    Short term water heat storage: studies of velocity and temperature fields and their importance for sizing of the storage1993Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Short term water heat storage's have been introduced in many district heating systems. The main reason for this is the possibilities opened by the storage for optimization of the generation of heat and electricity in combined heat and power plants. The basic task for the storage is then to bridge the timevise gap between the heat demand and supply of heat from a cogeneration plant. Water heat storage's can also be useful in district heating systems supplied with industrial waste heat. The water volume in the storage must be stratified to avoid degradation of the quality of the heat that has been charged. Experimental studies of phenomena that influence the stratification and cause a degradation of the quality has been made in model storage's of different sizes The studies include extensive temperature measurements and velocity measurements with different techniques. Laser Doppler Anemometry was used to measure the vertical velocities in the boundary layer at the outer walls. The gradient zone was found to have a strong impact on the velocity field. The maximum velocity in the boundary layer was increasing due to available height up to a certain level where it remained constant. Particle Image Velocimetry Technique were used for measuring the two dimensional velocity field in seeded water in a plane illuminated by a laser. These measurements showed that large scaled convection cells appeared both above and below the gradient zone. The exchange of water between the boundary layer and the core was also shown in these experiments. A video based PIV-technique was developed where a complete charging experiment could be recorded on a video tape. The pictures were analysed in an image processing program which made it possible to evaluate the whole velocity field. On basis of simulations for a case study representing the district heating system in Piteå it was found that heat quality degradation is not essential for the optimization of the storage volume. The different phenomena that influence the quality degradation are important however for optimizing the shape of a storage of a given size. The results from the measurements in the model heat storage's are useful mainly for validation of computer models for numerical prediction of velocity and temperature fields and as a basis for planning of experiments in larger storage's of commercial size. It was therefore decided to include in the study an evaluation of the importance of heat quality degradation for sizing of short term water heat storage's.

    Use of video-based Particle Image Velocimetry technique for studies of velocity fields in a water heat storage vessel1995In: Experiments in Fluids, ISSN 0723-4864, E-ISSN 1432-1114, Vol. 18, no 5, p. 383-388Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A video-based Particle Image Velocimetry technique has been developed. The technique is particularly suitable for measurement of small velocities, below 3 cm/s. It has proved to be useful for the documentation of non-stationary velocity fields in a scaled-down model of a water heat storage vessel. An ordinary video camera is used to record the in-plane movements of particles in a light sheet in seeded water. The hardware used, the experimental method and the accuracy of the method are discussed. The use of two commercially available software packages (NIH-Image and IGOR) for the analyses is described. Examples of velocity fields are presented, showing that the measuring technique can be used for studies of mixing near the inlet of the storage vessel and exchange of water between the boundary layer and the core.

    Cost optimization of biofuel production: The impact of scale, integration, transport and supply chain configurations2017In: Applied Energy, ISSN 0306-2619, E-ISSN 1872-9118, Vol. 195, p. 1055-1070Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study uses a geographically-explicit cost optimization model to analyze the impact of and interrelation between four cost reduction strategies for biofuel production: economies of scale, intermodal transport, integration with existing industries, and distributed supply chain configurations (i.e. supply chains with an intermediate pre-treatment step to reduce biomass transport cost). The model assessed biofuel production levels ranging from 1 to 150 PJ a−1 in the context of the existing Swedish forest industry. Biofuel was produced from forestry biomass using hydrothermal liquefaction and hydroprocessing. Simultaneous implementation of all cost reduction strategies yielded minimum biofuel production costs of 18.1–18.2 € GJ−1 at biofuel production levels between 10 and 75 PJ a−1. Limiting the economies of scale was shown to cause the largest cost increase (+0–12%, increasing with biofuel production level), followed by disabling integration benefits (+1–10%, decreasing with biofuel production level) and allowing unimodal truck transport only (+0–6%, increasing with biofuel production level). Distributed supply chain configurations were introduced once biomass supply became increasingly dispersed, but did not provide a significant cost benefit (<1%). Disabling the benefits of integration favors large-scale centralized production, while intermodal transport networks positively affect the benefits of economies of scale. As biofuel production costs still exceeds the price of fossil transport fuels in Sweden after implementation of all cost reduction strategies, policy support and stimulation of further technological learning remains essential to achieve cost parity with fossil fuels for this feedstock/technology combination in this spatiotemporal context.

