  1. 1. Improving the Efficiency of Gas Engines using Pre-chamber Ignition

    Författare :Ashish Shah; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ignition system; high efficiency; pre-chamber ignition; natural gas; Internal combusiton engines;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this project is to explore and understand the combustion phenomenon in engines operating on gaseous fuels, and develop technologies as an alternative to the present diesel engine technologies for heavy duty applications; which are facing severe challenges like stringent emissions norms, high technology costs and unsustainable fuel supply. The studies presented in this thesis focus on the application of pre-chamber ignition system in heavy duty natural gas engines, as a means to improve fuel efficiency and reduce NOx emissions.

  2. 2. Analysis of Deformation of Gas Diffusion Layers and the Impact on Performance of PEM Fuel Cells

    Författare :Jiatang Wang; Värmeöverföring; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PEM fuel cell; compression ratio; assembly pressure; porosity; deformed GDL; electric resistance; transport phenomena; model; performance; analysis; OpenFOAM;

    Sammanfattning : Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells have been promoted due to significant breakthroughs in various aspects and increasing public interests. The porous features of the gas diffusion layer (GDL) and the necessary assembly processes generate localized pressure forces on the channel/shoulder structure of the bi-polar plates (BPP). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Experimental Studies of Advanced Ignition Systems for Lean Burn Natural Gas Engines

    Författare :Jessica Dahlström; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ignition system; spark energy; internal combustion engine; engine; spark ignition; natural gas;

    Sammanfattning : One of the greatest challenges for the transport sector today is reducing its environmental impact. This applies especially to the emission aspects, much due to increasingly stringent emissions legislations. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Experimental Investigations on Natural Gas-Diesel Dual Fuel Combustion

    Författare :Pablo Garcia; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Dual Fuel; Diesel; Natural Gas; Pilot Injection; Combustion Efficiency; Methane; Nitrogen Oxides; Lean operation; Ignition;

    Sammanfattning : Natural gas has been traditionally applied in spark-ignited combustion engines due to similar combustion characteristics for methane gas and gasoline. However, spark ignition requires a low compression ratio to avoid knock problems and therefore, gas engines have lower efficiency than diesel engines. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Developing Process Design Methodology for Investment Cast Thin-Walled Structures

    Författare :Mohsin Raza; Björn Fagerström; Mark Jolly; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Innovation and Design; innovation och design;

    Sammanfattning : Components for engineering systems, such as gas turbines and jet engines operating at high temperature are usually produced in superalloys. The investment casting process is most widely used for manufacturing these components due to the ability of the process to produce parts with complex geometries to close dimensional tolerances.
