  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