    The Concept of Dynamic Hosting Capacity for Distributed Energy Resources: Analytics and Practical Considerations2019In: Energies, ISSN 1996-1073, E-ISSN 1996-1073, Vol. 12, no 13, article id 2576Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The hosting capacity approach is presented as a planning, improving, and communication tool for electrical distribution systems operating under specific uncertainties, such as power quality issues, power stabilities, and reliability, among others. In other words, it is an important technique, when renewable sources are present, to answer the amount of power that is possible to supply to the system without trespassing power performance limits. However, the power flow in a distribution system, for instance, can change throughout time due to the penetration of distributed generation, as well as load consumption. Based on the dynamic nature existing in distribution grids nowadays, it is important to highlight that the hosting capacity should not be calculated in a specifically chosen time only, but must be analyzed throughout a period of time. Thus, this paper introduces an extended concept of hosting capacity in relation to an integrated impact of harmonic voltage distortion and voltage rise as a function of time for daily, weekly, monthly, or even yearly periods. This extended concept is named as Dynamic Hosting Capacity (DHC(t)). General aspects of DHC(t) are demonstrated via measured data on a photovoltaic system (PV) connected at a low-voltage (LV) side of a university building.

    Studies of two stage gas turbine combustor for biomass powder: Part 1 : atmospheric cyclone gasification experiments with wood powder1998Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report summarises the research and development work regarding development of a two stage gas turbine combustor for wood powder carried out at the Luleå University of Technology from July 1993 to December 1996. The process being studied is based on cyclone gasification of the wood powder and combustion of the product gas in a suitably adapted gas turbine combustion chamber, without other gas cleaning than that obtained by the cyclone. A critical issue to be studied in the project is if the burned gases from such a cyclone gasifier lead to acceptably low deposition rates for K- and Na-compounds in a gas turbine with 850°C inlet temperature. The project strategy has been to study wood powder feeding and cyclone gasification first at atmospheric pressure, then run separate pressurised cyclone gasification tests for studies of the possibilities to achieve stable operation when the air flow is supplied by a separate compressor and finally to run integrated gasifier/gas turbine tests for studies of the deposition problem in practical operation.

    Dip segmentation method2008In: 2008 13th International Conference on Harmonics and Quality of Power: [ICHQP 2008] ; Wollongong, Australia, 28 September - 1 October 2008, Piscataway, NJ: IEEE Communications Society, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An alternative approach for the analysis of various types of dip events, termed Dip Segmentation Method, is presented in this paper. The description of a voltage dip in the proposed method includes both pre-dip and postdip parts/segments of a dip-related event, while the during-dip part is divided into a number of "during-event segments" and "transition segments". In that way, the proposed method allows for an improved assessment of standard and commonly used dip characteristics, incorporating, at the same time, several usually neglected characteristics, aspects and features of dip events into the analysis. After identifying the corresponding dip segments, direct correlation between the individual segments and particular effects on equipment operation could be established, allowing a more detailed description of the dip events and more accurate assessment of their influence on equipment performance.

    Determination of the small amount of proteins interacting with TiO2 nanotubes by AFM-measurement2019In: Biomaterials, ISSN 0142-9612, E-ISSN 1878-5905, Vol. 192, p. 368-376Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Detecting the small amounts of proteins interacting effectively with the solid film electrodes surface still remains a challenge. To address this, in this work, a new approach was proposed by the combination of the adhesion forces and the molecular interaction measured with AFM. Cytochrome c (Cyt C) interacting effectively with TiO2 nanotube arrays (TNAs) was chosen as a probe. The amounts of Cyt C molecules interacting effectively on TNAs surface (CTNA) range from 5.5×10-12 to 7.0×10-12 mol/cm2 (68.2-86.8 ng/cm2) and they are comparable with the values obtained by the electrochemistry method in the literature, in evidence of the accuracy of this AFM-based approach. The reliability of the proposed approach was further verified by conducting Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) measurements and estimating the enhancement factor (EF). This interaction-based AFM approach can be used to accurately obtain the small amounts of adsorbed substances on the solid film electrodes surface in the applications such as biosensors, biocatalysis, and drug delivery, etc.

    AFM Study of pH-Dependent Adhesion of Single Protein to TiO2 Surface2019In: Advanced Materials Interfaces, ISSN 2196-7350, Vol. 6, no 14, article id 1900411Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The effect of pH-induced electrostatic conditions on the molecular interaction force of a single lysozyme molecule with TiO2 is investigated using atomic force microscopy (AFM). The force between the charged or neutral lysozyme molecule and the TiO2 surface is measured at different pH from 3.6 to 10.8. It is found to be directly proportional to the contact area, given by an effective diameter of the lysozyme molecule, and is further qualitatively verified by the AFM-measured friction coefficients. The results of the Derjaguin–Landau–Verwey–Overbeek theory show that the pH can change the surface charge densities of both lysozyme and TiO2, but the molecular interaction force at different pH is only dependent on the pH-induced effective diameter of lysozyme. The molecular interaction forces, quantified at the nanoscale, can be directly used to design high-performance liquid chromatography measurements at macroscale by tuning the retention time of a protein under varied pH conditions. They can also be applied to develop a model for predicting and controlling the chromatographic separations of proteins.

