  1. 1. Pilot Production and Manufacturing Start-up in the Automotive Industry. Principles for Improved Performance

    Author : Henrik Almgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; disturbance control; performance; verification; manufacturing start-up; learning; pilot production; Swedish automotive industry; product and production preparation;

    Abstract : The dissertation is based on experiences from Volvo Car Corporation and examines pilot production and manufacturing start-up, processes that are here combined under the rubric final verification of product and production system. The purpose of this dissertation is to study pilot production and manufacturing start-up in order, first, to identify and analyze factors affecting final verification performance and, secondly, to develop general principles for how final verification performance can be improved.

  2. 2. Start-up and operational strategies for deammonification plants : - a study with one-stage moving bed biofilm reactors treating reject water

    Author : Linda Kanders; Eva Thorin; Susanne Lackner; Mälardalens högskola; []

    Abstract : To limit eutrophication, wastewater treatment plants use biological methods to convert degraded nitrogen to nitrogen gas. Deammonification, or partial nitritation in combination with anammox, has been shown to be an energy efficient process. READ MORE

  4. 4. Steam Turbine Thermal Modeling for Improved Transient Operation

    Author : Monika Topel; Björn Laumert; Konstantinos Kyprianidis; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; steam turbines; transients; start-up; finite element model; heat transfer; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : The growing shares of renewable energy sources in the market and solar thermal power applications have set higher requirements on steam turbine operation.These requirements are related to flexibility during transients. A key aspect sought of such flexibility is the capability for fast starts. READ MORE

  5. 5. Improving Concentrating Solar Power Plant Performance through Steam Turbine Flexibility

    Author : Monika Topel; Björn Laumert; Markus Jöcker; Magnus Genrup; Tony Arts; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Concentrating Solar Power; Steam Turbines; Transients; Start-up; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : The amount of incoming solar energy to earth is greater than any other source. Among existing technologies to harness solar energy there is concentrating solar power (CSP). One advantage of CSP is that is dispatchable, meaning that it can provide power even when the sun is not shining. READ MORE
