    Experimental study on thermal performance of transcritical CO 2 air source heat pump for space heating2019Inngår i: Energy Procedia, Elsevier Ltd , 2019, Vol. 158, s. 5913-5919Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Employing transcritical CO 2 heat pump system for space heating is an effective way to solve the issue of air pollution during the heating season in China. Thus, an experimental setup is developed to study the thermal performance of the transcritical CO 2 air source heat pump system used for space heating. The test results show that a maximum coefficient of performance (COP) of 2.88 is obtained at the optimum discharge pressure and the ambient temperature of 10 o C. The optimal high pressure is nearly a constant with the value of about 8.5 MPa for the ambient temperature in the range of -15~10 o C. The system COP increases with the ambient temperature increasing, and the outlet temperature of the gas cooler is a dominant influencing factor on the thermal performance of the heat pump system. Little difference can be found between the gas cooler outlet temperatures with the variation in ambient temperatures.

    Accurately measurement and efficiently recovery of ionic liquid in energy utilization of microalgae2019Inngår i: Energy Procedia, Elsevier Ltd , 2019, Vol. 158, s. 1337-1341Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Chlorella vulgais, a kind of micro-alagae, is an attracting feedstock for bioenergy production, such as biodiesel and biogas. But its tough cell wall structure is the main obstacle to efficiently extracting lipids and other biomass. Ionic liquid (IL) can be used to hydrolyze its cell-wall. However, due to its high cost and toxicity, it is important to recover IL as much as possible. Therefore, a method that can accurately measure the content of ILs, is urgently needed. In this work, two common methods that are used to measure the content of ILs: equimolar titration method and ultraviolet absorbance spectra were compared. The results show that equimolar titration method is not available for trace quantity analysis of ionic liquids as the endpoint of titration is hard to be identified at low IL content (<10 mg/L); while UV absorbance spectra method can be used at low IL contents, whereas, it may result in big deviations. To further improve the accuracy of UV absorbance spectra method, concentrating the sample could be a potential solution.

    Lipids extraction from wet Chlorella pyrenoidosa sludge using recycled [BMIM]Cl2019Inngår i: Bioresource Technology, ISSN 0960-8524, E-ISSN 1873-2976, Vol. 291, artikkel-id 121819Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, experiments on pretreating one species of microalgae (Chlorella pyrenoidosa) using one kind of ionic liquid (IL) of [BMIM]Cl were conducted. The aim of this work is to evaluate the recycling efficacy of expensive IL solvent for effective cell disruption. It was indicated that the molecular structure of IL was stable during the recycling test. Five times antisolvent precipitation of microalgae debris after lipid extraction using methanol recovered 99.8% IL with the energy consumption of 4.46 MJ per kg dry Chlorella pyrenoidosa. The chromatography was used to separate IL and hydrolysates, resulting in the IL loss below 1.97 g per kg dry Chlorella pyrenoidosa. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd

    Power Generation Efficiency and Prospects of Floating Photovoltaic Systems2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 105, s. 1136-1142Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    At present, China's economic and social development is restricted by many factors, such as environmental pollution and the supply of energy, land resources and water resources. Compared with traditional terrestrial photovoltaic (PV) systems, floating PV systems can save a lot of land and water resources and obtain higher power generation efficiency. Although the academics have reached a general consensus about the advantages of floating systems, very few in-depth studies focus on the specifications of floating PV systems. Therefore, this study first discusses the development of PV technology, then studies the power generation efficiency of floating PV systems, and finally comprehensively analyzes the advantages and potential of floating PV systems in China.

    Statistical analysis of energy consumption patterns on the heat demand of buildings in district heating systems2014Inngår i: Energy and Buildings, ISSN 0378-7788, E-ISSN 1872-6178, Vol. 85, s. 664-672Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Precise prediction of heat demand is crucial for optimising district heating (DH) systems. Energy consumption patterns (ECPs) represent a key parameter in developing a good mathematical model to predict heat demand. This study quantitatively investigated the impacts of ECPs on heat consumption. Two key factors, namely, time and type of buildings, were used to reflect various ECPs in DH systems, and a Gaussian mixture model (GMM) was developed to examine their impacts on heat consumption. The model was trained and validated using the measured data from a real DH system. Results show that the factor of time does not represent a good reflection of ECP. In contrast, categorising buildings according to their function is an effective way to reflect ECPs. Based on the defined building types, i.e., commercial, apartment and office, the average absolute deviation of the predicted heat load was about 4-8%.

    The role of data analysis in the development of intelligent energy networks2017Inngår i: IEEE Network, ISSN 0890-8044, E-ISSN 1558-156X, Vol. 31, nr 5, s. 88-95, artikkel-id 8053484Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Data analysis plays an important role in the development of intelligent energy networks (IENs). This article reviews and discusses the application of data analysis methods for energy big data. The installation of smart energy meters has provided a huge volume of data at different time resolutions, suggesting data analysis is required for clustering, demand forecasting, energy generation optimization, energy pricing, monitoring and diagnostics. The currently adopted data analysis technologies for IENs include pattern recognition, machine learning, data mining, statistics methods, and so on. However, existing methods for data analysis cannot fully meet the requirements for processing the big data produced by IENs, therefore more comprehensive data analysis methods are needed to handle the increasing amount of data and to mine more valuable information.

