Aggarwal, Pulkit (author)
The growing environmental concerns has put a lot of political & ethical pressure on the conventional industrial practices. The research community is ever so eager to investigate new technologies that can offer an efficient and environmentally sound solution to the issues caused by the polluting industrial processes. One of the potential...

Increasing concerns about the effects of freeing large quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere have sparked interest in organic Rankine cycle for renewable power systems. Single-stage radial inflow turbines appear as suitable expansion devices for this type of application. However, supersonic conditions can be reached in the stator of...

There is an ever-growing need for clean renewable energy in modern day society. Currently, major developments are being made on Decentralised Power conversion systems that use renewable energy sources. The application of ORC radial-flow turbines in Decentralised Power conversion applications seems promising, however, application of this...

Since the problem of global warming has been broadly considered as vital and due to constantly rising oil prices, further fossil fuels exploitation requires diametrical changes immediately. The demand for environmentally friendly improvements does not only entail searching for new resources but also utilizing those which are available and more...

The Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) is a thermodynamic cycle for the conversion of heat into electricity. ORC technology is applied to waste heat, biomass and natural heat sources, there is currently over 2000 MW installed capacity worldwide. Triogen is a Dutch company producing standardized ORC modules for the application with gaseous (waste) heat...

In this research a case study is performed to vapor formation in a turbine bearing. As a result of centrifugal forces in the rotating lubricant flow, low pressure regions occur in the bearing chamber. It is expected that vapor starts to form above a certain rotor speed. The formation of gaseous lubricant is presumed detrimental to the operation...

Nowadays Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) power systems are of paramount importance to exploit waste heat and renewable energy sources. Standard design rules and empirical models are mostly available for steam/gas turbines and can not be directly applied for ORC. Because of this, a redefinition of the design strategy is needed, starting from the...

The Organic Rankine Cycle is an energy conversion cycle similar to the conventional Rankine cycle which runs on a working fluid other than water. The selection of a working fluid is a critical part of designing an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system. The number of fluid types actually used in commercial ORC power plants do not justify the number...

A bio-refinery concept was defined with the Aspen software. This bio-refinery concept turns water hyacinth into furfural and syngas. Biomass undergoes a hydrolysis at 180ÂșC and 10 bars. The residues are processed in supercritical gasifier to produced syngas. This thesis aims at improving the energy efficiency of this concept by implementing an...
