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

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings Universitet

    Author : Sarah Broberg Viklund; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2015]
    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. 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

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. 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. READ MORE
