Commercialization possibilities of Stirling engine technology for microscale power generation in Sweden (Mechanical Project)

The presented study has evaluated the possibility of commercializing a research project at the Royal Institute of Technologys (KTH) Department of Energy Technology (EGI) in Stockholm, Sweden, where a Stirling engine is used for renewable microscale power generation. The purpose of the study has been to Continue reading

Development and Demonstration of a Diode Laser Sensor for a Scramjet Combustor (Mechanical Project)

Hypersonic vehicles, based on scramjet engines, have the potential to deliver inexpensive access to space when compared with rocket propulsion. The technology, however, is in its infancy and there is still much to be learned from fundamental studies.

Flows that represent the conditions inside a scramjet engine can be generated in ground tests using a free-piston shock tunnel and a combustor model. These facilities provide a convenient location for Continue reading

Simulation and Control System of a Railroad Track Power Harvesting Device (Mechanical Project)

With the vastness of existing railroad infrastructure, there exist numerous road crossings which are lacking warning light systems and/or crossing gates due to their remoteness from existing electrical infrastructure. Along with lacking warning light systems, these areas also Continue reading
