  • Technical and economic analysis of gas-engine driven heat pump in China

    In this paper, the primary energy ratio and economic benefit of five different heating systems are analysed. The results show that the gas-engine heat pump system has the advantages of high primary energy efficiency and favours environmental protection in contrast to the other four heating systems. At the same time, to improve the economic benefit of the energy saving and environmental protection ...

  • Thermodynamic analysis of a hybrid gas turbine/thermoacoustic heat pump/refrigeration engine

    Possible performance enhancement of small gas turbine power plants through the application of thermoacoustic systems is examined. The thermoacoustic subsystem is powered only by the waste heat of the gas turbine. Two different gas turbine configurations are considered: a Thermoacoustic refrigerator assisted gas turbine (TRG) and a Combined thermoacoustic heat pump and refrigeration assisted gas ...

  • Study of available exhaust gas heat recovery technologies for HD diesel engine applications

    Diesel engines reject a considerable amount of energy to the ambience through the exhaust gas. Significant reduction of engine brake-specific fuel consumption (bsfc) could be attained by recovering a significant part of exhaust gas heat. Various techniques have been proposed in the past to recover exhaust energy: mechanical, electrical turbocompounding and Rankine Bottoming Cycles. In the present ...

  • Natural Gas Compressor

    Reciprocating engines come in all sizes, from a tiny, 10cc piston engine that powers a model airplane, to the massive Wartsila RTA 96-C, with each of its 14 cylinders displacing 1,820,000 cc. While our borescopes won’t be much help on the model airplane engine, if you work on any medium or large size reciprocating engine, the chances are good that we have a video borescope that can make ...

  • New Approach allows Subscribers to Reach the Summit of the Mountain of Information on Gas Turbine and Reciprocating Engine Technology

    The available information on combustion, flow control, treatment and environmental compliance for gas turbines and reciprocating engines is doubling every few years. It is now more challenging than climbing Mt. Everest to find the most current and relevant information. Rapid developments include zero liquid discharge (ZLD) technologies, repairable valves, high efficiency air inlet filters, ...

  • Engine detonation with bioethanol cavitation

    Bioethanol is an alcohol of an organic origin which receives from a sugar ferment reaction. In the process of ethanol formation, starch from grains of plants turns in simple sugar in reaction with enzymes. Natural sugar ferments with yeast and form a mix of alcohol, water and unfermented remains. Alcohol is separated from a mix in distillation capacities and additionally clears in rectifying ...

  • An engineer–oriented optimisation of Stirling engine cycle with finite–size finite–speed of revolution thermodynamics

    Finite–time thermodynamics takes into account exo–irreversibilities which are not managed by reversible thermodynamics, especially reservoir–to–gas temperature gaps. In today's works, thermodynamicists use the working gas mass as the main imposed parameter. In this paper, the study of the Stirling engine cycle is carried out with a motorist–oriented viewpoint: instead of the working gas mass, the ...
