Excessive consumption of non - renewable resources in the recent times has negative effects on the environment, one of the important of which include global warming. This suggests an urgent need for adaption to the sustainable use of the resources, for which the thermal technologies show a lot of scope. Absorption heat pump is a type of heat...

Buildings contribute to 30% of global CO<sub>2</sub> emissions and consume 40% of the global energy supply (Yang et al., 2014). Heating and cooling requirements of the buildings form the major part of the energy consumption in buildings (Culha et al., 2015). Thus to solve this problem, one of the solutions currently being<br/>looked at is to...

Passive measures to tackle increasing energy demands of modern buildings are aimed to generate energy from the roof or the ground beneath and by improving insulation to isolate indoors and outdoors. The author targets the opaque facade sections of a building to develop an active panel to exchange solar thermal energy with his project THERM...

Heat exchangers of any kind are exposed to thermal loading which have the potential to cause severe stresses on the equipment. The magnitude of these loads are far more pronounced when temperature differences occur. These may be during plant start-up or shut-down due to the transient nature of the temperature profiles or even imbalances that...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between the surface and deep layers to generate electricity. The temperatures in the ocean hardly vary between day and night or between the seasons, which ensures a very constant energy production with OTEC. In order for OTEC to compete with the current forms of energy...

In the quest for renewable energy for tropical islands, Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) has revealed itself as one of the most promising technologies. OTEC stands or falls with the performance of the condenser. Plate Heat Exchangers (PHEs) have proven their selves as effective heat transfer<br/>equipment for low enthalpy cycles such as...

In a Borehole Thermal Energy Storage (BTES) system, heat is extracted from or injected to the subsurface, taking advantage of the relatively constant temperatures of the underground. Both thermal conduction and advection can influence the performance of BTES systems, but thermal advection is often neglected in the design process. However, in...

Range extended electric vehicles (REEV) are being considered as a possible solution for the electrification of passenger vehicles. The application of a recuperated gas turbine (GT) for REEVs shows potential in terms of power-to-weight ratio, emissions and cost. The recuperator plays a major role in achieving target efficiency, while being a main...

In the search for new forms of renewable energy production, an interesting option is to make use of the energy stored in the ocean in tropical areas. The sun heats up the surface water in these areas to a point it is feasible to generate electricity, using the temperature difference between the hot surface water and the cold ocean water at...

Bluerise has developed a system that uses cold seawater to cool down a fresh water loop. This loop is used for fresh water production. The goal of this study is to improve the overall heat transfer coefficient of the working medium in this system by at least 5%, which will also reduce its size. The overall heat transfer can be improved by adding...

Due to climate change and growing cities, water scarcity is becoming one of the futures biggest problems. On top of that, the population and prosperity of cities around the equator are growing fast. Meaning that the need for electricity, cooling and drinking water will grow fast in the following decades. ROTEC’s vision is that these growing...

Aviation has to reduce its emission. In the past the improvements of aero engine technology have been achieved by higher turbine inlet temperatures, higher overall pressure ratios, higher bypass ratios and more efficient components. However, these methods hold only limited potential for further improvements. Therefore, research into alternative...

An active fluid heat exchanger can be controlled effectively using Peltier elements to condition the temperature of the fluid flowing through the heat exchanger. The thermal resistance of the heat exchanger can be reduced to increase the speed of controlling the fluid's temperature. Topology optimization is used in this study to find the...

The energy consumption in the industry field is considerable. Saving energy has great potential in many industrial processes. For example, heat recovery from the spent cooling water can be achieved by applying heat pump technology, and the recovered heat can be used for district heating. Previous study indicates that the compression-resorption...

Waste heat recovery is essential to reduce energy consumption in industry. A heat pump can be used to upgrade waste heat to a temperature level that is suitable for process heat. This study concerns a compression-resorption heat pump. The goal is to optimise the heat pump energetically, while keeping the investment attractive. Entropy production...
