Goudriaan, R.J. (author)
At the Paris climate conference in December 2015, 195 countries adopted the first ever universal, legally binding global climate agreement. This combined with the depletion of fossil fuels drives the interest in renewable energy technologies. The thermal gradient in the ocean is a largely untapped source of renewable energy. It can be utilized...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a renewable energy technology which can operate as a base load source of energy in equatorial areas. By converting the thermal energy of the sun stored in the oceans into electricity, this technology provides a sustainable solution for tropical islands. One of the key factor to accelerate the roadmap...

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 dissertation crystallization and microencapsulation processes are used to produce multicomponent particulate products with different functionalities (improved stability, controlled release, protection from environment, etc.) and their performance is assessed. Additionally, the interactions between the components in the processes are...

Roks, G.M. (author)
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...

The Oscillatory Flow Baffled Crystallizer (OFBC) design has been proven to offer improved temperature control and near plug plow residence time distributions, while at the same time providing large residence times. These OFBC properties hold the promise of resulting in a narrow crystal size distribution, reduced residence time requirements and...

The scope of this thesis is to study new methods for control of the most important phenomena in crystallization processes: nucleation and crystal growth. In order to achieve this, novel process equipment, which utilize alternative driving forces, were developed. It was proven that primary nucleation for solution crystallization can be controlled...

This thesis investigates various operational aspects of Gas Turbine Combined Cycle Power Plants (GTCC). GTCC power plants are expected to play an increasingly important role in the balancing of supply and demand in the electricity grid. Although originally meant for predominantly base load operation with high efficiencies, market circumstances,...

A numerical study of swimming particle motion and nutrient transport is conducted for a semidilute to dense suspension in a thin film. The steady squirmer model is used to represent the motion of living cells in suspension with the nutrient uptake by swimming particles modelled using a first-order kinetic equation representing the absorption...

Hattiangadi, A. (author)
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...

Van Wijhe, A. (author)
Flue gas from combustion or syngas from gasification can contain fine particles, so called aerosols. These can be potentially harmful for downstream equipment or if emitted to the atmosphere, be inhaled by humans and cause respiratory problems. Standard practice to mitigate this is to use a cyclone which has a low filtration efficiency for sub...

In recent years, non-invasive velocity field measurement based on correlation of ultrasound images has been introduced as a promising technique for fundamental research into disease processes, as well as a diagnostic tool. A major drawback of the method is the relatively limited dynamic range when conventional echography equipment is used. We...

This paper discusses and compares several methods, which aim to remove spurious peaks, i.e. ghost particles, from the volume intensity reconstruction in Tomographic-PIV. The assessment is based on numerical simulations of timeresolved tomographic-PIV experiments in linear shear flows. Within the reconstructed volumes intensity peaks are detected...

Current energy production is done in a way that cannot be sustained ultimately. Biomass is ideal as a sustainable alternative because it can be used in the existing energy infrastructure. For coal power plants verge grass is one of the products being considered for co-firing. The moisture content and its bioactivity currently prevent direct co...

Plans have been made to change the current district heating grid at the TU Delft to a smart thermal grid. New heat suppliers will be connected to the grid including a geothermal well and waste heat from the Schie area. The heating grid will change from a demand driven grid to a combination of demand and supply driven heating grid. Demand side...

The aim of this thesis is to study multicomponent diffusion in liquids using Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. Diffusion plays an important role in mass transport processes. In binary systems, mass transfer processes have been studied extensively using both experiments and molecular simulations. From a practical point of view, systems...
