    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vacuum insulation panels; VIP; serpentine edge; thermal bridge; composite film; gas diffusion; defect dominated; holistic approach; building enclosure; integrated testing and modeling; energy equivalent; field performance; air flow; thermal insulation efficiency;

    Abstract : We are coming to realize that there is an urgent need to reduce energy usage in buildings and it has to be done in a sustainable way. This thesis focuses on the performance of the building envelope; more precisely thermal performance of walls and super insulation material in the form of vacuum insulation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Thermal Modelling of Small Cage Induction Motors

    Author : Gunnar Kylander; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : thermal network; thermal model; losses; TEFC; induction motor;

    Abstract : The loadability of electric machines is above all determined by temperature limits. In this work, thermal network models, suitable for totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) induction motors, are used to predict the machine temperatures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Characterization methods and modelling for Li-ion batteries: entropy, impedance, pressure, diffusivity & temperature swings induced aging

    Author : Zeyang Geng; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : characterization methods; swelling; temperature swing; model; impedance; lifetime; Li-ion batteries; thermal; pressure; entropy; aging;

    Abstract : Lithium-ion batteries are commonly used for energy storage systems, and temperature is one key impact factor on the cell performance and lifetime. In literature, the focus has been on the ambient temperature of the test condition, and there is little discussion about how the temperature swing during cycling affects the battery lifetime.

    Abstract : The thesis focuses on the efficiency of the space heating system. In particular, the efficiency factors measure the efficiency of thermal zone. The efficiency factors measures how the energy is used in a space heating. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modeling and Testing of Insulation Degradation due to Dynamic Thermal Loading of Electrical Machines

    Author : Zhe Huang; Industriell elektroteknik och automation; []
    Keywords : thermal degradation; thermal cycle; dynamic temperature; thermal-mechanical; fatigue; electrical insulation system; accelerated testing; condition monitoring; electrical machine; electrified vehicles;

    Abstract : Electrical machines in electrified vehicles are subjected to dynamic loadings at different driving conditions, which results in dynamic temperatures. The aging of the Electrical Insulation System (EIS) in electrical machines is caused by these dynamic temperatures, namely high average temperatures and temperature cycles. READ MORE
