Design and evaluation of solar and geothermal energy systems integrated with Cu-Cl cycle
This thesis study proposes solar and geothermal based three multigeneration systems. System 1 consists of a bifacial photovoltaic (BiPV) plant, multi-effect distillation (MED) desalination unit and, proton exchange membrane ...
Effect of copper contamination at the cathode in Cu-Cl electrolyzers for hydrogen production
In this work the effects of copper contamination on the coulombic and voltage efficiency of the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) via the Cu-Cl thermochemical cycle are investigated. A novel proton pump configuration was ...
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 ...
Development and assessment of integrated energy systems with ammonia synthesis and fuel cells
Hydrogen and ammonia comprise two important clean fuels, which are expected to play a vital role in the development of clean energy production and utilization. Currently, their production relies heavily on fossil fuel-based ...
Design and evaluation of integrated waste to energy multigenerational systems
This thesis study develops three renewable energy-based waste-to-energy multigeneration systems and examine them thermodynamically and economically. The first system uses solar-based energy and animal manure waste, and the ...
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 ...