    BIO-METHANE PRODUCTION THROUGH DIFFERENT BIOMASS GASIFIERS2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Considering sustainability of energy resources and environmental concerns have led to activities all over the world seeking alternatives for current methods of fuel production. Gasification of biomass to supply bio-methane is one of those options. Bio-methane is carbon neutral and meets the needs of combustion engines in vehicles.Focusing on vehicle fuel production reveals the need for wide research to understand different types of gasifiers in order to find the possibilities for more methane production.In this paper data collected from different experimental setups are summarized and analyzed.Fluidized bed gasifiers show higher methane concentrations in the produced gas while entrained flow and downdraft gasifiers may be the least suitable types for high methane yields.Heating value of the product gas and cold gas efficiency are also studied as the important parameters for evaluating the characteristics of the product gas. This analysis shows that by increasing the equivalence ratio, the heating value of the product gas decreases while the efficiency may not follow the same trend.

    EVALUATION OF DIFFERENT BIOMASS GASIFICATION MODELING APPROACHES FOR FLUIDIZED BED GASIFIERS2016Inngår i: Biomass and Bioenergy, ISSN 0961-9534, E-ISSN 1873-2909, Vol. 91, s. 69-82Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    To develop a model for biomass gasification in fluidized bed gasifiers with high accuracy and generality that could be used under various operating conditions, the equilibrium model (EM) is chosen as a general and case-independent modeling method. However, EM lacks sufficient accuracy in predicting the content (volume fraction) of four major components (H2, CO, CO2 and CH4) in product gas. In this paper, three approaches—MODEL I, which restricts equilibrium to a specific temperature (QET method); MODEL II, which uses empirical correlations for carbon, CH4, C2H2, C2H4, C2H6 and NH3 conversion; and MODEL III, which includes kinetic and hydrodynamic equations—have been studied and compared to map the barriers and complexities involved in developing an accurate and generic model for the gasification of biomass.

    This study indicates that existing empirical correlations can be further improved by considering more experimental data. The updated model features better accuracy in the prediction of product gas composition in a larger range of operating conditions. Additionally, combining the QET method with a kinetic and hydrodynamic approach results in a model that features less overall error than the original model based on a kinetic and hydrodynamic approach.

    The influence of different parameters on biomass gasification in circulating fluidized bed gasifiers2016Inngår i: Energy Conversion and Management, ISSN 0196-8904, E-ISSN 1879-2227, Vol. 126, s. 110-123Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The mechanism of biomass gasification has been studied for decades. However, for circulating fluidized bed (CFB) gasifiers, the impacts of different parameters on the gas quality and gasifiers performance have still not been fully investigated. In this paper, different CFB gasifiers have been analyzed by multivariate analysis statistical tools to identify the hidden interrelation between operating parameters and product gas quality, the most influencing input parameters and the optimum points for operation. The results show that equivalence ratio (ER), bed material, temperature, particle size and carbon content of the biomass are the input parameters influencing the output of the gasifier the most. Investigating among the input parameters with opposite impact on product gas quality, cases with optimal gas quality can result in high tar yield and low carbon conversion while low tar yield and high carbon conversion can result in product gas with low quality. However using Olivine as the bed material and setting ER value around 0.3, steam to biomass ratio to 0.7 and using biomass with 3 mm particle size and 9 wt% moisture content can result in optimal product gas with low tar yield.

    Optimal location and capacity planning for distributed generation with independent power production and self-generation2017Inngår i: Applied Energy, ISSN 0306-2619, E-ISSN 1872-9118, Vol. 188, s. 140-150Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes a planning model for power distribution companies (DISCOs) to maximize profit. The model determines optimal network location and capacity for renewable energy source, which are categorized as independent power production (IPP) and self-generation (SG). IPP refers to generators owned by third-party investors and linked to a quota obligation mechanism. SG encompasses smaller generators, supported by feed-in tariffs, that produce energy for local consumption, exporting any surplus generation to the distribution network. The obtained optimal planning model is able to evaluate network capacity to maximize profit when the DISCO is obliged to provide network access to SG and IPP. Distinct parts of the objective function, owing to the definition of SG, are revenue erosion, recovery as well as the cost of excess energy. Together with the quota mechanism for IPP, the combination of all profit components creates a connection trade-off between IPP and SG for networks with limited capacity. The effectiveness of the model is tested on 33- and 69-bus test distribution systems and compared to standard models that maximize generation capacity with predefined capacity diffusion. Simulation results demonstrate the model outperforms the standard models in satisfying the following binding constraints: minimum IPP capacity and SG net energy. It is further revealed that integrating SG and IPP with the proposed model increases profit by up to 23.7%, adding an improvement of 8% over a feasible standard model.

    A feasibility study on integrating large-scale battery energy storage systems with combined cycle power generation – Setting the bottom line2019Inngår i: Energy, ISSN 0360-5442, E-ISSN 1873-6785, Vol. 185, s. 396-408Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Strong attention has been given to the costs and benefits of integrating battery energy storage systems (BESS) with intermittent renewable energy systems. What's neglected is the feasibility of integrating BESS into the existing fossil-dominated power generation system to achieve economic and environmental objectives. In response, a life cycle cost-benefit analysis method is introduced in this study taking into consideration three types of battery technologies, namely, vanadium redox flow battery, zinc bromine flow battery, and lithium-iron-phosphate battery. The objective is to evaluate the life cycle carbon emissions and cost of electricity production by combined cycle power generation with grid-connected BESS. Findings from the Singapore case study suggest a potential 3–5% reduction in the life cycle carbon emission factors which could translate to a cumulative carbon emission reduction of 9–16 million tonnes from 2018 to 2030 from electricity generation. Grid-connected BESS could reduce the levelized cost of electricity by 4–7%. A synergistic planning of CCGT and BESS could theoretically reduce the system level power generation capacity by 26% albeit a potential increase in the overall capital cost at the current cost of batteries. The projected battery cost reduction is critical in improving the feasibility of large-scale deployment.

