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.

© 2022 Hydrogen Energy Publications LLCInjecting hydrogen into the natural gas network to reduce CO2 emissions in the EU residential sector is considered a critical element of the zero CO2 emissions target for 2050. Burning natural gas and hydrogen mixtures has potential risks, the main one being the flame flashback phenomenon that could occur in home appliances using premixed laminar burners. In the present study, two-dimensional transient computations of laminar CH4 + air and CH4 + H2 + air flames are per...

Global interest in hydrogen as an energy carrier for combustion and fuel cell applications to reduce CO2 emissions is expanding. However, the use of 100% hydrogen in combustion applications is still technologically and logistically immature, necessitating substantial adjustments to infrastructures linked to hydrogen generation, transfer, and conversion. Thus, blending hydrogen is considered as a preliminary approach on this transition. This work investigates laminar flame propagation of natural gas - air an...
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 ...
