  1. 1. Major Component Replacement on Floating Wind Turbines

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Kilian Galle; [2023]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Among the challenges that floating offshore wind (FOW) energy faces today, operation and maintenanc ecosts, and especially major component replacements (MCR), are an important cost reduction lever. MCRs are defined as any failure on a wind turbine requiring the change of an entire main component of the turbine, such as a gearbox, generator, blade, nacelle, etc. READ MORE

  2. 2. Transverse Momentum Spectra in pp collisions (\sqrt{s}\) = 7 TeV and \(\sqrt{s}\) = 13 TeV in ALICE

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

    Author : Andreas Stokkeland; [2023]
    Keywords : Multiplicity; Multiplicity classes; Soft interactions; Quark Gluon Plasma; QGP; transverse momentum; p_T; Chi-squared; fits; fit functions; Levy; Lévy; Exponential; BGBW; Boltzmann-Gibbs blast-wave; Fermi-Dirac; Bose-Einstein; Boltzmann; pion; kaon; proton; transverse momentum spectra; p_T spectra; surface velocity; Minimum Bias; MB; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this project particle production as a function of transverse momentum (\(p_{\rm T}\)) in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy (\(\sqrt{s}\)) of 7 TeV and 13 TeV has been studied. The transverse momentum is interesting to study since it reflects momentum created in the collision (before the collision, all momentum is in the beam - going in a longitudinal direction) and therefore gives information on the collision dynamics.

  3. 3. Design of a small-scale wave energy converter

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för elektroteknik

    Author : Sumaya Farjana; [2022]
    Keywords : small-scale point absorber; scaling factors; damping coefficient;

    Abstract : In this study, a small-scale point absorber wave energy converter has been designed contemplating a full-scaled point absorber in the Mediterranean Sea state. The scaling factor for the small-scaled version has been determined by the damping coefficient calculation of the power take-off in 1:10, 1:15, and 1:20 scaling factors. READ MORE

  4. 4. One-Dimensional Velocity Distributions of Fast Ions under RF Heating Including Doppler Shift in Tokamaks

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Lukas Bähner; [2022]
    Keywords : plasma; fusion; ICRH; Ion Cyclotron Resonance Heating; RF; radio frequency; Fokker-Planck equation; Fokker-Planck solver; quasilinear operator; Coulomb collision; Doppler shift; velocity distribution; local temperature; plasma; fusion; ICRH; joncyklotronuppvärmning; RF; radiofrekvens; Fokker-Planck-ekvationen; Fokker-Planck-lösare; kvasilinjär operator; Coulombkollisioner; Dopplerskift; hastighetsfördelning; lokal temperatur;

    Abstract : The goal of nuclear fusion research is to create a clean and virtually limitless energy source. In order to that, a plasma must be heated to hundreds of millions degrees Celsius. A commonly used heating mechanism is ion cyclotron resonance heating, where antennas emit radio waves into the plasma. READ MORE

  5. 5. Climate impact of energy retrofitting measures : An analysis of energy and carbon payback times for replacing windows

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Energisystem och byggnadsteknik

    Author : Mari Rosenkvist; [2022]
    Keywords : energy payback time; carbon payback time; building refurbishment LCA;

    Abstract : The European Commission has proposed a “renovation wave” to increase energy efficiency in buildings. Retrofitting can decrease operational energy usage but requires material production. READ MORE
