  1. 1. Techno-Economic Analysis of an Innovative Purely Solar Driven Combined Cycle System based on Packed Bed TES Technology

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

    Author : Tianqi Ruan; [2019]
    Keywords : Tower CSP Techno-economic analysis; Dynamic simulation; Tower CSP teknisk-ekonomisk analys; Dynamisk simulering;

    Abstract : With increasing awareness of environmental issues and worldwide requirements for sustainable development, renewable energy technologies with lower environmental impact, especially those having abundant resources like wind and solar energy, attract more attention. Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is one of the most promising solar energy technologies. READ MORE

  2. 2. An ICE concept optimized for Series Hybrid Application : A dive into how an ICE pairs with a Series hybrid drivetrain

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik; Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Axel Wallenberg; Alexander Frosteman; [2019]
    Keywords : Series hybrid; automobile; internal combustion engine;

    Abstract : This report is a theoretical study of the potential an ICE (internal combustion engine) has when combined with the load case of a high-performance series hybrid drivetrain. It breaks down the different theoretical variables that affect engine efficiency and possible limitations that arise. READ MORE

  3. 3. Control of a Hydraulic Hybrid System for Wheel Loaders

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Fluida och mekatroniska system; Linköpings universitet/Fluida och mekatroniska system

    Author : Christopher Reichenwallner; Daniel Wasborg; [2019]
    Keywords : EMS; Energy management strategy; Rule-based; Hydraulic hybrid; Wheel loader; Construction machinery; SLC; Short loading cycle; Torque converter; Energy recuperation; Energy efficiency; Backward simulation;

    Abstract : In recent years many companies have investigated the use of hybrid technology due to the potential of increasing the driveline’s efficiency and thus reducing fuel consumption. Previous studies show that hydraulic hybrid technology can be favourable to use in construction machinery such as wheel loaders, which often operate in repetitive drive cycles and have high transient power demands.
