    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building simulation; combined heat and power; district heating; domestic hot water; energy efficiency; greenhouse gas emission; low-temperature; multi-family building; primary energy; refurbishment; byggnadsimulering; energieffektivitet; flerfamiljshus; fjärrvärme; kraftvärme; lågtemperatur; primärenergi; renovering; tappvarmvatten; växthusgas; Reesbe företagsforskarskola; Reesbe företagsforskarskola; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : Improving energy performance of existing buildings is an important part in decreasing energy use and in turn reducing greenhouse gas emissions and primary energy use. To be able to evaluate how energy refurbishment influences greenhouse gas emissions and primary energy use a wider system perspective is needed which puts the building in its context. READ MORE

  3. 23. Renewable diesel fuels and emission control strategies : Implications for occupational exposure, human health, and the environment

    Author : Louise Gren; NanoLund: Center for Nanoscience; []

    Abstract : Combustion of fossil diesel is a major environmental problem for both the climate and human health. Renewable diesel fuels have been developed and introduced to the market to reduce the net CO2 emissions. READ MORE

    Abstract : Brake systems are used to safely stop vehicles. The brake pads are pressed against the brake disc, transforming the kinetic energy of the vehicle into heat to be dissipated. READ MORE

  5. 25. Development of LPP-Burner for Industrial Gas Turbine Application

    Author : Jonas Holmborn; Strömningsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermal engineering; Dry Low Emission DLE ; Lean Partially Premix LPP ; Combustion; Gas Turbine; Burner; applied thermodynamics; Termisk teknik; termodynamik;

    Abstract : This thesis reports the work done in the development of a modified Lean Premix Prevaporised (LPP) burner for the use in Alstom Power Sweden’s industrial gas turbines. Incentive for the development of the modified burner have been the need to increase the flame stability over the operating range for the burner, especially for the liquid fuel but also the gaseous fuel operation.
