    Yanju Wei1,*, Shengcai Deng1, Jie Zhang1, Yajing Yang2, Hao Chen3

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.2, pp. 225-235, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2021.012416

    Abstract The aerodynamic breakup of the droplet has been intensely studied in this paper. We aim to establish a unified relationship between dimensionless kinematic parameters such as displacement, spreading diameter, Weber number, time, and so on. The breakup characteristics of the acoustic levitated ethanol droplet are experimentally investigated when exposed to an air jet flow. The breakup phenomenons were recorded with a high-speed camera. The breakup characteristics were analyzed, and the physical models of the moving and transforming behaviors were established to explain the breakup mechanisms. We found that the displacement of the windward side of the droplet follows free acceleration… More >

    Zhiqiang Pan1, Zhiwen Lin1, Kunle Fan2, Cheng Yang2,*, Xiaoqian Ma2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.1, pp. 119-141, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.013585

    Abstract Gas turbine power units, as an effective way to cope with the severe challenge of renewable energy accommodation in power grids, arouse the interest of power enterprises in the deep peak-load regulation performance. Two common alternative load-control strategies including constant turbine inlet temperature (TIT) and constant turbine exhaust temperature (TET) regulations were taken into consideration. To comparatively investigate the part-load performance under these strategies, both mathematical and physical models were set up successively to serve as a validation and complementary to each other. For the mathematical model of compressor with inlet guide vane (IGV), combustor and turbine, stage-stacking method based… More >

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.1, pp. 1-14, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.013572

    Abstract The temperature control in electronic packaging is the key in numerous applications, to avoid overheating and hardware failure. Due to high capability of heat transfer, good temperature uniformity, and no power consumption, heat pipes can be widely used for heat dissipation of electronic components. This paper reports an experimental thermal analysis of different capillary structures for heat pipes. The wicks considered are metal screens, axial microgrooves, and sintered metal powder. The heat pipes are made of copper, a 200 mm length tube and a 9.45 mm external diameter. Working fluid used was distilled water. The devices are investigated in three… More >

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.1, pp. 163-172, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.013410

    Abstract Based on the principles of heat transfer, an oil film model in the engine cylinder was established. Under the condition of cold state, the influence of factors such as engine fuel injection, fuel drop point, cylinder inner wall temperature, and inlet fluid on the oil film is comprehensively considered to establish an oil film quality prediction model. Based on the measurement of the compensation oil quantity in the transition conditions, the variation of the oil film during the transition is analyzed. The experimental results show that the velocity of the airflow in the intake port and the temperature and pressure… More >

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.1, pp. 37-52, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.013349

    Abstract The effects of inlet gas parameters and sloping sidewall angle on the flame structure and combustion limit with and without sidewall were experimentally investigated. Flame height and impact angle were obtained by chemiluminescence intensity analysis of CH* distribution. First, the combustion characteristics of flame with and without sidewall at different equivalence ratios were explored; then, the influence of Reynolds number and inlet gas temperature on flame structure and combustion limit of v-shaped flame with sidewall were analyzed, and the results with sidewall were compared with those without sidewall. Finally, the variation trend of flame parameters with different sloping sidewall angles… More >

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.1, pp. 53-71, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.012381

    Abstract The system impedance instability, high-order harmonics, and frequency offset are main fault characteristics of wind power system. Moreover, the measurement angle of faulty phase is affected by rotation speed frequency component, which causes traditional directional protections based on angle comparison between voltage and current to operate incorrectly. In this paper, a time-domain protection for connected to wind power plant based on model matching is proposed, which compares the calculated current and the measured current to identify internal faults and external faults. Under external faults, the calculated current and measured current waveform are quite similar because the protected transmission lines is… More >
