  1. 1. Hydrogen Generation for Fuel Cells in Auxiliary Power Systems

    Författare :Marita Nilsson; Lars J. Pettersson; Gunther Kolb; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; autothermal reforming; auxiliary power unit; diesel; dimethyl ether; fuel cell; fuel-flexible reformer; hydrogen; PdZn alloy; reforming catalyst; reformer design; Rh; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Heavy-duty trucks are in idle operation during long periods of time, providing the vehicles with electricity via the alternator at standstill. Idling trucks contribute to large amounts of emissions and high fuel consumption as a result of the low efficiency from fuel to electricity. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Cascaded Converters with Gate-Commutated Thyristors : Experimental Verification and Auxiliary Power Supply

    Författare :Tomas Modeer; Hans-Peter Nee; Staffan Norrga; Dragan Jovcic; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes an effort to investigate the use of gate-commutated thyristors(GCTs) in cascaded converters. Cascaded converters, such as modularmultilevel converters (M2Cs) and cascaded H-bridge converters (CHBs), haveproved to be especially suitable in high-voltage, high-power applications. LÄS MER

  3. 3. RhPt and Ni based catalysts for fuel reforming in energy conversion

    Författare :Angélica Viviana González Arcos; Lars J. Pettersson; Klas Engvall; Anker Jensen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; RhPt bimetallic catalysts; Ni catalysts; ceria-zirconia; potassium tungsten bronze; zirconium dioxide; autothermal reforming; biodiesel; diesel; sulfur; deactivation; tar reforming; steam reforming; biomass gasification; auxiliary power units; naphthalene; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Although current trends in global warming are of great concern, energy demand is still increasing, resulting in increasing pollutant emissions. To address this issue, we need reliable renewable energy sources, lowered pollutant emissions, and efficient and profitable processes for energy conversion. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Hydrogen generation from dimethyl ether by autothermal reforming

    Författare :Marita Nilsson; Lars Pettersson; Ann Cornell; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; autothermal reforming; auxiliary power unit; dimethyl ether; fuel cell; hydrogen; palladium; reforming catalyst; temperature-programmed reduction; truck idling; X-ray diffraction; zinc; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Heavy-duty trucks are in idle operation during long periods of time, providing the vehicles with electricity via the alternator at standstill. Idling trucks contribute to large amounts of emissions and high fuel consumption as a result of the low efficiency from fuel to electricity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Rhodium diesel-reforming catalysts for fuel cell applications

    Författare :Xanthias Karatzas; Lars J. Pettersson; James Spivey; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Autothermal reforming; auxiliary power unit; BET; chemisorption; diesel; fuel cell; hydrogen; monolith; reforming catalyst; reformer design; Rh; RhPt alloy; TEM; TPO; TPR; XRD; XPS; zone coating; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Heavy-duty diesel truck engines are routinely idled at standstill to provide cab heating or air conditioning, and in addition to supply electricity to comfort units such as radio and TV. Idling is an inefficient and unfavorable process resulting in increased fuel consumption, increased emissions, shortened engine life, impaired driver rest and health, and elevated noise. LÄS MER
