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...
Analysis of material collected on particles exposed to volatile matter of bituminous coal in a fluidized bed
Vural, H (1997-05-01)
The activity of fluidized bed particles towards the volatile matter of a bituminous coal was analysed by measurement of tar yield and the direct measurement of CO2 concentration in the exhaust gas from the devolatilization of bituminous coal particles in a laboratory-scale fluidized bed reactor. In a third approach, thermogravimetric analysis (t.g.a.) of the fluidizing particles was performed, indicating that calcium-containing particles exhibited the largest weight loss. In a fourth approach, a mass spectr...

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...
Evaluation of an improved code for the performance of AFBCs
Selçuk, Nevin; Oymak, O (1997-03-01)
In a previously developed system model, bed and freeboard models were coupled for the continuous combustion of lignite particles of widely varied size distributions, burning in their own ash in a fluidised combustor. This was modified to incorporate a) a procedure for faster computation of particle-size distributions (PSDs) without any sacrifice of accuracy; b) an energy balance on char particles, for determining temperature variation with particle size; and c) assumption of plug flow for the interstitial g...