    A Comparative Cost Assessment of Energy Production from Central Heating Plant or Combined Heat and Power Plant2016Inngår i: Energy Procedia, 2016, s. 556-561Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) is a common approach in evaluating the economic competitiveness of a power generation technology. The same approach can be applied for evaluating the levelized cost of heat (LCOH) production. There are a number of approaches in calculating the LCOE and or LCOH from a combined heat and power (CHP) plant. In this study, we explore three alternative methods in calculating the LCOE and LCOH of a CHP and compare the results with that those of a heating only plant. The results can be used as indicators for identifying a suitable pricing mechanisms for the heating market.

    Impacts of thermo-physical properties of gas and liquid phases on design of absorber for CO2 capture using monoethanolamine2016Inngår i: International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control, ISSN 1750-5836, E-ISSN 1878-0148, Vol. 52, s. 190-200Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Absorption of CO2 with aqueous amines in post-combustion capture is characterized as a heat and mass transfer processes with chemical reaction, which is sensitively affected by the thermo-physical properties of fluids. In order to optimize the design of the absorber of CO2 capture process, in this paper, the impacts of thermo-physical properties on the column design were investigated. Furthermore, the property impacts on the capital cost of the absorber unit were also identified and analyzed. Results show that the gas phase density has the most significant effect on the column diameter. Underestimation of the gas phase density of 10% may result in an increase of about 6% of the column diameter. For the packing height, the liquid phase density has the most significant effect. 10% underestimation of the liquid phase density may result in an increase of 8% of the packing height. Moreover, the effect from the liquid phase viscosity is also significant. For the annual capital cost, the liquid phase density also shows the most significant effect. Underestimation of the liquid phase density of 10% leads to the cost overestimation of $1.4 million for the absorption column for a 400 MW coal-fired power plant. Therefore, the development of the flue gas density model and liquid phase density and viscosity models of the aqueous amine solution with CO2 loading should be prioritized.

    Sensitivity study of thermo-physical properties of gas phase on absorber design for CO2 capture using monoethanolamine2015Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 75, s. 2305-2310Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Absorption of CO2 with aqueous amines in post-combustion capture is characterized as mass transfer process with chemical reaction. Hydrodynamics and mass transfer in gas and liquid phases in a packed column have significant influences on absorber design especially for the design of packing height. In this paper, the sensitivity study has been conducted to investigate the impacts of gas phase density, viscosity and diffusivity on the hydrodynamics and mass transfer and further the total packing height of a countercurrent flow with random packing column, using reactive absorption process and integral rate-based models. Results show that density and diffusivity have opposite effect to viscosity. Amongst various properties, diffusivity has the most significant effect on the packing height compared to density and viscosity. Overestimation of diffusivity of 5% may result in decrease of 3.2% of packing height. Moreover, developing more accurate diffusivity model should be prioritized for more accurate absorber design.

    Viscosity data of aqueous MDEA–[Bmim][BF4] solutions within carbon capture operating conditions2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 105, s. 4581-4586Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Post–combustion capture with chemical absorption shows higher potential for commercial scale application compared with other technologies. To capture CO2 from the industrial and power plant’s flue gases, aqueous alkanolamine solutions are widely used. However, several drawbacks from utilizing the aqueous alkanolamines such as MEA still need to be solved. For example, alkanolamine solutions require intensive energy for regeneration and cause severe corrosion to the equipment though they have high reactivity in capturing CO2. Ionic liquids have been of interest in the recent development of chemical absorption according to their unique characteristics including wide liquid range, negligible volatility and thermal stability. However, due to their high price, high viscosity and low absorption capacity compared to alkanolamines, ionic liquids are still non–desirable for industrial applications.

    One possible solution to improve the performance of ionic liquids is to use mixtures of ionic liquids and alkanolamines. For a better understanding of the absorption using the mixture of aqueous alkanolamines and ionic liquids, the knowledge of thermo–physical properties of the solutions, especially the viscosity and density are of importance. This paper reports the measured viscosity of MDEA–[Bmim][BF4] aqueous mixtures at various temperatures and concentrations. It was found that the viscosity increase with an increase in [Bmim][BF4] concentration, but decrease with an increase in temperature. Moreover, the impact of temperature on the viscosity is more significant at low temperature range.

    Comparison of Mass Transfer Models on Rate-Based Simulations of CO2 Absorption and Desorption Processes2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 142, s. 3747-3752Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the keys available options for the large scale carbon capture and storage is the solvent-based post-combustion capture. Due to the high reactivity between CO2 and aqueous amine solutions, chemical absorption is suitable for capturing the CO2 at low concentration such as from the flue gas. From techno-economic analyses of the CO2 chemical absorption plant, absorber and desorber columns are the main cost of the purchased equipment. Since the process involves complex reactive separations, the accurate calculation of hydrodynamic properties, mass and energy transfer are of importance for the design of the columns. Several studies have been done on the impact of different process and property models on the equilibrium and rate-based simulation of the absorption site. However, the impact study of process and property models on the desorption site are still lacking. This paper performs rate-based simulations of CO2 absorption by Monoethanolamine. The software Aspen Plus was used for the simulations. Different mass transfer models were implemented for the mass transfer calculation in gas and liquid phases. The temperature and concentration profiles along the columns are reported and discussed.

