Today’s renewables, wind and solar power, have a fluctuating nature, making the grid less stable.However, with the increasing share of intermittent sources of renewable power, novel options have to be created to stabilize the power grid. One of these options is energy storage via the conversion of excess power to hydrogen, during periods of high...

Energy storage systems are an emerging field of interest for the future of electrical grids. With the rapid growth of renewable but intermittent sources of electricity, energy storage systems can help smooth the variations, making the grid more stable and reducing the need for maintaining an overcapacity of power production infrastructure. Among...

Heat pipes are typically used in the semiconductor industry. This means that the scale of these heat pipes is typically in the order of centimeters. Zijm suggests that heat pipes could be used for geothermal applications, but literature is lacking. To further investigate the geothermal application of heat pipes, a large scale heat pipe is built....

Water is the most dominant substance on the planet and has always been a synonym for life. On this planet, water has always been plentiful. Therefore, the conclusion of the United Nations in 2015 was even more shocking. The United Nations estimated that in 2030 a water gap would exist of 40%. The withdrawal of fresh water would be 40% larger...

Restrictions on NOx emissions are increasingly stricter. In order to reduce the emissions of a gas turbine, manufacturers moved from diffusion-flames to lean premixed flames in their combustion process. However lean premixed flames are prone to (transverse) combustion instabilities. These instabilities consists of thermoacoustically driven...

Firing industrial installations, like boilers, with a cogeneration gas turbine instead of a classic burner have several beneficial aspects. A cogeneration system allows for a more efficient utilization of energy and lowered emissions. What makes such a system especially interesting is that the revenue of the generated electrical power can...

The major challenges in the world today is to reduce pollutant emissions from gas turbines while still being able to retain the maximum efficiency in the gas turbine. Especially due to stringent norms on emissions, the research on gas turbines have increased to reduce NOx levels. Most of the gas turbines have been using non-premixed combustion...

Laminar-turbulent transition (LTT) is the process through which smooth laminar flow transits into chaotic turbulent flow. Investigation of the paths taken to transit into turbulence is a front-runner among other methods followed to characterise turbulent flows. This is of particular importance in aerospace and energy industries for the design of...

A liquid film falling vertically along a wall results in the formation of waves at the liquid-gas interface. The principal forces in these flows are gravity, viscosity, and surface tension, which are characterized by the Reynolds number, Re and the Kapitza number, Ka. Experimental characterization of the film flows for high viscosity liquids (Ka...

Solid oxide fuel cell exhibits its advantages such as fuel variability. Capable of running on renewable fuels, SOFCs are regarded as potential solution to carbon-neutral energy conversion path. SOFCs operate on fuel supplied to the anode and oxidant supplied to the cathode. The anode should facilitate the oxidation of fuel and transport of...
