  • Einstein's special and general relativity energy conversion engineering applications

    The mathematical concepts defined in Einstein's special and general relativity in 1905 and the years which followed, are routinely applied to many energy conversion engineering applications which are common today. Because of routine familiarity we have lost sight of the origin of the mathematical concepts. The aim of this paper is to review several applications and relate the mathematical concepts directly to Einstein's original 1905 and later papers. However, the scope of the following summary has been limited to highlighting the bottom-line equations involved in specific engineering applications. The applications are laser internal gyroscope, and solar sail energy conversion. Metric space contraction by gravity, and bending of light rays by gravity are discussed.

  • Simulation analysis of transient piezoelectric properties of PvDF structure for energy conversion applications

    Rapid development of wireless sensor networks and portable electronic devices calls for solutions to self-powered micro-systems. In this work, two models based on polyvinylidene fluoride (PvDF) structure which convert mechanical energy into electric energy is studied via COMSOL Multi-physics simulation. A series of time-dependent transient analyses are conducted and it is observed that strains and output voltages generally follow the changes of applied stresses when the frequency of the applied stress is at 1 Hz. With a fixed frequency, output voltage and short circuit current increase with applied strain and with a fixed strain, the current increase with the frequency while the output voltage remains relatively stable. The theoretical energy conversion coefficient is 14.39% for the cantilever model and 13.23% for the membrane model, which is higher than results of practical experiments.

  • Energy conversion mechanics and power evaluation of compressible fluid in pneumatic actuator systems

    This work discusses the power transmitted by flowing compressed air, called air power in this study. Two processes are discussed to clarify the energy conversion in pneumatic systems. One is air compression where mechanical work is required for compressing air, and another is actuation of an actuator where compressed air is supplied and mechanical work is outputted. It is concluded that air power can be represented by the work-producing potential of compressed air. Furthermore, it is clear that air power consists of two parts. One is transmission power which represents pushing power from the upstream to the downstream of flowing air, and another is expansion power from the work ability of air expansion. It can be seen that expansion power should exist in any compressible fluid. With the success in determining air power, an energy consumption comparison between pneumatic and electric actuator systems is made. It is clear that a pneumatic system is not always less efficient. When holding a load for a long time, a pneumatic system is more efficient.

  • Energy Conversion Efficiency of Electromagnetic Launcher With Capacitor-Based Pulsed Power System

    The stored-to-kinetic energy conversion efficiency of railgun system is investigated by simulation and experiment methods. There are many factors, which might affect the conversion efficiency of the railgun system. These factors include the parameter values of pulsed power supply (PPS), the velocity of armature, the inductance gradient of rail, and so on. To analyze the stored-to-kinetic energy conversion efficiency, a novel electric circuit simulation model for the railgun system is built. The simulation results show that the less resistance, the more inductance of PPS, the more inductance gradient of launcher, and the higher muzzle velocity of armature can improve the energy conversion efficiency of the railgun system. Some experimental results with the 6-MJ railgun system at Beijing Institute of Special Electromechanical Technology are also presented in this paper, which can illustrate the correctness of the analysis and the simulation results.

  • Enhancing the LVRT capability of grid connected wind energy conversion system using Unified Power Quality Controller

    The Unified Power Quality Controller (UPQC) device is an integration of a series active filter and a shunt active filter. The main purpose of a UPQC is to compensate for voltage flicker/, reactive power, and harmonics. It has the capability of improving power quality at the point of installation on power distribution systems or industrial power systems. This paper utilizes the UPQC to enhance the low-voltage ride-through (LVRT) capability of the doubly fed induction generator (DFIG)-based wind energy conversion system (WECS) according to the grid connection requirement. UPQC is applied to protect the system from ground faults, allows fast restoring of generation system steady state characteristics, improves the system power factor, and prevent the system from rotor over-current and dc-link overvoltage.

  • Solar-thermal energy conversion and storage: Conductive heat transfer using bulk graphite

    Concentrated solar power (CSP) highlights the fact that there is substantially more energy in the sun's heat than there is in its light. However, solar- thermal energy conversion and storage systems using CSP are handicapped by challenges associated with storage technologies, especially high pressures and corrosion. In assessing the possibilities for new materials and designs, issues of thermal properties and heat transfer must be considered. While current technologies largely utilise convective heat transfer of liquids, a promising approach is the use of conductive heat transfer with highly aligned graphite in air as the storage material at temperatures les600 degC. Modelling of a small domestic-scale system (4 m diameter concentrator; <200 kg graphite) indicates that, in only 3 h, sufficient heat can be stored to supply 25 % more than is required for a typical 24 h electricity usage cycle, operating at a storage temperature of les420 degC in air.

  • Manufacturing and testing mock-up for commercialization of the ocean thermal energy conversion (50MW) power plant

    The mock-up for a commercial plant of 50MW ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) was manufactured to obtain the basic data for the performance evaluation and optimal design of OTEC plant. EES (Energy Equation Solver) was used to design the mock-up. The basic thermodynamic model for OTEC is Rankine cycle, and the surface seawater and deep seawater were used for the heat source of an evaporator and a condenser, respectively. Input conditions for the cycle design were R-22 as a working fluid, 30% as a turbine isentropic efficiency due to very small capacity. The cycle capacity and performance such as efficiency, heat exchanger capacity, etc. were analyzed on the water temperature heat source. As the cycle analysis, the working fluid mass flow rate was 13.68 g/s and heat source water flow rate for evaporator and condenser were 13.14 and 12.64 LPM, respectively. On the basis of the cycle design, the mock-up was manufactured to get the basic experimental data. The water heat source for the evaporator and condenser was supplied by constant temperature water bath. The result from the basic experiment, when the warm water and cold water were 26°C and 5°C, the power was produced about 28W by turbine-generator. We will experiment the performance of the mock-up with respect to various conditions such as the heat source water temperature and a refrigerant classification, etc.

  • Energy conversion issues for airborne directed energy weapons

    The ability of an airborne directed energy weapon (DEW) to effectively strike a target depends strongly on the ability to develop, deliver, and manage the required energy for the onboard DEW source. The energy flow within various generic airborne DEW systems is examined from power generation to waste heat management. Each airborne DEW system is analyzed by considering the energy flow through an example configuration of generalized DEW system components. The numbers used in the analysis are not representative of any airborne DEW system under development, but simply allow for an illustration of energy flow within a DEW system of advanced power level.
