Multi-state system in a fault tree analsis of a nuclear based thermochemical hydrogen plant
Nuclear-based hydrogen generation is a promising way to supply hydrogen for this large market in the future. This thesis focuses on one of the most promising methods, a thermochemical Cu-Cl cycle, which is currently under ...
Transient heat transfer analysis of heat exchangers in a Marnoch Heat Engine
The Marnoch heat engine (MHE) is a new type of power generation device that is under research and development at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. In this thesis, the transient heat transfer behaviour of ...
Design of 3-DOF parallel manipulators for micro-motion applications
This thesis presents two unique micro-motion parallel kinematic manipulators (PKM): a three degrees of freedom (3-DOF) micro-motion manipulator and a 3-DOF micro-motion manipulator with actuation redundancy. The 3-DOF ...
Joint uplink-downlink beamforming in multi-antenna relaying schemes
The thesis examines the problem of joint receive and transmit beamforming for a wireless network which consists of one relay node equipped with multiple antennas. The transmitter and the receiver are single antenna ...
