  2. 2. Turbo For Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för energivetenskaper

    Author : Adam Hansson; Mohammed Abu Al-Soud; [2022]
    Keywords : Turbo; Fuel Cell; Centrifugal Compressor; Radial Turbine; Axial Turbine; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Turbo systems have long been implemented into vehicles to increase the specific power. Increasing the pressure for conventional vehicles decreases the mass of the engine and increases the efficiency. Conventional vehicles do however produce carbon dioxide emissions which have become an increasing issue that needs a solution. READ MORE

  3. 3. Establishing a methodology to investigate factors that affect Tip Leakage Loss : In a small scale Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbine

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Mekanisk värmeteori och strömningslära

    Author : Anand Ashok Kaushik; [2022]
    Keywords : Ansys CFX; CFD; ORC; Turbines; Tip leakage; Internal flow; Loss; Entropy; Correlations;

    Abstract : With growing awareness and necessity for the world to move towards more sustainable (energy saving) forms of power generation, focus on the commercial use of Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbine systems has subsequently increased in turn. ORC systems with their modular design can thus help in recovering heat, obtained as a byproduct from a variety of industrial processes, and thereby increase their overall system efficiency.

    Keywords : Vertical axis windmills; Feasibility; VAWT in Sweden; Business Model; Renewable energy;

    Abstract : This project is a part of the master thesis for the course Energy smart innovation in the built environment at Halmstad University. This project is done to check the feasibility of VAWT on replacing traditional horizontal axis windmills, costly offshore windmills, and other renewables. READ MORE

  5. 5. QUANTIFYING ERRORS IN PITCH ANGLE POSITION USING BEM THEORY

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Sai Varun Kollappillai Murugan; [2021]
    Keywords : NREL; Qblade; SCADA; Pitch angle errors; Wind turbines;

    Abstract : The wind industry is always seeking ways to better understand the performance of a wind turbine and improve its efficiency. During the operation phase and maintenance, wind turbines go through regular optimization. Due to the regular change in wind speed and direction, wind turbines need to be regulated and positioned accordingly. READ MORE
