Fields and focus areas
The field of energy and process engineering deals with power production and conversion, transfer and distribution, as well as the end-use of energy both offshore, sub sea and inland. This involves everything from indoor environment and energy use in buildings to oil hydraulics, gas technology , combustion, bio-energy, refrigeration , as well as the thermal processing of foodstuffs.
A selection of research projects
ENCAP : CO2 capture, with a European perspective.
DYNAMIS : CO2 management and profitability in the value chain
BIGCO2 : CO2 ”rinsing” of power plant exhaust.
Current research activities at the Department of Energy and Process Engineering include:
- Thermal power cycles, including CO2 capture
- High-temperature fuel cells
- Heat and refrigeration technology, components and systems
- Natural gas and multiphase flow
- Building automation
- Indoor climate and working environment
- Ventilation technology
- Hydraulics and pneumatics
- Aero and gas dynamics
- Micro-fluid dynamics
- Turbulence physics