    A new control strategy of a VSC-HVDC System for high-quality supply of industrial plants2007In: IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery, ISSN 0885-8977, E-ISSN 1937-4208, Vol. 22, no 4, p. 2386-2394Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes a control strategy for a VSC-HVDC for improving the quality of power supply to industrial plants. The new idea of this control strategy is to give high priority to keep up the ac voltage and slightly decrease the frequency during disturbances. The motivation for choosing this strategy is that the sensitive processing industries are much more sensitive to voltage drops as compared with frequency deviations. In order to test this control strategy, the dynamic performance of a VSC-HVDC supplied industrial plant is investigated during sudden load disturbances, balanced and unbalanced faults from the grid. Simulation results obtained using PSCAD/EMTDC show that with the use of the proposed control strategy, the system can ride through disturbances such as motor starting and faults by slightly decreasing the frequency. The current limit of the VSC-HVDC converters has a significant influence on the dynamics of the system. An increase of the current limit significantly improves the power quality of the system. The comparison of the behavior between a pure ac supplied industrial plant and a VSC-HVDC supplied industrial plant clearly shows the capability of the VSC-HVDC to mitigate voltage dips during faults.

    Analysis of response of VSC-based HVDC to unbalanced faults with different control systems2005In: Security and sustainable development under deregulation: 2005 IEEE/PES Transmission and Distribution Conference & Exhibition: Asia and Pacific : [August 14 - 18, 2005, Dalian, China] ; paper abstracts, Piscataway, NJ: IEEE Communications Society, 2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the dynamic performance of a VSC-HVDC system under unbalanced faults in ac systems. Three different control systems are presented and analyzed for the most common unbalanced fault, i.e. single-line-to-ground fault (SLGF) in PSCAD/EMTDC. Simulation results show that the system resumes normal operation after fault clearing using all three control systems, among which the third control system produces the best transient performance

    Fate of metals and emissions of organic pollutants from torrefaction of waste wood, MSW, and RDF2017In: Waste Management, ISSN 0956-053X, E-ISSN 1879-2456, Vol. 68, p. 646-652Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Torrefaction of municipal solid waste (MSW), refuse-derived fuel (RDF), and demolition and construction wood (DC) was performed at 220 °C and a residence time of 90 min in a bench-scale reactor. The levels of toxic polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD) and dibenzofurans (PCDF) contained in emission from the torrefaction process were evaluated. In addition, main ash-forming elements and trace metals in the raw feedstock and char were determined. The use of MSW in fuel blends with DC resulted in lower PCDD and PCDF emissions after torrefaction, compared with the RDF blends. The migration of chlorine from the feedstock to the gas phase reduces the chlorine content of the char which may reduce the risk of alkali chloride-corrosion in char combustion. However, trace metals catalytically active in the formation of PCDD and PCDF remain in the char, thereby may promote PCDD and PCDF formation during subsequent char combustion for energy recovery; this formation is less extensive than when the feedstock is used.

    Reliability of a small power system using solar power and hydro2005In: Electric power systems research, ISSN 0378-7796, E-ISSN 1873-2046, Vol. 74, no 1, p. 119-127Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies the availability of the electricity supply when the sources consist of a combination of solar energy and a small hydro installation. Instead of flow-of-river, a small reservoir is used. By not using the hydro energy during sunny periods, the natural flow-of-river fills up the reservoir for later use. A model for global solar radiation is proposed with an astronomical part (deterministic) and a meteorological part (stochastic). The meteorological part is based on a Markov model of the cloud coverage. The solar model does not require solar radiation measurements, just cloud observations. A case study has been performed for Timbuktu (16.75°N, 0.07°W) in which generation availability is simulated for four different cases: solar power only; solar power with storage; solar and hydro power and solar and hydro power with storage. To be able to use exclusively renewable energy sources, a combination of sources is needed to secure the reliability of the supply. Using solar cells in combination with a small reservoir is favorable. Even with a weak flow the affect of the flow on the day time reliability is minor, but great benefits can be found for reliability during low load hours (night time).

