Investigation of combustion characteristics of biomass and coal mixtures in a circulating fluidized bed combustor
Varol, Murat; Atımtay, Ayse; Department of Environmental Engineering (2013)
In this study, combustion and co-combustion tests of Bursa/Orhaneli lignite with two biomass fuels (olive cake and woodchips) were carried out in a laboratory scale Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) combustor, 6 m high and 108 mm inside diameter, in order to investigate the effect of excess air ratio (l), secondary air ratio (SAR) and location of secondary air injection along the combustor wall on the emissions. Optimum l and SAR was determined for each test. The flue gas emissions were compared with limits i...
Understanding the role of renewable energy in a rentier state: the example of United Arab Emirates
Atalay, Yasemin; Kibaroğlu, Ayşegül; Department of Middle East Studies (2011)
The overall purpose of this thesis can be put as the search for the prospects of the establishment of a renewable energy paradigm in a conventional example of an oil-rich state. The sample actor of the oil paradigm is chosen as the United Arab Emirates, as it represents the overall character of the Arab Gulf region, as well as being an appropriate example of what is termed as the ‘rentier state’. Within this framework, firstly it is aimed to shed light on the negative impacts of the oil paradigm in terms of...
Comparative Study on Energy Efficiency of WSNs and WMSNs for Surveillance Applications
Kizilkaya, Burak; Ever, Enver; Yazıcı, Adnan (2019-01-01)
The infrastructure required to deliver various "Internet of Things" (IoT) services is expected to be widely available in the very near future for application areas such as Smart Cities, Smart Homes, Intelligent Transportation and Smart Monitoring in the coming decades. In fact, it is expected that the number of devices connected to the Internet will exceed 50 billion by 2020. It is possible to use these infrastructures for environmental monitoring systems, especially for the early detection and prevention o...
Drying of natural zeolite powders in vibrated fuidized beds
Öcal, Cihan; Külah, Görkem; Department of Chemical Engineering (2013)
The objectives of this study were to characterize the fluidization behavior and the drying performance of a vibrated fluidized bed dryer operating with animal feed additive ‘Clinoptilolite’ bed material with a mean particle size of 3 microns, and determine the efficient operating conditions for the drying process. For this purpose, two fully equipped vibrated fluidized bed systems were designed and constructed for the analyses related to hydrodynamic and drying tests, respectively. The hydrodynamic test res...
Modeling of radiative heat transfer in strongly forward scattering media of bubbling fluidized bed combustor with and without recycle
Şen, Özge; Külah, Görkem; Selçuk, Nevin; Department of Chemical Engineering (2017)
Predictive accuracy and CPU efficiency of geometric optics approximation (GOA) and scattering phase function simplifications in the freeboard of lignite-fired METU 0.3 MWt ABFBC Test Rig were tested by applying them to the modeling of radiative heat transfer and comparing their predictions against measurements and benchmark solutions. The freeboard was treated as 3-D rectangular enclosure containing grey, absorbing, emitting gas with grey, absorbing, emitting, non/isotropically/anisotropically scattering pa...
