  • Second law analyses on oxy-fuel combustion of gaseous fuels

    The exergy losses in the adiabatic premixed oxy-fuel combustion are quantitatively analysed. The global exergy loss decreases with increasing equivalence ratio. The exergy loss of chemical reaction is comparable to that of internal thermal energy exchange for low equivalence ratio while that of mixing process is negligible. To keep similar thermodynamic characteristics of conventional combustion, ...

  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • Energy and exergy analyses of an integrated fuel cell and absorption cooling system

    In this study, we carry out detailed energy and exergy analyses of a PEM fuel cell integrated with triple effect ammonia-water absorption cooling system and investigate the effect of different operating parameters such as pressure, temperature, membrane thickness and current density of the fuel cell on the outputs of the fuel cell, and COP of the cooling system. The results show that fuel cell ...

  • Analysing coloured smoke | Pearl or Quest?

    Coloured smoke consists of an aerosol of tiny particles which is combusted or vaporized. The particular pigment or dye of each colour affects the colour of the smoke. The mixture usually includes a cool-burning formula based on potassium chlorate oxidiser, dextrin or lactose as fuel. Then one or more dyes are introduced to account for around half of the mixture. A small amount of sodium ...

  • Wood fuels sources and markets

    Biomass energy is an important source of energy in most Asian countries. Households and industries use substantial amounts of fuel wood, charcoal and other biomass energy, such as agricultural residues, dung, leaves and sawmill residues. The main household applications are cooking and heating whereas industrial applications range widely. This paper provides an overview of estimates on the ...

  • Vibration testing of fuel probes

    Aerial Refuelling The American Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey is a multimission, military, tilt rotor aircraft with both a vertical and short takeoff and landing capability. It combines the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the high-speed cruise performance of a long-range turboprop aircraft. But even though it is long-range, some missions require in-flight refuelling. The V-22 Osprey can ...

  • Methods of oil/fuel analysis

    PC GlobeCore can propose you to make a reclaiming test of yours example of fuel (oil) to verify the possibility of clean it. If the oil is contaminated and not suitable for use, filtration can be recommended. Or, you can also make this test by yourself using our laboratory/test-bench transformer oil vacuum regeneration system UVR. The regenerated samples exceeded yours expectations. Average ...

  • The technoeconomic assessment of the hydrogen fuel chain

    Options for hydrogen fuel chain are compared with the existing petroleum-based fuel chain for transportation. The criteria used are the life cycle cost (Rs/km), Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions (g/km) and Nonrenewable Energy (NRE) consumption (MJ/km). Four hydrogen production methods, one hydrogen transport method, three hydrogen storage methods and two on-board energy conversion methods are ...

  • EU fuel quality monitoring — 2014

    Each year, under the requirements of the European Union (EU) Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) (1), EU Member States must report various types of information relating to the quality of petrol and diesel fuels sold in their territories. More specifically, Member States must sample fuels each year and analyse their technical characteristics to ensure that they are consistent with the requirements of the ...

  • Methanol blending is alternative fuel of the future

    The main objective of “alcohol fuel power” field is increase of fuel resources for transport by using right alternative  such as ethanol and methanol blending with gasoline, which unlike pure oil fuel, are characterized renewable and have unlimited sources of raw materials. Margin of oil (valuable hydrocarbonic raw materials for petrochemical productions) and also a power ...

  • Key Questions for Analysts of Energy Balances and Other Policy Analyses

    Untitled Document The United States imports approximately one third of its energy sources, mostly in the form of petroleum. 1 Heightened interest in finding alternative fuels, ...

  • Thorium dioxide as a nuclear fuel: a scientometric analysis

    The present study is aimed at analysing the growth of publications on thorium dioxide (ThO2). INIS database is used as a source to analyse the focused areas of this field for the period 1970–2011. The database contained 2337 publications on thorium dioxide. The study analysed the broad features of literature on thorium dioxide, focusing on year–wise publications, highly ...

  • Sample preparation for the analysis of secondary fuel in cement plants

    Secondary fuel can be a very inhomogeneous sample, containing all types of polymers, paper, wood and low fractions of metal. Also recycled wood or parts of automobile tires might be used as secondary fuel. Before using it as fuel in the production of cement, several chemical analyses are necessary as quality control. Cement is made by heating limestone (calcium carbonate), with small quantities ...

  • Modelling of water consumption in a spent fuel storage facility

    In current practice, spent fuel is most commonly stored in a special basin of distilled or demineralised water for a required time period to reduce the amount of heat generated by radioactive decay to a level that can permit reprocessing. The processes taking place inside the spent fuel induce complex processes in the storage basin. The loss of water from the storage basin by means of ...
