The vast majority of energy conversion systems currently makes use of fossil fuels, whose combustion generates harmful greenhouse gases. Transitioning to renewable energy sources is thus paramount to limiting the environmental impact of human activities on the climate. In this regard, the harvesting of wasted thermal energy constitutes a...

In this work we examine the flow deviation and its relationship to critical choking, i.e., choking of the meridional component of velocity, in transonic turbine cascades operating with non-ideal compressible flows. To this purpose, a generalized expression of the corrected flow per unit area as a function of both the thermodynamic state and...

The need for more efficient, cheaper, easily producible solar cells is growing as this combination of attributes can decrease the levelized cost of energy (LCOE). A two­terminal (2T) Perovskite and galliuminidium­gallium­selenide (Pvk/CIGS) tandem cell is an excellent candidate, as it can have a power conversion efficiency (PCE) of +30%, can be...

Prior to the detailed design of turbines, turbomachinery engineers must rely on mean-line and throughflow models to come to a preliminary design. These models are based on empirical loss correlations and are often derived from cascade experiments and numerical analyses that are confined to the subsonic and transonic regime. Axial turbines for...

High temperature Organic Rankine Cycles power systems of low power capacity, i.e. 3-50 kW<sub>e</sub>, are receiving recognition for distributed and mobile energy generation applications. For this type of power plants, it is customary to adopt a radial-turbine as prime mover, essentially for their ability to cope with very large volumetric...
