  1. 1. Mixing and Stagnation in Drinking Water Storage Tanks

    Författare :Ola Nordblom; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :storage tank; service reservoir; jet mixing; khappa - epsilon model; stagnation; tracer test; temperature measurement; thermal stratification; buoyant jets; CFD model;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis contributes to studies of the assessment of mixing conditions in drinking water storage tanks and analyses of parameters governing mixing rates and formation of stagnant zones. The work also contributes to a validation of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models of jet-forced mixing in storage tanks under neutral and thermally stratified conditions. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Three-Dimensional Simulation and Physical Modelling of Flows in Detention Tanks - Studies of Flow Pattern, Residence Time and Sedimentation

    Författare :Åsa Adamsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :tracer study; pond; numerical simulation; particle tracking; CFD; bed shear stress; storage tank; stormwater; detention tank; flow pattern;

    Sammanfattning : Improving effluent water quality to receiving waters using stormwater ponds and storage tanks is acknowledged to be an effective method. The performance of the method depends however on flow conditions such as velocity distribution, short-circuiting currents and the volume through which the influent water flows, the so called effective volume.

  4. 4. Smart control of PV and exhaust air heat pump systems in single-family buildings

    Författare :Emmanouil Psimopoulos; Joakim Widén; Chris Bales; Tomas Persson; Jarek Kurnitski; Dalarna University; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; photovoltaics; heat pump; forecast services; thermal storage; electrical storage; control algorithms; TESHP Test av solvärmepumpsystem; TESHP Test av solvärmepumpsystem;

    Sammanfattning : Recently, decentralized household photovoltaic (PV) systems have become more affordable and there is a tendency to decrease subsidies for the PV excess electricity fed into the grid. Therefore, there is growing interest in methods to increase the self-consumption (SC), which is the part of the electricity produced by PV and directly consumed on buildings. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Alloys in Contact with Molten Salts for Thermal Storage Applications

    Författare :Esraa Hamdy Mohamedin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Concentrated solar power CSP ; Phase transition; Thermal energy storage TES ; Carburisation; Alumina-forming alloys; High-temperature corrosion; Molten salts; Laves phase;

    Sammanfattning : The combination of a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant and a thermal energy storage (TES) system is a promising technology for power generation, in that it overcomes the challenges commonly faced by renewable energy systems, such as intermittency, dispatchability, and the gap between the energy supply and energy demand. The third generation (Gen3) CSP plants are designed to increase plant efficiency by using supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) instead of steam for the Brayton cycle gas turbines, requiring a minimum operating temperature of 750°C for the TES materials.