    Methanol production from steel-work off-gases and biomass based synthesis gas2012In: International Conference on Applied Energy, ICAE 2012: Jul 5-8, 2012, Suzhou, China, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective has been to describe different cases of the methanol production from steel-work off gases (Coke oven gas and Basic oxygen furnace gas) and biomass based synthesis gas. The SSAB steel mill in the town of Luleå, Sweden has been used as a basis to analyze four different methanol production cases.The studied biomass gasification technology is based on a fluidized bed gasifier unit, where the production capacity is determined from case to case coupled to the heat production required to satisfy the local district heating demand. Critical factors are the integration of the gases with availability to the synthesis unit, to balance the steam system of the biorefinery and to meet the district heat demand of Luleå.For each case, the annual production potential of methanol, the overall production efficiencies and the effects on the total steel plant have been estimated.

    Cosmic dust and heavy neutrinos2007Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This Doctoral thesis treats two subjects. The first subject is the impact of early dust on the cosmic microwave background (CMB). The dust that is studied comes from the first generation of stars, which were hot and short-lived, ending their lives as giant supernovae. In the supernova explosions, heavy elements, produced through the fusion in the stars, were ejected into the interstellar medium. These heavy elements condensed to form dust, which can absorb and thus perturb the CMB radiation. The dust contribution to this radiation is calculated and found negligible. However, since the dust is produced within structures (like galaxy clusters), it will have a spatial correlation that could be used to detect it. This correlation is calculated with relevant assumptions. The planned Planck satellite could eventually detect and thus confirm this correlation. The second subject is heavy neutrinos and their impact on the diffuse gamma ray background. Neutrinos heavier than M_Z /2 ~ 45 GeV are not excluded by particle physics data. Stable neutrinos heavier than this might contribute to the cosmic gamma ray background through annihilation in distant galaxies as well as to the dark matter content of the universe. The evolution of the heavy neutrino density in the universe is calculated as a function of its mass, M_N, and then the subsequent gamma ray spectrum from annihilation of distant N-Nbar (from 0 < z < 5). The evolution of the heavy neutrino density in the universe is calculated numerically. In order to obtain the enhancement due to structure formation in the universe, the distribution of N is approximated to be proportional to that of dark matter in the GalICS model. The calculated gamma ray spectrum is compared to the measured EGRET data. A conservative exclusion region for the heavy neutrino mass is 100 to 200 GeV, both from EGRET data and our re-evalutation of the Kamiokande data. The heavy neutrino contribution to dark matter is found to be at most 15%. Finally, heavy neutrinos are considered within the context of a preon model for composite leptons and quarks, where such particles are natural. The consequences of these are discussed, with emphasis on existing data from the particle accelerator LEP at CERN. A numerical method for optimizing variable cuts in particle physics is also included in the thesis.

    Dust from reionization2004In: Astronomy and Astrophysics, ISSN 0004-6361, E-ISSN 1432-0746, Vol. 425, p. 9-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The possibility that population III stars have reionized the Universe at redshifts greater than 6 has recently gained momentum with WMAP polarization results. Here we analyse the role of early dust produced by these stars and ejected into the intergalactic medium. We show that this dust, heated by the radiation from the same population III stars, produces a submillimetre excess. The electromagnetic spectrum of this excess could account for a significant fraction of the FIRAS (Far Infrared Absolute Spectrophotometer) cosmic far infrared background above 700 micron. This spectrum, a primary anisotropy (Delta T) spectrum times the nu2 dust emissivity law, peaking in the submillimetre domain around 750 micron, is generic and does not depend on other detailed dust properties. Arcminute-scale anisotropies, coming from inhomogeneities in this early dust, could be detected by future submillimetre experiments such as Planck HFI.

    Abstract [en]

    Context. The dust produced by the first generation of stars will be a foreground to cosmic microwave background.Aims. In order to evaluate the effect of this early dust, we calculate the power spectrum of the dust emission anisotropies and compare it with the sensitivity limit of the Planck satellite.Methods. The spatial distribution of the dust is estimated through the distribution of dark matter.Results. At small angular scales l ≥ 1000 the dust signal is found to be noticeable with the Planck detector for certain values of dust lifetime and production rates. The dust signal is also compared to sensitivities of other instruments. The early dust emission anisotropies are finally compared to those of local dustand they are found to be similar in magnitude at mm wavelengths.

