Thermochemical energy storage systems: modelling, analysis and design
Thermal energy storage (TES) is an advanced technology for storing thermal energy that can mitigate environmental impacts and facilitate more efficient and clean energy systems. Thermochemical TES is an emerging method ...
Second law analysis of a liquid cooled battery thermal management system for hybrid and electric vehicles
As hybrid and electric vehicles continue to evolve there is a need for better battery thermal management systems (BTMS), which maintain uniformity of operating temperature of the batteries in the vehicles. This thesis ...
Design and Optimization of Intelligent PI Controllers (Fuzzy and Neuro-Fuzzy) for HVDC Transmission System
This thesis deals with enhancing the performance of Fuzzy Logic (FL) based PI controllers for High Voltage Direct Current Transmission Systems (HVDC) by optimizing the key parameters i.e. membership functions (MFs) and ...
Simulation of voltage source converter based shunt active filter in EMTP‐RV
The deterioration in power quality due to the increase in non linear loads has sparked a new interest in the filtering techniques used in transmission and distribution systems. Unlike passive filters, active filters are ...
Spectrum sharing for two-way relay networks
We consider a communication network consisting of two transceiver nodes, one relay node, and one receiving node. The relay enables a two-way communication between the two transceivers and meanwhile sends its own information ...
Development of an autonomous omnidirectional hazardous material handling robot
This thesis describes the prototyping and testing of an autonomous omnidirectional robot, called the OmniMaxbot. The OmniMaxbot is designed to carry cans of uranium ash at Cameco Corporation's Port Hope Conversion Facility ...
Achieving high efficiency thermoelectric heating and cooling with metal foam heat exchangers
This thesis examines the development of a high efficiency heat pump system using thermoelectric (TE) and reticulated metal foam (RMF) technologies to power a vehicle`s battery thermal management system. The focus is split ...
Design and development of a robotic crawler for CANDU fuel channel inspection
For the design of a new robotic crawler drive unit for CANDU fuel channel inspection, a complete design and screening process was done in order to fulfil the objective of this research. A brief explanation of CANDU reactors ...
Front underride protection devices: methods for design and testing
Improvements to highway safety are in continual demand. One of the most severe instances of vehicle collision occurs as a result of vehicle weight and sizing mismatch. The fitment of Front Underride Protection Devices ...