    Study on the Implementation Pathways and Key Impacts of RPS Target in China using a Dynamic Game-Theoretical Equilibrium Power Market Model2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 105, s. 3844-3849Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    China's 2020 Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) target has been published by the government in early 2016. In the present study, in order to find its implementation pathways and estimate the key impacts of PRS target out to 2030, a multi-region power market model is proposed to investigate different RPS policy scenarios. Results show that RPS policy can promote the development of renewable energy efficiently, and Renewable Energy Certification (REC) trade can reduce the cost of electricity generated from renewable energy. However, a national wide free REC trade tends to result in a dilemma that renewable energy will be developed centralizedly in regions where the renewable resource is plenty. Therefore, detailed REC trade regulations need to be developed from more comprehensive viewpoints when adopting RPS policy.

    Substitution effect of renewable portfolio standards and renewable energy certificate trading for feed-in tariff2018Inngår i: Applied Energy, ISSN 0306-2619, E-ISSN 1872-9118, Vol. 227, s. 426-435Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The Feed-in Tariff (FIT) has been successfully used to promote the development of renewable energy; nevertheless, it may cause financial burden on the governments at the same time. Compared with FIT, Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) and the Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) trading have been considered to reduce the government's expenditure caused by the subsidization. To examine the effectiveness of RPS and REC trading, the development of renewable energy and the environmental and economic benefits under different policies have been quantitatively investigated by using a multi-region power market model and China has been chosen as a case study. The obtained results show that: (i) REC trading can efficiently reduce the government's expenditure on subsidies for the development of renewable energy; (ii) Compared to FIT, RPS and REC trading will reduce the power sectors' profit; and (iii) RPS and REC trading may not be enough to achieve the target on renewable energy especially when the capital cost is high, therefore, RPS, REC trade and FIT subsidy should be implemented as complementary policies, not independent.

    Potential of energy saving in a data center – application of an agent-based modelling2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 105, s. 3903-3908Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Conventional approaches for modelling energy consumption for data center are limited to deal with the randomness, emergence and interdependence in energy systems. To fill the gap, an agent-based method was proposed and implemented to simulate the electricity consumption of a data center and to explore the potential of energy saving. The study found that a large amount of energy can be saved by dynamically operating the cooling load according to the practical load of the servers, namely 13% of the total energy consumption can be saved in the dynamic energy saving case (DESC) and 17% in the enhanced dynamic energy saving case (EDESC). The power usage effectiveness (PUE) of the data center can decrease from 1.71 in the original situation to 1.49 in the DESC and 1.42 in the EDESC. By contrast, the frequency of data backup has a heavy impact on the electricity consumption of the data center, while the frequency of computing tasks do not.

    Identification of thermochemical pathways for the energy and nutrient recovery from digested sludge in wastewater treatment plants2019Inngår i: Energy Procedia, Elsevier Ltd , 2019, Vol. 158, s. 1317-1322Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    There are several restrictions and limitations on the emissions and disposal of materials and pollutants related to wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) emphasizing improvement of current processes and development of new methods. Process integration is one way to use all fractions of waste for improved efficiency. WWTPs produces sludge which is usually anaerobically digested to produce biogas and a byproduct called digestate. Digestate is an organic material that contains macro and micronutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium and also contains heavy metals. Digestate is mainly used for agricultural applications because of the presence of nutrients. However, digestate also contains energy in the form of carbon and hydrogen which can be harnessed through various processes and integrated with nitrogen recovery process. This study aims to recover the energy and nutrients from digestate through thermochemical treatment processes. Combustion, pyrolysis, and gasification are assessed and compared in this work. An ammonia stripping method is assumed to recover nitrogen from digestate. The thermochemical processes are heat integrated with ammonia stripping through modeling and simulation. Results show that almost half of the energy present in digested sludge is required for its drying. Moreover, nitrogen recovery also requires much energy. The combustion and gasification of digested sludge give better results than pyrolysis. The heat integration becomes feasible when the auxiliary biogas is also burned along with products from the thermochemical treatment of sludge.

    An analyze of long-term hourly district heat demand forecasting of a commercial building using neural networks2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, s. 3784-3790Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    With the building sector standing for a major part of the world's energy usage it of utmost importance to develop new ways of reduce the consumption in the sector. This paper discusses the evolution of the regulations and policies of the Swedish electric and district heating metering markets followed by the development of a nonlinear autoregressive neural network with external input (NARX), with the purpose of performing heat demand forecasts for a commercial building in Sweden. The model contains 13 input parameters including; calendar, weather, energy and social behavior parameters. The result revealed that these input parameters can predict the building heat demand to 96% accuracy on an hourly basis for the period of a whole year. Further analysis of the result indicates that the current data resolution of the district heat measuring system limits the future possibilities for services compared to the electric metering system. This is something to consider when new regulation and policies is formulated in the future.

