  1. 1. Modern Thermal Power Plants - Aspects on Modelling and Evaluation

    Author : Klas Jonshagen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; T-Q diagram; Combined cycle; heat- and mass-balance modelling; carbon capture; CO2;

    Abstract : The European Union (EU) has laid down very clear objectives for the reduction of greenhouse gases in the hope that it will prevent or mitigate climate change. Political incentives are used to make the power industry adopt changes in order to reach these EU targets. READ MORE

  2. 2. A Thermoeconomic Evaluation of CO2 Capture with Focus on Gas Turbine-Based Power Plants

    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Björn Fredriksson Möller; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Termisk teknik; climate change; optimisation; genetic algorithms; applied thermodynamics; Thermal engineering; AZEP; GTPOM; gas turbine; CO2 capture; thermoeconomy; termodynamik;

    Abstract : The increasing emissions of carbon dioxide from fossil fuel burning are today thought to be one of the main contributors to global warming. At the same time, developing countries are striving for an increased welfare and burning more fossil fuel, which in turn is augmenting the greenhouse gas effect. READ MORE

  3. 3. CFD Modeling of Turbulent Flows in Industrial Applications with Emphasis on Premixed Combustion in Gas Turbines

    University dissertation from Department of Heat and Power Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Ulf Engdar; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; framdrivningssystem; Motorer; turbulence and premixed combustion modeling ; CFD modeling ; level-set flamelet library approach ; emissions ; gas turbine ; compressor washing ; spray modeling ; Technological sciences; Teknik; Energy research; Energiforskning; Thermal engineering; applied thermodynamics; Termisk teknik; Motors and propulsion systems; termodynamik;

    Abstract : Increasing restrictions on hazardous emissions combined with demands for good profitability from the operators in the energy market have contributed strongly to the development of innovations in which the emphasis is on low emissions and high efficiency. For gas turbine-based power plants, emission of NOx in particular is governed by stringent legislation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Humidification Processes in Gas Turbine Cycles

    University dissertation from Division of Thermal Power Engineering Department of Energy Sciences Faculty of Engineering Lund University

    Author : Marcus Thern; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; applied thermodynamics; Thermal engineering; Energiforskning; Energy research; HAT; Biomass; Biofuel; Humidification; Evaporation; Evaporative gas turbine ; Humid air turbine ; Termisk teknik; termodynamik;

    Abstract : The global climate change caused by emissions of greenhouse gases from combustion processes has been recognized as a continuously growing problem and much research focuses on improving the environmental performance of gas turbines. The potential of improving gas turbine component efficiencies has become smaller each decade and therefore, thermodynamic cycles have become more interesting for power producing units. READ MORE

  5. 5. Steam Turbine Optimisation for Solar Thermal Power Plant Operation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : James Spelling; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : solar thermal power; steam-turbine; start-up; cool-down; dispatchability increase; koncentrerad solenergi; ångturbin; uppstart; nedkylning; ökad flexibilitet;

    Abstract : The provision of a sustainable energy supply is one of the most important issues facing humanity at the current time, given the strong dependence of social and economic prosperity on the availability of affordable energy and the growing environmental concerns about its production. Solar thermal power has established itself as a viable source of renewable power, capable of generating electricity at some of the most economically attractive rates. READ MORE
