  1. 1. System studies of the use of industrial excess heat

    Author : Sarah Broberg Viklund; Magnus Karlsson; Mats Söderström; Semida Silveira; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; excess heat; waste heat; surplus heat; energy systems; greenhouse gas emissions; energy efficiency; energy policy; system studies;

    Abstract : Energy, materials, and by-products, can be exchanged between companies, having positive effects in the form of improved resource efficiency, environmental benefits, and economic gains. One such energy stream that can be exchanged is excess heat, that is, heat generated as a by-product during, for example, industrial production. READ MORE

  2. 2. Waste heat recovery in a cruise vessel

    University dissertation from Kalmar : Linnaeus Universtity

    Author : Fredrik Ahlgren; Marcus Thern; Aykut Ölcer; [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 Using Thermoelectricity and Silicon Carbide Power Electronics

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Arash Edvin Risseh; Hans-Peter Nee; Torbjörn Thiringer; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermoelectricity; Power converter; Silicon Carbide; MOSFET; Power management; Thermoelectric generator; Renewable energy; Vehicle; Power electronic; Waste heat; Ultra-low inductance; Power module; Termoelektrisk energiomvandling; Kiselkarbid MOSFET; Effektomvandlare; Förnybar energikälla; Effektelektronik; Spillvärme; Effektmodul; Låg induktiv module; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Energy consumption in the world has increased continuously due to a growing population and increased energy consumption per capita. Moreover, the largest part of consumed energy still comes from fossil sources which in 2016 was more than 130 PWh. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