    Experimental investigation on drying performance of an existed enclosed fixed frequency air source heat pump drying system2018Inngår i: Applied Thermal Engineering, ISSN 1359-4311, E-ISSN 1873-5606, Vol. 130, s. 735-744Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    As the quick development of industry drying technology, different heat pump drying systems were proposed in recent decades. Enclosed heat pump drying system was considered as the most widely used system. For an existed enclosed fixed frequency heat pump drying system, drying time could be decreased by increasing air temperature at inlet of drying chamber. However, as a fundamental problem, system drying performance influenced by air flow ratio was not tested and reported in open literatures. Therefore, basing on adding an air bypass duct, drying performance of an enclosed system was experimental investigated in this study, with 15 mm thickness fresh carrot chips used. Furthermore, qualitatively and quantitatively comparisons and discussions on experimental results were conducted. A whole drying process were firstly divided into three stages by different water content ratios, preheating stage at 98–100%, fast drying stage at 20–98%, and later drying stage at 0–20%, respectively. For the inlet air temperature of drying chamber is fixed at 40 °C, material drying time for water content ratio reaching 20% could be effectively decreased as much as 42 min, or 15.0%, by the strategy of hot air bypassed. After the drying time shortened, the calculated energy consumption for compressor was also decreased from 4.27 kWh for AFR at 1.0 to 3.63 kWh for AFR at 0.6. Contributions of this study can guide low temperature material drying process. Clearly, system control optimization and energy saving were both expected.

    Cryogenic-based CO2 capture technologies: State-of-the-art developments and current challenges2019Inngår i: Renewable & sustainable energy reviews, ISSN 1364-0321, E-ISSN 1879-0690, Vol. 101, s. 265-278Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    CO2 capture, utilization and storage has been recognized as a primary option to mitigate the issue of climate change caused by the utilization of fossil fuels. Several CO2 capture strategies have been developed, such as absorption, adsorption, membrane, chemical looping, hydrating and biofixation. Among different technologies, particular attention has been given to cryogenic CO2 capture by phase change. The aim of this study is to improve interest in cryogenic technologies for CO2 capture by providing an overview of the actual status of CCS. To reach this goal, the major strategies and technologies for CO2 capture from fossil fuel combustion have been reviewed. Simultaneously, the characteristics of cryogenic technologies for CO2 capture are summarized. The existing challenges that need to be overcome in cryogenic technology include cold energy sources, capture costs and impurities, etc. Finally, opportunities for the future development of cryogenic-based technologies are discussed. The results of this investigation indicated that cryogenic CO2 capture processes can be easily retrofitted to the existing industrial emission facilities and avoid the challenges associated with chemical solvents or physical sorbents.

    Alternative pathways for efficient CO2 capture by hybrid processes—A review2018Inngår i: Renewable & sustainable energy reviews, ISSN 1364-0321, E-ISSN 1879-0690, Vol. 82, s. 215-231Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    CO2 capture and storage technologies have been recognized as the primary option to mitigate the issue of climate change caused by the utilization of fossil fuels. In the last decades, several CO2 capture approaches have been developed, such as absorption, adsorption, membrane, cryogenic, hydrate and chemical looping combustion etc. However, the energy penalty is a general challenge for each technology. To overcome the disadvantages of standalone technology, the combination of two or more approaches (namely hybrid CO2 capture processes) has been considered as a potential option. In this work, the status and development of hybrid CO2 capture processes is presented in a classification of primary technology as absorption-based, adsorption-based, membrane-based and cryogenic-based. The detail configuration of each hybrid process is introduced. Simultaneously, the characteristics, advantages and potential challenges of each hybrid process are also summarized. Compared to the standalone methods, hybrid processes showed the superiority not only in CO2 recovery and energy penalty, but also in the installation investment. Therefore, hybrid processes can be a promising alternative to conventional CO2 capture technologies in future.

    Cost comparison between district heating and alternatives during the price model restructuring process2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 105, s. 3922-3927Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    District heating (DH) has been considered as a resource- and cost-efficient way of supplying heat and a promising method to mitigate climate change, yet it also facing growing competition from alternative technical solutions, such as heat pumps. Many DH companies are under price model restructuring process to enhance their competitiveness. This study investigated the competitiveness of DH among users which would encounter significant cost increase during the price model restructuring process through comparing the cost of different DH price models with three alternative technical solutions. The result shows that for the invested DH user, instead of DH, the most economic preferable choice is to install ground source heat pump combining with direct electrical heating.

    District heating cost fluctuation caused by price model shift2017Inngår i: Applied Energy, ISSN 0306-2619, E-ISSN 1872-9118, Vol. 194, s. 715-724Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    District heating companies are facing multiple challenges nowadays, including increased investment and maintenance cost and critique from customers regarding opaque price model. Hence there is an urgent need to develop new price models. In this paper, a survey was carried out and identified four basic components in the price model. Three price models that represent the current situation and future trend have been extracted from the survey as well. Based on those price models, investigation was performed to study the impacts of different components in price models on customers’ cost. The result shows that customers with flatter consumption profiles can benefit from the price model that has a higher share of load demand component and use consumers’ real-time consumption data for charging. On the contrary, when a price model that has a higher share of energy component is adopted, customers with flatter consumption profiles may experience an increase in the cost.

    Effectiveness of introducing heat storage to repress cost increase2019Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    District heating companies have been adapting their price models to reflect the changes in production cost caused by penetration of renewable fuels, and promote the applications of energy conservation measures that benefit the system efficiency. One of the approaches is to introduce a peak demand component in the price model, which has been proved to be effective to benefit users with lower peak demand. Whereas, this approach also significantly increase the cost for users with high peak demand. One of the measures that could help with high peak demand is installing energy storage on the demand side. In order to understand how the energy storage could change the users’ cost and help DH users to make informed decision, this study analyses the economic benefits of demand-side heat storage, namely if installing low-investment, low-tech, short-term hot-water storage on demand side could effectively repress the cost increase caused by new price models. Five types of building are considered here: multifamily house, commercial building, hospital and social services, industrial building, and office and school. One user of each type, whose costs increased the most during the price model transition process have been included. The result shows that heat storage could efficiently repress the cost increase, and all the investments will be paid back within 3 years, which means introducing heat storage is an efficient measure for cost saving under the circumstances.

