduce the environmental impact of heavy-duty vehicles, it is critical to reduce their CO2 emissions by improving the engine efficiency. A promising way to do this is by extracting waste heat from the engine during operation and converting it into useful work. READ MORE

  3. 3. Waste heat recovery in a cruise vessel

    Author : Fredrik Ahlgren; Marcus Thern; Aykut Ölcer; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; whr; orc; ships; waste heat recovery; energy efficiency; cruise ships; Sjöfartsvetenskap; Maritime Science;

    Abstract : In three studies of a cruise ship the author has investigated waste heat recovery (WHR)from exhaust gases using an organic Rankine cycle (ORC), and also mapped the energyand exergy flows within the ship. Data were collected from the ship’s machinerysystem for a total extent of one year, and this data were used for simulations andenergy calculations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Reducing ships' fuel consumption and emissions by learning from data

    Author : Fredrik Ahlgren; Marcus Thern; Maria E. Mondejar; Cecilia Österman; Ann-Charlotte Larsson; Erik Dahlquist; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; shipping; energy efficiency; orc; machine learning; emissions; Sjöfartsvetenskap; Maritime Science;

    Abstract : In the context of reducing both greenhouse gases and hazardous emissions, the shipping sector faces a major challenge as it is currently responsible for 11% of the transport sector’s anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Even as emissions reductions are needed, the demand for the transport sector rises exponentially every year. READ MORE

  5. 5. Low temperature difference power systems and implications of multi-phase screw expanders in Organic Rankine Cycles

    Author : Henrik Öhman; Per Lundqvist; Armin Hafner; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : New and old data on screw expanders operating with 2-phase mixtures in the admission line has been combined to enable the first public correlation of adiabatic expansion efficiency as a function of entry vapour fraction. Although not yet perfected, these findings have enabled an entirely new approach to the design and optimisation of Organic Rankine Cycles, ORCs. READ MORE
