    • The Application of Integrated Logistic Support Concepts in Energy Project Planning 

      Meher-Homji, C. B.; Polad, F. S. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      With the increase in size, cost and strategic importance of energy projects, a structured approach to planning, design, construction and operation is required. Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) is a management concept ...
    • The Beckett System Recovery and Utilization of Low Grade Waste Heat From Flue Gas 

      Henderson, W. R.; DeBiase, J. F. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      The Beckett Heat Recovery is a series of techniques for recovering low-grade waste heat from flue gas. Until the cost of fossil fuels began rising rapidly, flue gas below 600 F was considered economically unworthy of ...
    • Efficient Light Sources Today 

      Hart, A. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1982)
      This paper reviews new lamp and lighting technology in terms of application and economic impact. Included are the latest advances in High Intensity Discharge systems, energy saving fluorescent lamps and ballasts, and the ...
    • Evaporative Cooling for Energy Conservation 

      Meyer, J. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      The evaporative cooling principle applies to all equipment that exchanges sensible heat for latent heat. Equipment of this type falls into two general categories: (1) equipment for heat rejection, such as cooling towers ...
    • Industrial Plant Objectives and Cogeneration System Development 

      Kovacik, J. M. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      The development of a cogeneration system requires a definition of plant management's objectives in addition to process energy demands. And, these objectives may not be compatible with options that will yield the most ...
    • Metal Hydride Chemical Heat Pumps for Industrial Use 

      Ally, M. R.; Rebello, W. J.; Rosso, M. J., Jr. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      Hydriding alloys are intermetallic absorbent compounds which have the remarkable quality of absorbing very large quantities of hydrogen gas per unit volume of metallic powder. The absorption and desorption of hydrogen are ...
    • Payback Analysis of Energy Proposals 

      Blevins, L. D.; Estes, C. B. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1980)
      Payback analysis of investment proposals is one of the most widely used and often misapplied concepts in industry. Significant shortcomings are inherent to this method, its failure to consider the time value of money and ...
    • Premium Efficient Motors 

      Moser, P. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      Premium efficient motors are available which convert electrical energy into mechanical energy with fewer losses than the more standard motors. The fewer losses in these motors are due to changes in the motor design and ...
    • Smokeless Control of Flare Steam Flow Rate 

      Agar, J.; Balls, B. W. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1979)
      API 931 Chapter 15 is briefly reviewed to outline the importance and problems of smokeless control of refining and petrochemical flare steam flow rate. A unique mass flow meter is described, together with application ...
    • Solar Ponds - What Are They? 

      Anderson, A. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1980)
      Solar ponds can provide low cost solar energy collection as well as low temperature heat storage. Currently there are two types of solar ponds in an advanced state of development in the U.S. Each system uses a different ...
