The paper reports the experimental results concerning emissions from 30 kWe commercial micro gas turbine feed with blends of straight vegetable oil with fossil fuel. Both gaseous and particulate emissions were measured at full and partial load for blends 10% v/v and 20% v/v of rapeseed and sunflower oils with JET A1 kerosene. The variations of nitric oxide and carbon monoxide emissions were taken into account to evaluate the combustor behavior at different loads and blends. The effects of the fuel composition on the variations, in terms of concentrations and dimensions, of ultrafine - particulate matter were also evaluated.


Energy consumption, income, and carbon emissions in the United States
Soytaş, Uğur; Sarı, Ramazan (2007-05-15)
This paper investigates the effect of energy consumption and output on carbon emissions in the United States. Earlier research focused on testing the existence and/or shape of an environmental Kuznets curve without taking energy consumption into account. We investigate the Granger causality relationship between income, energy consumption, and carbon emissions, including labor and gross fixed capital formation in the model. We find that income does not Granger cause carbon emissions in the US in the long run...
Experimental investigation on research octane number of liquefied petroleum gas
Keçecioğlu, Ömer Tuğberk; Yozgatlıgil, Ahmet; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
This research presents an experimental study of the Research Octane Numbers (RON) of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) using a modified Cooperative Fuel Research Engine which can run with gaseous high-octane fuels. A comprehensive set of RON data for the LPG compositions that contain propane, n-butane, iso-butane and trace amount of olefins are presented. In order to determine RON of the various samples, the bracketing method that is defined for liquid fuels by the American Society for Testing and Materials (AS...
Optimum daily operation of a wind-hydro hybrid system
Ercan, Eray; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin (2022-06-01)
© 2022 Elsevier LtdDue to the negative effects of fossil fuels on the environment and health, energy supply is shifting towards renewables. The integration of renewable energy systems is challenging due to the intermittent nature of renewables, however this can be mitigated through storage. Uncertainty in electricity prices in spot markets further complicates the operation of these systems. Pumped storage hydropower is currently the most viable form of large-scale energy storage, and operation of renewable ...
Pyrolysis and combustion behaviour of various fuels in oxygen-enriched air and CO2 atmospheres
Yüzbaşı, Nur Sena; Selçuk, Nevin; Department of Chemical Engineering (2011)
Oxy-fuel combustion technology, which is based on burning coal in a mixture of oxygen and recycled flue gas (RFG), is suggested as one of new promising technologies for capturing CO2 from power plants. In this thesis study, the pyrolysis and combustion behaviour of various fuels including imported coal, petroleum coke, two different types of indigenous lignites, olive residue and their blends with different proportions in air and oxy-fuel conditions were investigated by using non-isothermal thermogravimetri...
CO2 injection in carbonates
Izgec, O.; Demiral, B.; Bertin, H.; Akın, Serhat (2005-07-28)
Started as an EOR technique to produce oil, injection of carbon dioxide which is essentially a greenhouse gas is becoming more and more important. Although there are a number of mathematical modeling studies, experimental studies are limited and most studies focus on injection into sandstone reservoirs as opposed to carbonate ones. This study presents the results of computerized tomography (CT) monitored laboratory experiments to characterize relevant chemical reactions associated with injection and storage...
