Evaporative drying of cupric-chloride droplets in a thermo-chemical cycle of hydrogen production
This thesis develops analytical and numerical solutions that predict behavior of Cupric-Chloride droplets undergoing spraying and drying processes. Cupric-Chloride (CuCl2) is present as molten salt and slurry within the ...
Experimental and theoretical investigations of magnesium-chlorine cycle and its integrated systems
This study aims to investigate the feasibility of the Mg-Cl hybrid thermochemical cycle and to develop a more cost and energy effective cycle. There are five key elements of this study: (i) modeling and simulation of the ...
Kinetics and transport phenomena in the chemical decomposition of copper oxychloride in the thermochemical Cu-CI Cycle
The thermochemical copper-chlorine (Cu-Cl) cycle for hydrogen production includes three chemical reactions of hydrolysis, decomposition and electrolysis. The decomposition of copper oxychloride establishes the high-temperature ...
Investigation and assessment of the integrated copper chlorine cycle for hydrogen production with a new separation process
The production of hydrogen as a clean fuel is anticipated to have a major impact on the development of the environmentally benign generation of energy. At present, a significant portion of hydrogen generation is based on ...
A study of a novel design for efficient hydrolysis reactor for the Cu-Cl thermochemical hydrogen production cycle
In this thesis, methods to optimize the Hydrolysis reactor for the Cu-Cl thermochemical Hydrogen production cycle were investigated. A simplified Hydrolysis reactor using simple off-the-shelf components was tested and found ...
