POWERSTEP (Fraunhofer)

POWERSTEP is a €5.2m project funded by the EU Horizon-2020 R&I framework programme “Full-scale demonstration of energy positive sewage treatment plant concepts towards market penetration” The implementation of safe and efficient wastewater treatment systems is essential to satisfy the global water demand, safeguard the environment, protect public health and meet sustainability goals. Energy-positive wastewater treatment […]

PowGETEG project

The PowGETEG project deals with energy recovering at a steel foundry. It aims at generating 1 kWel from exhaust gas between 550 and 700 C. The final system comprises of four 250W TEG channels, each with its MPPT boost converter. All power converters are connected to a 200Ah lead-acid battery and to an inverter for […]

Solid-fuel Stove

Stoves are used in developing countries, remote locations, and for low-cost space heating. The possibility of also using the stove heat to heat water and produce electricity represents an added benefit thus effectively creating a combined heat and power (CHP) system. We have modified a solid-fuel stove to concurrently charge a lead-acid battery with an average of 27 […]

Hot Air System

TCS has built an in-house 10 kW-thermal hot air system to test waste heat recovery systems. The heat flux can be adjusted by phase control and various measurements are logged automatically. This system represents an ideal opportunity to test the complete waste heat recovery systems that we are developing. It is useful to investigate thermal […]
