  • A Seabased wave energy device: An experimental investigation

    Zhu, Haofeng (The University of Waikato, 2020)
    Ocean waves are a largely untapped treasure-house of renewable energy resource, and the potential renewable energy harvested from ocean waves is considerable around the world. Abundant research and development on this field ...
  • Automated retrofit of heat exchanger networks

    Lal, Nathan S. (The University of Waikato, 2020)
    In a large industrial processing plant, a significant amount of process heat is generated using fossil fuels, contributing to New Zealand’s overall greenhouse gas emissions. While New Zealand’s renewable energy sources ...
  • Unified Total Site Heat Integration: Targeting, Optimisation and Network Design

    Tarighaleslami, Amir Hossein (The University of Waikato, 2018)
    Process industries in New Zealand use 214.3 PJ of process heat, of which approximately 65 % is fossil fuels. Despite increasing energy demands, depleting fossil fuel resources, and pressure to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions, ...
  • Carbon Dioxide Emissions Reduction in New Zealand Transport Sector

    Chand, Alvin Vikash (University of Waikato, 2016)
    Carbon dioxide reduction from New Zealand transport sector can be reduced to 1990 levels if a wide range of methods are adopted such as fuel mix, electrification of vehicles and rail, and cycling. A comprehensive analysis ...
  • Vacuum Steam Desuperheating and Condensation: An Experimental Investigation

    Lokhande, Akash (University of Waikato, 2015)
    Steam condensation plays an essential role in supplying and removing heat in many industrial applications, including the energy sector. It therefore is a phenomena of significance that requires deep understanding. This ...
