Unlike saturated steam, condensation does not occur in SS so long as the temperature is kept above saturation temperature. This allows for the temperature of SS to fall a little at times without condensation occurring. One of the main attractions of superheated steam processing is that the water evaporated from the product is incorporated into and becomes part of the drying medium. The SS is used to raise the temperature of the product being processed so that the water in it changes state from liquid to gas (steam). Drying is a process which characteristically requires vast amounts of energy to sustain it.
Such an instrument is also called a Peltier device, Peltier heat pump, solid state refrigerator, or thermoelectric cooler (TEC). It can be used either for heating or for cooling, although in practice the main application is cooling. It can also be used as a temperature controller that either heats or cools. This technology is far less commonly applied to refrigeration than vapor-compression refrigeration is. The primary advantages of a Peltier cooler compared to a vapor-compression refrigerator are its lack of moving parts or circulating liquid, very long life, invulnerability to leaks, small size and flexible shape.
Introduction Fuel cells are electrochemical devices. It can convert chemical energy in fuel in to electrical energy directly with high efficiency and low environmental impact. Because the fuel cells are not limited by thermodynamics limitation of heat engines like Carnot efficiency further because combustion is avoided, fuel cell produces the power with minimum pollution. Fuel cells are unlit batteries. The reluctant oxidants in fuel cells are continuously refilled to allow the continuous operation.
Air delivered to the induction- manifold from the turbocharger is subjected to reserve-flow pressure pulsation and turbulence, and results in considerable amount of heat. Now engine power is dependent principally upon the mass of air drawn into the cylinder per cycle, and increasing the charge pressure ratio alone will not permit the maximum quantity of charge to enter the cylinder. In fact, the true measure of power potential is the density of the charge in the cylinder and this relates directly to the temperature of the air charge about to enter the cylinder. The lower the charge temperature at given constant pressure the smaller will be its volume and hence more air charge is able to enter the cylinder. Heat –exchangers of
Solar energy has the potential to reach and benefit the most vulnerable communities, because it is cheaper, faster and safer than conventional power or heat generation. The investment required is comparatively modest; the systems are set up for individual, autonomous use and therefore not dependent on large infrastructure such as distribution grids, which are non-existent in many remote
This is because underground temperatures are more stable than air temperatures everywhere. Also geothermal heat pumps lifetime estimated at around 25 years for inside components and 50 years for ground loop so this lifespan is very important. Furthermore geothermal heat pumps work very silently and when are installed they have very low maintenance cost. Another advantage is that when you decide to sell your property heat pump can add value to your
The Brayton Cycle, as applied to the gas turbine engine, consists of the following four events: Compression Atmospheric air is compressed. Combustion Fuel is blended with the compressed air, and the mixture is ignited, resulting in rapidly expanding hot gases. Expansion The hot gases expand through the turbine section of the engine, producing rotational torque in the process. Exhaust The spent gases discharge to atmosphere after having given up most of their energy to the turbine section The Brayton Cycle taking place in the engine is a smooth continuous process. Compression, combustion, expansion, exhaust and the resulting production of rotating mechanical output power occurs simultaneously and continuously.
Bridgeless Buck Boost converter fed BLDC motor drive is designed to operate in DICM to provide inherent PFC at ACmains.Speed of the BLDC motor is controlled by the single voltage sensor and dc link voltage of the voltage source inverter(VSI). Fundamental frequency switching is given by using the electronic commutation of the BLDC motor which offers reduced switching losses.In BL configuration of the buck–boost converter,elimination of the diode bridge rectifier reduces the conduction losses associated with it. Figure 2. Bridgeless Buck-Boost
Thus, a lowest surface to is obtained, and the engine is having less heat losses and high combustion efficiency. H) Higher expansion ratio Delaying the closing timing of the intake valves effectively separates the compression ratio and expansion ratio, so that the expansion ratio G) Vibration Free As major moving parts, vanes which are counted in little mass and operated symmetrically, the performance of the engine is very smooth. Hence, vibrations are eliminated. I) Limited Parts and Smaller Size J) Self Adapting Sealing System 4. Construction The engine comprises a set of vanes, a couple of rotors which houses a number of small pot-like containers.

Pneumatic actuator Compressor Operating principle A gas or air compressor is a mechanical device that increases pressure of the gas by decreasing its volume. And air compressor is a one specific type of gas compressor. They are similar to pipe as both obeys the same principle to increase the pressure on a fluid and both can transport the fluid through pipes.