    Price models of district heating in Sweden2016Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 88, s. 100-105Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditional pricing scheme of district heating is based on previous experience of system operation. This strategy does not work well under the circumstances of decreasing demand and shifting consumption pattern. Therefore new pricing strategies are needed. To have a comprehensive view on existing price models in Sweden, a price model survey was carried out among all members of the district heating quality system REKO. Four basic price components and multiple variants of them are detected in the survey. The result also shows that most of the district heating companies still use traditional methods and do not consider their customers’ consumption pattern while charging them.

    CO 2 Methanation: The Effect of Catalysts and Reaction Conditions2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 105, s. 2022-2027Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Great attention has been paid to develop non-fossil fuel energy sources to reduce carbon emissions and create a sustainable energy system for the future. Storing the intermittent energy is one of the challenges related to electricity production from renewable energy resources. The Sabatier reaction produces methane from carbon dioxide and hydrogen, with the latter produced by electrolysis. Methane could be stored and transported through the natural gas infrastructure already in place, and be a viable option for renewable energy storage. Current technology for biogas upgrading focuses on removing carbon dioxide from the biogas. However, the biogas could potentially be used directly as feed gas for the Sabatier reaction, thereby removing the cost associated with carbon dioxide removal and increasing the methane yield and carbon utilization from biological sources. Carbon dioxide methanation requires a catalyst to be active at relatively low temperatures and selective towards methane. Nickel based catalyst are most widely investigated, and commercial catalysts are typically nickel on alumina support. Focus on catalyst development for carbon dioxide methanation is predominantly related to support modification, promoter addition, as well as utilizing new class of materials such as hydrotalcite-derived catalysts.

    The effect of temperature and initial methane concentration on carbon dioxide methanation on Ni based catalysts2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 105, s. 2016-2021Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A series of Ni based catalysts prepared by incipient wetness method were characterized by chemisorption and studied for CO2 methanation. Ru had apparently a positive effect on the active metal surface area, and thus the catalytic activity. The CO2 conversion was greatly affected by temperature where the conversion ranged from 12%-85% at temperatures of 300 to 400 oC on the 12% Ni/Al2O3 catalyst. At 350 oC, higher Ni loading resulted in increased activity. The incorporation of 0.5% Ru lead to a drastic increase in catalytic activity, which can be explained by increased reducibility and a synergetic effect between Ni and Ru, and was further enhanced by increased Ni loading. Addition of CH4 at twice the initial concentration of CO2 to the feed gas mixture was found to decrease the conversion from 52% to 48% at 350 oC on the 20% Ni/Al2O3 catalyst, whereas only a slight reduction in selectivity was observed. The results preliminary demonstrate that high methane purity can be achieved from a biogas feed stream over Ni based catalysts.

    Active and stable Ni based catalysts and processes for biogas upgrading: The effect of temperature and initial methane concentration on CO2 methanation2018Inngår i: Applied Energy, ISSN 0306-2619, E-ISSN 1872-9118, Vol. 227, s. 206-212Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    CO2 hydrogenation to methane (CO2 methanation) is gaining increasing interest as a major chemical synthesis process for chemical storage of fluctuating renewable energy and producing synthetic natural gas by providing an effective process for biogas upgrading. In this study, a series of 12 and 20 wt% Ni/Al2O3 catalysts, either unpromoted or promoted by 0.5 wt% Ru, were prepared by the incipient wetness method for the CO2 methanation reaction from a feed of pure CO2 or biogas. The catalysts were characterized by N-2 physisorption, XRD, TPR and H-2 chemisorption. The activity for the 12 wt% Ni catalyst increased continuously in the temperature range from 250 degrees C to 400 degrees C. Increasing the Ni loading and Ru promotion greatly improved the activity of the catalyst. At 350 degrees C, the highest CO2 conversion of 82% and CH4 selectivity of 100% was achieved over the 20Ni0.5Ru/Al2O3 catalyst. Thereafter, methanation of a simulated biogas mixture was investigated over the 20Ni/Al2O3 and 20Ni0.5Ru/Al2O3 catalysts. The results showed that the CO2 conversion and CH4 selectivity were only mildly affected by the feed composition. Furthermore, the stability of the catalysts was similar regardless of the feed composition. This study demonstrates that high purity CH4 can be achieved from a biogas feed over our Ni based catalysts.

    Thermodynamic Analysis of Chemical and Phase Equilibria in CO2 Hydrogenation to Methanol, Dimethyl Ether, and Higher Alcohols2018Inngår i: Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, ISSN 0888-5885, E-ISSN 1520-5045, Vol. 57, nr 11, s. 4081-4094Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    CO2 hydrogenation can lead to the formation of various products, of which methanol, dimethyl ether (DME) and ethanol have received great attention. In this study, a comprehensive thermodynamic analysis of CO2 hydrogenation in binary (methanol/CO) and ternary product systems (methanol/CO with DME or ethanol) is conducted in Aspen Plus by the Gibbs free energy minimization method combined with phase equilibrium calculations. It is demonstrated that product condensation can be utilized to circumvent thermodynamic restrictions on product yield. Significant improvements in CO2 conversion can be achieved by operating at conditions favorable for product condensation, whereas the selectivity is mildly affected. The relevance of the results herein is discussed with regards to recent advances in catalysis and process design for CO2 hydrogenation. Our study highlights the importance of obtaining a thorough understanding of the thermodynamics of CO2 hydrogenation processes, which will be critical for developing potential breakthrough technology applicable at the industrial scale.

