Download A Novel SOFC Tri-generation System for Building Applications by Theo Elmer PDF

By Theo Elmer

The thesis has significantly tested, either theoretically and experimentally, a unique tri-generation procedure idea - with encouraging process functionality tested. The thesis establishes the numerous power of the unconventional tri-generation method in offering potent outfitted atmosphere decarbonisation via decentralised iteration; strengthening the case for a destiny hydrogen economy.

In reaction to the severe have to decarbonise the equipped atmosphere, replacement equipment for greater strength utilisation have to be explored together with tri-generation platforms. The thesis provides the layout, improvement and checking out of a unique proof-of-concept tri-generation process in response to strong oxide gas phone (SOFC) and liquid desiccant air con expertise to supply electrical energy, heating and cooling to development purposes. No prior paintings has been stated on this kind of procedure. The subject matter of the paintings sits in the issues of low-carbon and sustainable power applied sciences, development prone and occasional carbon construction applications.

As a result, salts of weak organic acids such as potassium formate (CHKO2) have more recently been adopted (Dwyer 2014; Jradi and Riffat 2014a). 2 presents a detailed summary of the LiCl, CaCl2 and CHKO2 solutions, including: dehumidification potential, operating concentrations, physical characterisation and the advantages/disadvantages of their use. Currently, there is limited published and available literature within the public domain regarding the specific physical characterisation of the CHKO2 solution in the required operating range for liquid desiccant air conditioning applications.
