1. Wilson, John Andrew. Characterization of a test stand for evaluating performance and qualifying metal media filters under ASME AG-1.

Degree: MS, Mechanical Engineering, 2013, Mississippi State University

The Institute of Clean Energy Technology (ICET) at Mississippi State University was awarded a contract by the DOE to design, fabricate, assemble, and characterize a research grade test stand to assist in the development of ASME AG-1 Section FI Metal Media Filters. The major barriers to completing the code section is development of a test stand for collecting data necessary to specify performance requirements for use and for filter qualification. Currently there is not a test stand capable of performing this testing. Performance criteria for the FI test stand were developed by the Section FI project team and ICET. These performance criteria were used to create a test stand to collect the data necessary to get Section FI balloted and approved. Advisors/Committee Members: Charles A. Waggoner (committee member), W. Glenn Steele Jr. (committee member), Pedro J. Mago (committee member).

2. Smith, Joshua Aaron. Modeling and uncertainty analysis of CCHP systems.

Degree: PhD, Mechanical Engineering, 2012, Mississippi State University

Combined Cooling Heating and Power (CCHP) systems have been recognized as a viable alternative to conventional electrical and thermal energy generation in buildings because of their high efficiency, low environmental impact, and power grid independence. Many researchers have presented models for comparing CCHP systems to conventional systems and for optimizing CCHP systems. However, many of the errors and uncertainties that affect these modeling efforts have not been adequately addressed in the literature. This dissertation will focus on the following key issues related to errors and uncertainty in CCHP system modeling: (a) detailed uncertainty analysis of a CCHP system model with novel characterization of weather patterns, fuel prices and component efficiencies; (b) sensitivity analysis of a method for estimating the hourly energy demands of a building using Department of Energy (DOE) reference building models in combination with monthly utility bills; (c) development of a practical technique for selecting the optimal Power Generation Unit (PGU) for a given building that is robust with respect to fuel cost and weather uncertainty; (d) development of a systematic method for integrated calibration and parameter estimation of thermal system models. The results from the detailed uncertainty analysis show that CCHP operational strategies can effectively be assessed using steady state models with typical year weather data. The results of the sensitivity analysis reveal that the DOE reference buildings can be adjusted using monthly utility bills to represent the hourly energy demands of actual buildings. The optimal PGU sizing study illustrates that the PGU can be selected for a given building in consideration of weather and fuel cost uncertainty. The results of the integrated parameter estimation study reveal that using the integrated approach can reduce the effect of measurement error on the accuracy of predictive thermal system models. Advisors/Committee Members: Rogelio Luck (chair), Pedro J. Mago (committee member), Sergio D. Felicelli (committee member), W. Glenn Steele Jr. (committee member).