    Integration of torrefaction in CHP plants - A case study2015Inngår i: Energy Conversion and Management, ISSN 0196-8904, E-ISSN 1879-2227, Vol. 90, s. 427-435Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Torrefied biomass shows characteristics that resemble those of coal. Therefore, torrefied biomass can be co-combusted with coal in existing coal mills and burners. This paper presents simulation results of a case study where a torrefaction reactor was integrated in an existing combined heat and power plant and sized to replace 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% of the fossil coal in one of the boilers. The simulations show that a torrefaction reactor can be integrated with existing plants without compromising heat or electricity production. Economic and sensitivity analysis show that the additional cost for integrating a torrefaction reactor is low which means that with an emission allowance cost of 37 €/ton CO2, the proposed integrated system can be profitable and use 100% renewable fuels. The development of subsidies will affect the process economy. The determinant parameters are electricity and fuel prices.

    Market Analysis of Natural Gas for District Heating in China2015Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 75, s. 2713-2717Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Natural gas (NG) is expected to be used broadly in China to replace coal in district heating sector in order to reduce air pollution due to coal burning. However, it is difficult for natural gas to penetrate district heating market due to its relatively high cost. In the present study, a market simulation method is proposed to find the marginal conditions and policy to promote natural gas utilization for district heating. In the proposed method, technology improvement, pricing mechanism, carbon tax and user's pricing response are considered. The prerequisite of the market simulation is that the heating expenses of end-users won't increase and the benefit of heat producers won't decrease when using NG to replace coal. Based on the obtained analysis results, gas pricing revolution, heating pricing revolution and carbon tax mechanism are discussed in order to promote the gas-fired heating through market mechanism.

    Abstract [en]

    The significant increase in energy consumption and the rapid development of renewable energy, such as solar power and wind power, have brought huge challenges to energy security and the environment, which, in the meantime, stimulate the development of energy networks toward a more intelligent direction. Smart meters are the most fundamental components in the intelligent energy networks (IENs). In addition to measuring energy flows, smart energy meters can exchange the information on energy consumption and the status of energy networks between utility companies and consumers. Furthermore, smart energy meters can also be used to monitor and control home appliances and other devices according to the individual consumer's instruction. This paper systematically reviews the development and deployment of smart energy meters, including smart electricity meters, smart heat meters, and smart gas meters. By examining various functions and applications of smart energy meters, as well as associated benefits and costs, this paper provides insights and guidelines regarding the future development of smart meters.

    Abstract [en]

    Biogas is experiencing a period of rapid development and biogas upgrading is attracting increasing attention. Consequently, the market for biogas upgrading is facing significant challenges in terms of energy consumption and operating costs. Selection of upgrading technology is site-specific, case-sensitive and dependent on the biogas utilisation requirements and local circumstances. Therefore, matching the technology selected for use to specific requirements is significantly important. This paper systematically reviews the state-of-the-art of biogas cleaning and upgrading technologies, including product purity and impurities, methane recovery and loss, upgrading efficiency and the investment and operating costs. In addition, the potential utilisation of biogas and the corresponding requirements on gas quality are investigated in depth. Based on the results of comparisons between the technical features of upgrading technologies, the specific requirements for different gas utilizations and the relevant investment and operating costs, recommendations are made regarding appropriate technology.

    Marginal costs for district heating2016Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 104, s. 323-328Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    District Heating (DH) is facing great challenges on raising production efficiency and reducing production cost in order to improve its competence. A novel pricing mechanism is an effective instrument to promote the sustainable development of DH systems. Based on the data on the daily dynamic operation of DH systems, this work calculated the practical marginal costs of a DH system, which can serve as the basis for developing a new dynamic pricing mechanism. Two methods, namely setting the price of electricity and entropy drop method were used to allocate the fuel costs in order to calculate the variable cost of heat production. Results show that the dynamics of marginal costs can indicate the increase in the variable costs with the increase in heat production. The calculated marginal costs were further compared with real heat prices. It was found that although heat prices varied with temperature in general, it could not reflect the changes in the technology of heat production, and therefore, could not represent the practical production costs.

    Cryogenic technology for biogas upgrading combined with carbon capture-a review of systems and property impacts2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 142, s. 3741-3746Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    CO2 makes a major contribution to the climate change, and biomass renewable energy and carbon capture and storage (CCS) can be deployed to mitigate the CO2 emission. Cryogenic process for biogas upgrading combined with carbon capture is one of the most promising technologies. This paper reviewed the state-of-the-art of cryogenic systems for biogas upgrading combined with carbon capture, and introduced the status and progress of property impacts on the cryogenic systems with emphasize on phase equilibrium. The existing cryogenic systems can be classified as flash liquefaction system, distillation system, and liquefaction combined with desublimation system. The flash liquefaction system produces biomethane and CO2 in lower purity than the other two systems. Thermodynamic optimization on the flash liquefaction system and liquefaction combined with desublimation system should be done further, and comprehensive comparison between three cryogenic systems needs to be carried out. As to the phase equilibrium, PR EOS is safe to be used in predicting VLE and SVLE with an independent thermodynamic model describing the fugacity of the solid phase. However, the impacts of binary mixing parameter, different EOS models and mixing rules, on the performance of the cryogenic system need to be identified in the future.

