  • Gas & Diesel Engine Applications - Case study

    Introduction There are many types of stationary and mobile internal combustion engines that can run off gas or diesel fuels. Engines can be lean burning at a high air to fuel ratio (AFR) or rich burning at a low AFR. The exhaust stack gases from engines contain pollutant gases including CO, NO, NO2, NOx, and CxHy hydrocarbons ...

  • No Place Is Too Far

    The remote location of hydropower stations is often a great challenge when major repair work is necessary. The refurbishment of a large generator in the Scottish Highlands shows how Sulzer finds cost-effective service solutions even in places miles from nowhere. Much of the UK hydroelectric capacity was built during the 1950s. These installations have performed extremely well, especially ...

  • Greenstars portable monitoring for CHP and flares case study

    Greenstar's award-winning KTK landfill site in Kilcullen, Co. Kildare, is unusual in Ireland in that it has three gas engines feeding electricity to the grid and two flares. In Ireland, while flaring is common, engines are not. The flares are run in tandem with engines so that if an engine is ramped down for repair or service, the flare ramps up automatically. All are supplied by 122 landfill gas ...

  • JCB: Advanced diesel engine development - Case Study

    JCB Power Systems is a global leader in construction and agricultural machinery and the largest company in the UK, where they are headquartered. In 2009, JCB implemented plans to build a world class advanced research and development center, near Derby in the UK, for low emissions diesel engines up to 300kW, with fast transient measurement capability plus the latest cycle emissions ...

  • Energy efficiency: la Compagnie des Fromages counts on innovation with Emerson technologies

    The subsidiary of the Bongrain Group is pursuing a policy to reduce its energy usage and CO2 emissions by investing in a facility designed by Cofely Axima, a leader in industrial refrigeration and a subsidiary of GDF Suez. This solution stands out for its use of a process that heats and cools within a single cycle and its use of key components supplied by the Emerson Group – a Vilter ...

  • Modeling Analysis of Fuel Sprays

    Current engine development processes in which computations play an important role have sought for numerical models which can accurately represent phenomena in spray combustion. The authors have developed original sub-models taking into account the effects of extensive spray combustion phenomena including nozzle cavitation, droplet breakup behavior, multi-component evaporation process, spray-wall ...

  • Market power monitoring under open access system

    In this paper, an engineering procedure is proposed for complete market power monitoring under open access system. Market power monitoring of any given system or network is done by using market power assessment and market power indices. For any given network, market power assessment is to identify which generation company (GENCO) raised their prices when the demand in the concerned area is ...

  • Capacitor application issues

    Abstract - Capacitors provide well-known benefits to electric power systems. These benefits include power factor correction, voltage support, release of system capacity, and reduced system losses. As with any piece of electrical equipment, there are a number of application issues that engineers need to be aware of. These issues range from the very basic to the very complex. Most of these ...

  • Performance analysis of a single cylinder DI diesel engine using different biodiesel

    Biodiesel produced from cottonseed oil is quite a promising alternative fuel for diesel engines. Use of vegetable oils in diesel engines leads to slightly inferior performance and higher smoke emissions due to their high viscosity and carbon residue. But the performance of vegetable oils can be improved by modifying them through the transesterification process. The research work discusses the ...

  • Fault diagnosis of a diesel engine by using the analysis of instantaneous angular speed with a flexible model

    Engine shaft instantaneous angular speed (IAS) can be used to diagnose combustion related faults and other faults affecting the output of engines, especially for small-scale diesel generators. Unfortunately, it is difficult to apply this technology to monitoring the operational condition of a marine propulsion diesel engine due to its complex shafting systems and multiple factors affecting the ...

  • Teaching engineering ethics: a necessary measure for engineering capacity building in Arab countries

    Interest in engineering ethics education has developed significant momentum in most of advanced countries unlike Arab countries, which have not yet paid enough attention to such critical issue. As engineering work becomes more complex and diverse an understanding of engineering ethics becomes as important to the proper education of engineers as their technical knowledge. This means that ...
