Parametric Study On A Novel Waste Heat Recovery System, Ghaleb Rustom Abdul Sater Dec 2012

Parametric Study On A Novel Waste Heat Recovery System, Ghaleb Rustom Abdul Sater

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The present thesis is based on an industry-sponsor project involving a novel waste heat-to-electricity conversion system. This proprietary system utilizes thermal energy from a low temperature heat sources to produce torque that drives an electric generator to produce electricity. The system needs to be studied through scientific research to help with optimizing the product development, component design, and overall system performance. The main objectives of this study are to develop simulation tools (numerical model) that will allow to simulate the thermo-fluid processes in various system components and to use this numerical model to study the heat transfer and phase-change processes ...
