  1. 1. Sustainable building ventilation solutions with heat recovery from waste heat

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Behrouz Nourozi; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wastewater heat recovery; balanced mechanical ventilation; defrosting reduction; heat recovery efficiency; thermal load shifting; renewables; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : The energy used by building sector accounts for approximately 40% of the total energy usage. In residential buildings, 30-60% of this energy is used for space heating which is mainly wasted by transmission heat losses. A share of 20-30% is lost by the discarded residential wastewater and the rest is devoted to ventilation heat loss. READ MORE

  2. 2. Waste heat recovery in a cruise vessel

    University dissertation from Kalmar : Linnaeus Universtity

    Author : Fredrik Ahlgren; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; whr; orc; ships; waste heat recovery; energy efficiency; cruise ships; Sjöfartsvetenskap; Maritime Science;

    Abstract : In three studies of a cruise ship the author has investigated waste heat recovery (WHR)from exhaust gases using an organic Rankine cycle (ORC), and also mapped the energyand exergy flows within the ship. Data were collected from the ship’s machinerysystem for a total extent of one year, and this data were used for simulations andenergy calculations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thermoelectric Ba8Ga16Ge30 clathrates for waste heat recovery

    University dissertation from Kalmar : Linnaeus Universtity

    Author : Daniel Cederkrantz; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; thermal stability; substitution; thermal conductivity; Seebeck coefficient; electrical resistance; Clathrates; Ba8Ga16Ge30; waste heat recovery; semiconductors;

    Abstract : The modern, highly industrialized, society of today requires huge amounts of energy to function. This has resulted in a heavy dependence on the very energy efficient fossil fuels, a source of energy which of course is not infinite and we are slowly approaching the day when oil runs out.

  4. 4. Waste Heat Recovery in Heavy Duty Diesel Engines

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Jelmer Johannes Rijpkema; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Organic Flash Cycle; Heavy Duty Diesel Engine; Organic Rankine Cycle; Trilateral Flash Cycle; Transcritical Rankine Cycle; Internal Combustion Engines; Waste Heat Recovery;

    Abstract : Over 50% of the energy released by burning fuel in a truck engine is lost as heat rather than being used to propel the vehicle. A promising method for capturing and reusing this heat, and thereby improving engine efficiency, is to exploit thermodynamic cycles for waste heat recovery (WHR). READ MORE

  5. 5. Exhaust Heat Utilisation and Losses in Internal Combustion Engines with Focus on the Gas Exchange System

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Habib Aghaali; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Turbocharger; heat transfer; heat loss; exhaust heat utilisation; waste heat recovery; turbocompound; divided exhaust period; internal combustion engine; gas exchange; pumping loss; variable valve timing; WHR; DEP; Turbo; värmeöverföring; värmeförluster; avgasvärme utnyttjande; förluster vid värmeåtervinning; turbocompound; delad avgasperiod; förbränningsmotor; gasväxling; pumpningsförlust; variabla ventiltider; WHR; DEP; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Exhaust gas energy recovery should be considered in improving fuel economy of internal combustion engines. A large portion of fuel energy is wasted through the exhaust of internal combustion engines. Turbocharger and turbocompound can, however, recover part of this wasted heat. READ MORE
