Catalytic Microreactors for Portable Power Generation by Symeon Karagiannidis

By Symeon Karagiannidis

"Catalytic Microreactors for transportable energy new release” addresses an issue of excessive relevance and elevated complexity in strength expertise. This thesis outlines an research into catalytic and gas-phase combustion features in channel-flow, platinum-coated microreactors. The emphasis of the learn is on microreactor/microturbine suggestions for moveable strength new release and the fuels of curiosity are methane and propane. the writer conscientiously describes numerical and experimental suggestions, offering a brand new perception into the advanced interactions among chemical kinetics and molecular shipping procedures, in addition to giving the 1st designated document of hetero-/homogeneous chemical response mechanisms for catalytic propane combustion. the result of this paintings should be broadly utilized to the economic layout of micro- and mesoscale combustors.

The location of homogeneous ignition (vig), shown with the green arrows in Fig. 4, was determined in both experiments and predictions as the streamwise position where OH levels rose to 5% of their maximum flame values. The OH color-coded bars (ppmv) in Fig. 4 refer to the predictions (the OH-LIF measurements were in the linear regime but absolute concentrations were not deduced). The lower pressure flames exhibited the highest absolute OH levels, which dropped rapidly with increasing pressure. Having established the applicability of the pressure-corrected global step in the previous section, the comparisons in Fig.