    Exergy as a means for process integration in an integrated steel plant2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Luleå energy system consists of SSAB (an integrated steel plant) – LuleKraft (the heat and power plant) – Luleå Energi (the district heating network). The exergy flows in the whole system have been studied and some possibilities on how to reduce the exergy losses are discussed. The exergy thermal efficiency of SSAB, LuleKraft and Luleå Energi are 70 %, 40 % and 30 % respectively. The relatively low exergy thermal efficiencies is a natural consequence of converting high-value chemical energy into heating water. In the integrated steel plant, the exergy losses are caused by the cooling of the steel prior to transport. In the heat and power plant, exergy is destroyed mainly in the furnace. In the district heating, exergy is destroyed mainly by the customer. A preliminary conclusion is that a lot of exergy is destroyed and lost in order to produce hot water, which doesn’t really need so much exergy. By lowering the water temperature of the district heating, a larger portion of the exergy can be converted to high-value electricity. Mapping by combined Exergy/energy analysis is important to find ways to improve energy efficiency. It can also be important to initiate regional energy collaboration.

    Possibility to combine exergy with other process integration methods for a steelmaking case2010In: PRES 2010, 13th Conference on Process Integration, Modelling and Optimisation for Energy Saving and Pollution Reduction / [ed] Jirí J. Klemeš; Hon Loong Lam; Petar S. Varbanov, AIDIC Servizi S.r.l. , 2010, p. 1375-1380Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The energy system of Luleå consists of the steel plant, a local CHP using process gases from the plant and the district heating system. Process integration work to improve the efficiency of the system is presently carried out by mathematical programming using a MILP tool (reMIND). Further improvements would need an improved possibility of the tool to consider the thermodynamic quality of the energy flows. This project aims to include exergy parameters in the node equations and object functions. This has been carried out for a test case, including a part of the system. Programming principles and some results are described.

    Gyroscopic design of swirling flow diffusers1999In: Proceedings of ASME/JSME FEDSM'99: ASME/JSME Fluids Engineering Division Summer Meeting, American Society of Mechanical Engineers , 1999Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The flow in the draft tube of a hydro power plant is often swirling when the turbine is operating outside its best efficiency point. The swirl gives rise to gyroscopic effects when the flow is forced through the bend in the draft tube. The resulting complex flow field causes losses.The idea in this paper is to investigate the possibility of using a simple model to calculate a new geometry of the draft tube that avoids distortion of the vortex core. Simulations are carried out using the CFD code CFX. A Reynolds stress model, with wall functions, is used to model turbulence.A loss factor is calculated and it was found that the new design draft tube shows approximately the same loss as a non-modified draft tube. The explanation to the somewhat surprising result is that the flow through and after the bend is dominated by the centrifugal effects from streamline curvature. It is therefore concluded that the most important loss mechanism appears to be triggered by streamline curvature.

    Characterization of Scots pine stump-root biomass as feed-stock for gasification2012In: Bioresource Technology, ISSN 0960-8524, E-ISSN 1873-2976, Vol. 104, p. 729-736Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective was to explore the potential for gasifying Scots pine stump-root biomass (SRB). Washed thin roots, coarse roots, stump heartwood and stump sapwood were characterized (solid wood, milling and powder characteristics) before and during industrial processing. Non-slagging gasification of the SRB fuels and a reference stem wood was successful, and the gasification parameters (synthesis gas and bottom ash characteristics) were similar. However, the heartwood fuel had high levels of extractives (≈ 19%) compared to the other fuels (2 – 8%) and thereby ≈ 16% higher energy contents but caused disturbances during milling, storage, feeding and gasification. SRB fuels could be sorted automatically according to their extractives and moisture contents using near-infrared spectroscopy, and their amounts and quality in forests can be predicted using routinely collected stand data, biomass functions and drill core analyses. Thus, SRB gasification has great potential and the proposed characterizations exploit it.

    Combustion of solid waste from wood-based ethanol production2005Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The solid residue from wood-based ethanol production has a low ash content and high heating value, making it interesting for combustion applications, e.g. small-scale appliances and gas turbines. Combustion and gasification properties have been studied using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential thermal analysis (DTA). Char combustion rate data obtained could be used in combustion simulations. TGA and DTA data are useful for comparison with other fuels where data are available for similar heating rates. One possible use is direct-firing of gas turbines for Combined Heat and Power (CHP) at the site of the ethanol plant. Another possible use of the material is for the production of fuel pellets. A combustion test with a 150 kW powder burner has been done. Fuel feeding and combustion were stable. The average concentration of CO in the stack gas was 8 mg/MJ, the averag concentration of NOx was 59 mg/MJ and the average total hydrocarbon concentration was below 1 ppm, at an average O2 concentration of 4.6 per cent. Process parameters, investments, costs and revenues for these two production options have been estimated. The conclusion is that CHP is the most profitable use, although the uncertainties in estimated costs are considerable. Reductions of greenhouse gas emissions are decidedly larger for the CHP option. It has been concluded that CHP production is an option worth pursuing further. The technical feasibility of using the material for direct-firing of a gas turbine remains to be established however.
