  • Comparing optimization schemes for solving case studies with multiple heat exchangers using high-order pinch point temperature difference methods 

    Brodal, Eivind; Jackson, Steven Richard; Eiksund, Oddmar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-10-21)
    Heat exchangers (HEs) are often modeled using pinch point temperature difference (ΔT<sub>pinch</sub>) methods when optimizing systems with HEs. However, even small inaccuracies in model predictions of HEs will introduce numerical noise that can cause optimization algorithms to fail. A recent study of single HEs suggests that highorder interpolation methods can compute ΔT<sub>pinch</sub> much faster ...

  • A Novel Technique to Mitigate the Overlap-Time Effect in Current Source Inverters 

    Sohail, Umer; Østrem, Trond; Hoff, Bjarte (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-08-31)
    Generally, the current source inverter is considered more reliable than the voltage source inverter due to the presence of inductor as an energy storage element on the DC link, but a disruption in the inductor current could significantly risk its reliability. To guarantee the reliable operation of current source inverter, an overlap time must be added to the gate signals of its switches. This ensures ...
