  • Planning and construction of the Munich north combined heat and power plant

    The Munich North combined heat and power plant, construction of which commmenced in the autumn of 1988, was a project that set new standards in terms not only of plant diversity and output rating but also of technological design. The present paper attempts to give a general outline of the plant design concept, which combines the aim of maximizing plant operating capabilities with a commitment to ...

  • Who uses innovative energy technologies, when and why? The case of fuel cell MicroCHP in households

    Users can play an important role in the diffusion of sustainable energy technologies. Using a postal survey and focus group discussions, the paper explores the characteristics, motives and expectations of household users in the case of fuel cell?driven small combined heat and power plants. (Potential) users are highly educated and well off, almost exclusively male and relatively old. Their main ...

  • Michelangelo Network recommendations on nuclear hydrogen production

    The Michelangelo Network (MICANET) was started within the 5th EURATOM Framework Programme (FP5) with the objective to elaborate a general European R&D strategy for the further development of the nuclear industry in the short, medium, and long term. To broaden the application range of nuclear power beyond dedicated electricity generation, the network proposed an orientation for future EURATOM ...

  • Power and efficiency analysis of an endoreversible closed intercooled regenerated Brayton cycle

    In this paper, finite-time thermodynamics (FTT) is applied to analyse the performance of an endoreversible closed intercooled regenerated Brayton cycle coupled with variable-temperature heat reservoirs. The analytical formulae of dimensionless power and efficiency are thus derived. The intercooling pressure ratio is optimised for maximum power and maximum efficiency, respectively. The effects of ...
