Brennstoffzellen und Virtuelle Kraftwerke: Energie-, umwelt- und technologiepolitische Aspekte einer effizienten Hausenergieversorgung

Die nachhaltige Nutzung verfügbarer Energieressourcen, deren Möglichkeiten derzeit viel diskutiert werden, beinhaltet auch eine zukunftsfähige Hausenergieversorgung. Eine choice dafür stellen Brennstoffzellen in Minikraftwerken als Heizungsersatz dar, mit denen bei einer koordinierten Kopplung und Steuerung in sogenannten Virtuellen Kraftwerken durch bedarfsgerechte Fahrweise neben einer Grundversorgung auch Nachfragespitzen abgedeckt werden können.

Oxy-fuel combustion for power generation and carbon dioxide (CO2) capture

Oxy-fuel combustion is presently thought of to be one of many significant applied sciences for carbon dioxide (CO2) catch in energy crops. the benefits of utilizing oxygen (O2) rather than air for combustion comprise a CO2-enriched flue gasoline that's prepared for sequestration following purification and occasional NOx emissions.

Urban Energy Transition: From Fossil Fuels to Renewable Power

This compendium of 29 chapters from 18 international locations includes either primary and complex perception into the inevitable shift from towns ruled by way of the fossil-fuel platforms of the commercial age to a renewable-energy established city improvement framework. The cross-disciplinary guide covers quite a number diversified but correct themes, together with: carbon emissions coverage and perform; the position of embodied strength; city thermal functionality making plans; construction potency providers; strength poverty relief efforts; renewable group help networks; facets of loved ones point bio-fuel markets; city renewable strength laws, courses and incentives; techniques in person delivery structures; worldwide city mobility tendencies; implications of clever strength networks and allotted power provide and garage; and the case for brand spanking new local financial platforms and life.

Biofuels for aviation: feedstocks, technology and implementation

Biofuels for Aviation: Feedstocks, expertise and Implementation offers the problems surrounding the study and use of biofuels for aviation, reminiscent of coverage, markets, certification and function necessities, lifestyles cycle evaluation, and the industrial and technical obstacles to their complete implementation.

How can the stress-strain graph for a metal be explained in terms of ions in a sea of electrons? 3. As a metal heats up, what happens to its conductivity? Why? Polymers A simple polymer consists of a long chain of monomers (components of molecules) joined by covalent bonds. A polymer usually consists of many of these bonds, tangled up. This is known as a bulk polymer. Types A bulk polymer may contain two types of regions. In crystalline regions, the chains run parallel to each other, whereas in amorphous regions, they do not.

At this point in the course, it is easy to get bogged down in the complex theories and equations surrounding 'waves'. However, a better understanding of waves can be gained by going back to basics, and explaining what on Earth a wave is in the first place. Definitions A wave, at its most basic level, is a disturbance by which energy is transferred because this disturbance is a store, of sorts, of potential energy. " In some cases, this is easy to answer, because some waves travel through a medium.

Extra nasty question which you won't ever get in an exam) What is the toughness of glass? Metals Metals are constructed from positive ions in a sea of electrons. This explains many of their properties. There are several physical properties of metals you need to know about: Electrical Conductivity Metals consist of positive metal ions in a 'soup' or 'sea' of free (delocalized) electrons. This means that the electrons are free to move through the metal, conducting an electric current. Stiffness The charge between the negatively charged electrons and the positively charged ions holds the ions together, making metals stiff.
