  1. 1. Development of a Nordic BWR plant model in APROS and design of a power controller using the control rods

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Jonathan Al-Ani; [2021]
    Keywords : APROS; Dynamic process simulation; System code; Nuclear reactor; nuclear power; BWR; Boiling Water Reactor; closed cycle; steam cycle; one-dimensional flow; Westinghouse; control rods; APROS; Dynamisk processimulering; Beräkningsmodell; Kärnkraft; BWR; Kokvattenreaktor; ångcykel; en-dimensionell flödesmodell; Westinghouse; kontrollstavar;

    Abstract : In this master thesis an input-model of a Nordic BWR power plant has been developed in APROS. The plant model contains key systems and major thermohydraulic components of the steam cycle, including I&C systems (i.e. power, pressure, level and flow controls). READ MORE

  2. 2. Techno-economic study for a 50 MW PV plant in Nigeria

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Jacob Kelly; [2021]
    Keywords : Photovoltaics; monofacial; bifacial; fixed mounting; single-axis tracking; inverter loading ratio; utility PV plant; solar farm; LCOE optimisation; Nigeria;

    Abstract : As part of Nigeria’s drive to increase electricity production capacity and shift to renewable sources, a new 50 MW photovoltaic (PV) plant is proposed for a town in north-west Nigeria. Rather than using conventional monofacial modules and fixed mounting, it is of interest to consider a selection of new technologies which are attracting growing attention in the global utility PV market.

  3. 3. Computational and accuracy benchmarking of simulation and system-theoretic models for production systems engineering

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : Antonio José Ramos Calderón; [2021]
    Keywords : DES; benchmarking; lean buffer; optimization; simulation software; performance measure; plant simulation; FACTS; PSE toolbox;

    Abstract : The modern industry has an increasing demand for simulation software able to help workers and decision-makers visualize the outputs of a specific process in a fast, accurate way. In this report, a comparative study between FACTS (Factory Analyses in ConcepTual phase using Simulation), Plant Simulation, and PSE (Production System Engineering) Toolbox is done regarding their capacity to simulate models with increasing complexity, how accurate they are in their outputs with different optimized buffer allocations, and how well they perform on the task of detecting the bottlenecks of a process.

  4. 4. Hydrodynamic modelling of fate and transport of natural organic matter and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances in Lake Ekoln

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Frida Ekman; [2021]
    Keywords : Ekoln; Natural organic matter NOM ; Total organic matter TOC ; Colour; degradation; sedimentation; photooxidation; PFAS; MIKE 3 FM; Ekoln; naturligt organiskt material NOM ; totalt organiskt kol TOC ; färg; nedbrytning; sedimentation; foto-oxidation; PFAS; MIKE 3 FM;

    Abstract : Societies are facing great challenges with obtaining a good quality and quantity of drinking water in the context of climate change. Increases in natural organic matter (NOM) and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been observed in lakes and drinking water the past years, which is of great concern for water treatment plants in Sweden.

  5. 5. A detailed study on Amazon Forest structure and mortality rates through LPJ-GUESS vegetation model

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Sara Mazzuoli; [2021]
    Keywords : Amazon s Forest; LPJ-GUESS; simulation; TEAM-NETWORK; dynamic vegetation model; observation; mortality; allometry; tree stand structure; biomass; cohort; PFTs; plant functional types; NPP; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Nowadays it has become relevant for scientists to understand the impact of tropical forest structure on the Global Carbon Cycle. Dynamic vegetation models have been developed to pursue this issue, specifically by improving algorithms that could analyze the allometry, biomass content and mortality rate of each singular simulated plant individual and how this responds to climate change, management and rising CO2 concentrations.