    Evaluation of viscosity and thermal conductivity models for CO2 mixtures applied in CO2 cryogenic process in carbon capture and storage (CCS)2017Inngår i: Applied Thermal Engineering, ISSN 1359-4311, E-ISSN 1873-5606, Vol. 123, s. 721-733Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The cryogenic process is used for CO2 purification in oxy-fuel combustion power plant, and multi-stream heat exchanger is one of the most important components. Viscosity and thermal conductivity are key transport properties in the design of plate-fin multi-stream heat exchanger. It is necessary to evaluate the impacts of viscosity and thermal conductivity models on the design of the heat exchanger. In this paper, different viscosity models and thermal conductivity models for CO2 mixtures with non-condensable impurities were first evaluated separately by comparing the calculated results with experimental data. Results show that for viscosity, the absolute average deviation of KRW model is the smallest, which is 1.3%. For thermal conductivity, model developed by Ely and Hanley, with absolute average deviation of 3.5%, is recommended. The impact of property models on the design of plate-fin multi-stream heat exchanger was also analyzed. The thermal conductivity model has a noticeable impact on the plate-fin multi-stream heat exchanger design, and the deviation in design size of heat exchanger by using different thermal conductivity models may reach up to 7.5%. The future work on how to improve the property models was discussed. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

    Impacts of thermos-physical properties on plate-fin multi-stream heat exchanger design in cryogenic process for CO2 capture2019Inngår i: Applied Thermal Engineering, ISSN 1359-4311, E-ISSN 1873-5606, Vol. 149, s. 1445-1453Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Oxy-fuel combustion is one of the most promising technologies for CO2 capture for power plants. In oxy-fuel combustion plants, cryogenic process can be applied for CO2 purification because the main impurities in flue gas are non-condensable gases. The multi-stream plate-fin heat exchanger is one of the most important components in the CO2 cryogenic system. In-depth understanding of the impacts of property on the heat exchanger is of importance for appropriate design. In order to investigate the impacts of properties on sizing the heat exchanger and to further identify the key properties to be prioritized for the property model development, this paper presented the design procedure for the plate-fin multi-stream heat exchanger for the CO2 cryogenic process. Sensitivity study was conducted to analyze the impacts of thermos-physical properties including density, viscosity, heat capacity and thermal conductivity. The results show that thermal conductivity has the most significant impact and hence, developing a more accurate thermal conductivity model is more important for the heat exchanger design. In addition, even though viscosity has less significant impact compared to other properties, the larger deviation range of current viscosity models may lead to higher uncertainties in volume design and annual capital cost of heat exchanger.

    Property impacts on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) processes: A review2016Inngår i: Energy Conversion and Management, ISSN 0196-8904, E-ISSN 1879-2227, Vol. 118, s. 204-222Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The knowledge of thermodynamic and transport properties of CO2-mixtures is important for designing and operating different processes in carbon capture and storage systems. A literature survey was conducted to review the impact of uncertainty in thermos-physical properties on the design and operation of components and processes involved in CO2 capture, conditioning, transport and storage. According to the existing studies on property impacts, liquid phase viscosity and diffusivity as well as gas phase diffusivity significantly impact the process simulation and absorber design for chemical absorption. Moreover, the phase equilibrium is important for regenerating energy estimation. For CO2 compression and pumping processes, thermos-physical properties have more obvious impacts on pumps than on compressors. Heat capacity, density, enthalpy and entropy are the most important properties in the pumping process, whereas the compression process is more sensitive to heat capacity and compressibility. In the condensation and liquefaction process, the impacts of density, enthalpy and entropy are low on heat exchangers. For the transport process, existing studies mainly focused on property impacts on the performance of pipeline steady flow processes. Among the properties, density and heat capacity are most important. In the storage process, density and viscosity have received the most attention in property impact studies and were regarded as the most important properties in terms of storage capacity and enhanced oil recovery rate. However, for physical absorption, physical adsorption and membrane separation, there has been a knowledge gap about the property impact. In addition, due to the lack of experimental data and process complexity, little information is available about the influence of liquid phase properties on the design of the absorber and desorber for chemical absorption process. In the CO2 conditioning process, knowledge of the impacts of properties beyond density and enthalpy is insufficient. In the transport process, greater attention should focus on property impacts on transient transport processes and ship transport systems. In the storage process, additional research is required on the dispersion process in enhanced oil recovery and the dissolution process in ocean and saline aquifer storage.

    Property Impacts on Plate-fin Multi-stream Heat Exchanger (Cold Box) Design in CO2Cryogenic Process: Part I. Heat Exchanger Modeling and Sensitivity Study2017Inngår i: Energy Procedia, ISSN 1876-6102, E-ISSN 1876-6102, Vol. 05, s. 4587-4594Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The multi-streamplate-finheat exchanger is one of the most important componentsin the CO2 cryogenic system. Appropriate design methodology and in-depth analysis of property on the heat exchanger are of importance. This paper, as part I of the two-paper series, presented the design procedure for the multi-stream plate-fin heat exchangerin CO2 cryogenic process. Sensitivity study was also conducted to analyze the impacts of thermos-physical properties including density, viscosity, heat capacity and thermal conductivity.

    The results show that thermal conductivity has the most significant impact and it should be prioritized to develop a more accurate thermal conductivity model for the heat exchanger design. In addition, viscosity has least significant impact but the higher uncertainty range of viscosity may lead to a higher possible deviation in volume design.
