  1. 1. Characterization of Cobalt Prussian Blue Analogue in Capacitive Deionization

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Zaid Akrawi; Twana Hassan Cheragwandi; [2022]
    Keywords : capacitive deionization; CDI; water purification; Prussian Blue; electrochemistry;

    Abstract : Clean, drinkable water is nowadays taken for granted in most developed coun-tries. However, over two billion people in the world do not have access to drink-ing water. In an attempt to combat this, capacitive deionization (CDI) hasgained increased attention in recent years. READ MORE

  2. 2. Prototyping of an automated cyclic Neutron Activation Analysis setup

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kärnfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Cornelius Maurer; [2022]
    Keywords : Nuclear Physics; Neutron activation analysis; cyclic-NAA; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : A prototype Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA) setup based on a Deuterium-Tritium (DT) neutron generator is under development at Lund University. It serves as proof-of-principle for NAA based on a Compact Accelerator-driven Neutron Source. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design of high performance buildings : Vulnerability of buildings to climate change from an energy perspective

    University essay from KTH/Hållbara byggnader

    Author : Robin Gobert; [2022]
    Keywords : Climate Change; High Performance Buildings; Dynamic Thermal Simulations; Thermal Regulation; Environmental Regulation; Cooling Needs; Heating Needs; Representative Data; Big Data; Clustering;

    Abstract : The challenge of climate change is twofold: to mitigate (prevent) the causes of climate change and to prepare (adapt) to the inevitable effects and consequences. Building and construction are key sectors for decarbonisation (mitigation). READ MORE

  4. 4. Parametric Analysis of Thermal Comfort and Energy Efficiency in a Building Located in Different Climate Regions

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Energisystem och byggnadsteknik

    Author : Nikolaos Patsatzis; [2022]
    Keywords : building; thermal comfort; simulation;

    Abstract : One of the biggest challenges of a residential building, when it is designed, is to be energy efficient and to provide simultaneously many hours of thermal comfort throughout the year. So, this was the scope of this thesis: to perform a parametric analysis of thermal comfort and energy efficiency in a house that was designed for the climate of Gotland in Sweden. READ MORE

  5. 5. Physics-Enhanced Machine Learning for Energy Systems

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för reglerteknik

    Author : Henrik Lindström; Emil Sundström; [2022]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Building operations account for a large amount of energy usage and the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) systems are the largest consumer of energy in this sector. To reduce this demand, more energy-efficient control algorithms are implemented and a popular choice for a controller is the model predictive control. READ MORE
