  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Heat Integrated Milk Powder Production

    Walmsley, Timothy Gordon (University of Waikato, 2014)
    Dairy processing is critical to New Zealand’s (NZ) economy producing NZ$13 billion in exports for 2012 while consuming 32 PJ of fossil fuels for process heat. Three quarters of NZ dairy exports are milk powders. This thesis ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
