Life cycle assessment of conventional and alternative fuels for vehicles
For the near future, it is important that vehicles are run by alternative fuels. Before we can go ahead with the new alternatives, it is crucial that a comprehensive life cycle analysis is carried out for fuels. In this ...
Thermal management of the thermochemical Cu-Cl cycle linked with industrial processes for hydrogen production
This thesis study develops, analyzes and evaluates three integrated systems using process heats available in industrial applications for hydrogen production via copper-chlorine (Cu-Cl) cycle. The first system consists of ...
Development and analysis of active rear axle steering for 8x8 combat vehicle
This thesis proposes and compares multiple vehicle dynamics controllers using rear axle steering of an 8x8 combat vehicle. The controllers are assessed on ability to increase maneuverability at low speed, increase stability ...
Experimental investigation and evaluation of hybrid ammonia fuel options for power generators
This research thesis aims to make use of ammonia as a possible fuel source for power generators by performing an experimental study on a gasoline generator with an ammonia based gasoline fuel blend. Then, the combustion ...
Investigation of copper deposition on steel in molten copper chloride
Hydrogen is considered as the most prominent candidate for clean energy generation. The Copper Chloride (Cu-Cl) cycle has been chosen as an effective cycle for production of hydrogen due to its comparatively lower operating ...
Development and investigation of alkaline electrolyte based direct ammonia fuel cells
In the present thesis study, alkaline electrolyte based direct ammonia fuel cells are developed, and their performances are evaluated through various parameters and efficiencies, such as open circuit voltages, polarization ...
Development and experimental analysis of a novel hybrid cooling concept for electric vehicle batteries
In this thesis, a novel hybrid cooling concept for electric batteries is developed and studied at both the cell-level and pack-level experiments. The concept is based on a simple air-cooling duct that utilizes enhanced ...
Active balancing of lithium-ion cells for maximum power discharging
The future of Electric Vehicle’s (EV) depends on the adoption of the technology. Currently the limiting factor for EV adoption is mainly the initial cost, the driving range, charging capability, and the battery life. The ...
Development of an integrated inspection system for additive and subtractive hybrid manufacturing
Using closed-loop inspection systems to modify coordinate metrology tasks for specific engineering applications has been a demanding research subject over the last decade. The objective of this thesis is to develop an ...
