THE ROLE OF COMBUSTION IN THE FUTURE ENERGY SYSTEM

The energy system has developed in an almost evolutionary manner since the industrial revolution. Yet, the contemporary debate in media as well as in the political arena, seem to be stuck in expressions of opinions that reflect a polarized perception of “best practise”. For example, the historical build-up of the

DONG ENERGY’S BIOMASS CONVERSION STATUS AND PLAN FOR COAL PHASE OUT IN 2023

An overview of DONG Energy’s biomass conversions of existing fossil fuel-fired combined heat and power plants is presented. The power plant Avedøre Unit 2 was converted from oil/gas firing to wood pellet/gas firing in 2003 and fully to wood pellet firing in 2014. The power plants Studstrup unit 3 and Avedøre Unit 1

LARGE-SCALE NUMERICAL SIMULATIONS: PRESENT AND FUTURE ROLE IN FUNDAMENTAL AND APPLIED RESEARCH

In thermal systems for transportation and power generation turbulence and combustion are ubiquitous and very often inextricably coupled processes, down to the smallest scales of continuum mechanics in non-linear fashion. Unfortunately for our environment, sub-optimal technological design together with intrinsic process and equipment limitations cause these widely

MAN ENGINE TEST FACILITY– FROM LAB TO LARGE SCALE LASER DIAGNOSTICS

Two-stroke diesel engines are used for propulsion on larger freight ships due to their unrivalled efficiency and reliability. Refinement of such large-bore two-stroke Diesel engines with reduced pollutant emissions and improved performance will require novel engine designs, just as for the smaller engines. Currently
