  1. 1. Energy Consumption and Running Time for Trains modelling of running resistance and driver behaviour based on full scale testing

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Piotr Lukaszewicz; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy consumption; Running time; running resistance; driver behaviour; freight; train; energy coasting method; aerodynamic drag; driver model; degree of coasting; slippage; wind; Energy saving; braking ratio; powering ratio; full scale testing; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Vehicle engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : The accuracy in determined energy consumption and runningtime of trains, by means of computer simulation, is dependent upon the various models used. This thesis aims at developing validated models of running resistance, train and of a generaldriver, all based on full scale testing. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the Analysis of Energy Efficient Aircraft Engines

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Oskar Thulin; [2017]
    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; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Performance modelling; Aero engine; Turbofan; Aircraft engine; Installed propulsion; Ultra high bypass ratio; Exergy analysis; Engine weight estimate; Variable area fan nozzle; Multiple pivoting flaps; Translating cowls;

    Abstract : Aero engine performance analysis is highly multidimensional using various measures of component performance such as turbomachinery and mechanical efficiencies, and pressure loss coefficients. Using conventional performance analysis, relying on only the laws of thermodynamics, it is possible to understand how the performance parameters affect the component performance, but it is difficult to directly compare the magnitude of various loss sources.

  3. 3. Modeling and Control of VSC-HVDC Links Connected to Weak AC Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Lidong Zhang; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : Control; modeling; multivariable feedback control; HVDC; power systems; stability; subsynchronous torsional interaction; voltage-source converter; weak ac systems;

    Abstract : For high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) transmission, the strength of the ac system is important for normal operation. An ac system can be considered as weak either because its impedance is high or its inertia is low. READ MORE

  4. 4. Numerical Studies of Methanol PPC Engines and Diesel Sprays

    University dissertation from Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Mateusz Pucilowski; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019-11-05]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Methanol; Partially Premixed Combustion PPC ; spray-wall interaction; piston geometry; multiple injections; ICE; ignition front; diffusion flame; combustion mode; RANS; LES; PPC; Diesel spray;

    Abstract : The global environment suffers from utilizing fossil fuels to powering internal combustion engines (ICE), due to the massive amounts of released CO2. Besides the global impact, the local environments experience high concentrations of harmful pollutants such as NOx, CO, soot and particulate matter (PM). READ MORE

  5. 5. Partial carbon capture – an opportunity to decarbonize primary steelmaking

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Abstract : Climate change requires that all energy-related sectors drastically reduce their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). To have a high likelihood of limiting global warming to 1.5°C, large-scale mitigation of GHG has to start being implemented and cause emissions to fall well before Year 2030. READ MORE
