Hydrogen Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cell technology is becoming increasingly popular in the transportation sector, especially the automotive industry. It can power electric drives by converting hydrogen into electricity in a chemical reaction with oxygen, whose products consist only of water. Therefore, hydrogen PEM fuel cell-based...

This study focuses on investigating an alternative validation method to validate the compressor side of turbochargers. Nowadays, the performance of turbochargers is tested using hot gas stands. These hot gas stands are expensive. The application of an externally coupled e-motor to the turbocharger eliminates the need for a hot gas burner -...

Ventilation events are the result of masses of air being transported from the water surface along the hull, through the propeller plane. Previous research in literature has shown that ventilation induces large and sudden variations of the load on the propeller. The response of the propulsion system had not been documented before. This is a...

In the competitive automotive market, the performance of turbochargers is constantly being pushed towards their theoretical optimum. One of the key components of the turbocharger is the rotor-bearing system, which determines the friction losses and noise output and furthermore affects the overall turbocharger efficiency, reliability and cost. In...

The time a naval combatant can be deployed for a mission is limited by its dependency on supplies. At a certain point the ship needs to leave the area of operations to be replenished in a harbour or by a support ship. Moreover, the Royal Netherlands Navy has a societal obligation to reduce its environmental impact, in particular on global...

The Diesel A model has been developed with the idea of looking at overall engine cycle performance in a larger system. As such, the goal has always been to provide an acceptable prediction of the engine performance without sacrificing the computational performance of the model. The simplest form of the Diesel A model has only a single integrator...

Floating ring bearings are the commonly used type of bearing for automotive turbochargers. The automotive industry continuously investigates how to reduce the bearing friction losses and how to create silent turbochargers. Many of these studies involve creating a numerical model of the rotor-bearing system and performing validation on a test...

A solar powered micro gas turbine is a new technique which is currently under development. Although promising, a turbocharger as replacement for a micro gas turbine could provide a simple, compact and low cost alternative. Therefore this research focusses on the energetic and technical performance expectations of a turbocharger based solar micro...

Sequential turbocharging is a technique where multiple turbochargers are connected to an engine. These turbochargers are switched in sequentially. The manufacturers of engines with this system claim that the part-load and transient performance is better in comparison to engines with a single turbocharger. These claims and other effects in these...

The first part of this thesis elaborates on two numerical models of different levels of comprehensiveness of a Laval rotor on plain journal bearings. These models are compared to an experiment, capable of rotating at 60 krpm, also devised in this research. Reasonable correlation in terms of whirl and whip behavior has been found. In the second...
