About the division of Heat and Power Technology
Welcome to the division of Heat and Power Technology! Here you can find primarily information about the research ongoing in the unit. The descriptions of each project can be found by clicking on the Project on the left.
The division of Heat and Power Technology, conducts research in the field of poly-generation (combined production of electricity, heat, cooling, clean water, fuel, etc.), stationary flows and aeroelasticity of turbo machinery, and use of biofuels in gas turbine cycles (gasification and combustion technologies).
Concentrating Solar Power and Techno-Economic Analysis Group (CSP-TEA)
The concentrating solar power (CSP) and techno-economic analysis (TEA) group begun its activities in 2010 at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). The group operates a close-knit group, with 2 professors, 5-6 PhD students and up to around 8 Master of Science thesis students (depending on the academic period).
Activities within the CSP-TEA group are clustered on five key areas:
- High-flux solar gas turbine design and testing,
- High-flux solar Stirling engine design and testing,
- Techno-economic analysis and market studies,
- Thermo-mechanical analysis of solar power plant components,
- Thermal energy storage integration strategies.
