    Abstract: The performance of the natural gas supply system has a great influence on the performance of the heavy duty gas turbine. Therefore, the modeling and simulation approach was used to study the performance of the natural gas supply system. First, the main components of the system were modeled based on the modular modeling concept. Next, according to the practical operation data provided by power plants, the setting criterion of pressure and pilot gas/premix gas flow were analyzed by BP neural network. Finally, the pressure, temperature and flow controller based on PID principle were added to the whole simulation model. The steady simulation and dynamic simulation were both implemented in this simulation model. The simulation results approximately conform to the practical operating data, indicating that the model can accurately describe the whole performance of the natural gas supply system.

    Abstract ( 548 )   Save
    Abstract: An experiment was conducted under a lean combustion condition to investigate the influences of highfrequency alternating electric fields of different frequencies on the flame propagation and combustion characteristics of premixed CH4/air mixtures at an excess air ratio of 1.6, room temperature and atmospheric pressure. The results show that the flame is stretched horizontally when a highfrequency alternating electric field is applied to the electrodes. When the voltage virtual value is invariable, the flame stretches more severely with the frequency increasing. Compared with those without the applied voltage, when the voltage virtual value is 5 kV and the frequencies are 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5 and 15 kHz, the average flame propagation speed increases by 43.10%, 53.45%, 63.79%, 74.14% and 84.48%. The maxima of the increase rate of relative combustion pressure are 0.15, 0.21, 0.27, 0.36 and 0.50, respectively. These results indicate that highfrequency alternating electric fields are beneficial to the flame combustion and as the frequency increases, the promoting effect also increase.

    QI Yuanqu,YU Yuefeng
    2016, 50 (04):  496-501. 
    Abstract ( 669 )   Save
    Abstract: A 3D geometry model of a twin screw expander was developed using PROE to measure and analyze geometric parameters such as groove volume, suction port area and leakage area as a function of rotation angle of the male rotor. Then, based on the geometry model, a thermodynamic model was developed using the continuity and energy conservation equation and taking the suction loss, leakage loss and real gas effect into consideration. Based on the model, the mass flow rate through inlet port and leakage path as a function of rotation angle of male rotor as well as the effects of expander inlet parameter and operating parameter on the performance of the expander was analyzed. It is found that leakage in the suction process and the early stage of expansion process is one of the main factors affecting the internal efficiency, leakage through contact line and rotor tiphousing clearance is the main leakage path, and that the increase in inlet pressure and decrease in rotor speed would lead to the increase of leakage mass.

    JIA Hong,ZHANG Peng
    2016, 50 (04):  502-505. 
    Abstract ( 840 )   Save
    Abstract: An experimental system based on a twostage GM cryocooler was built to measure the thermal contraction from 15K to 293 K. The thermal contraction of the material at low temperature was measured by using the strain gauge method. The effects of variation of the resistance and gage factor (Ks) of karma foil strain gauge at low temperature on the measurement were analyzed and eliminated. The experimental thermal contraction of 304 stainless steel was first measured and compared with standard data to verify the reliability of the measurement and to obtain the correction coefficient (η′) of Ks at different temperatures. Then, the thermal contraction of Al6061T6 was measured and compared with standard data, and the maximum deviation is -4.8%, which proved that η′ was reasonable. Finally, the transversal and longitudinal thermal contraction of GFRP (glass fiber weight content of 70%) was measured at different temperatures. The experimental results show that the transversal thermal contraction of GFRP is approximately 1.12 times of the longitudinal thermal contraction in the same temperature range.

    Abstract ( 705 )   Save
    Abstract: In order to study the performance of R22, R410A and R290 in a directexpansion solarassisted heat pump water heater (DXSAHPWH) system, the distributed parameter and homogeneous flow models of solar collector/evaporator and condenser were established, and the lumped parameter models of compressor and expansion valve and the working fluid charge model were built. Besides, a simulation program of a DXSAHPWH system was coded. The comparison indicates that the simulation results are in good agreement with the reported experimental results. The coefficient of performance(COP), collector efficiency and heat power of the DXSAHPWH using R22, R410A and R290 were compared and analyzed at different environmental parameters and operating parameters. The results show that the COP of the R290 system is apparently higher than that of the R22 and R410A system in the DXSAHPWH. The collector efficiency and heat power of the R410A system are slightly higher than those of the R22 and R290 system. In comparison with the R22 and R401A system, the environmental parameter has a greater influence on the R290 system. The variation of compressor speed remarkably affects the R410A system, and the variation of water temperature has a great impact on the R290 system. In addition, the optimum refrigerant charge of the R290 system is 46% of that of the R22 system, and the optimum refrigerant charge of the R410A system is 95% of that of the R22 system.

    Speed Control Modeling of Modular Screw Expander Generation System
    BAO Wenlong,YU Yuefeng
    2016, 50 (04):  521-527. 
    Abstract ( 635 )   Save
    Abstract: A dynamic response model of screw expander was established to study the speed control method of the modular screw expander generation system based on the organic Rankine cycle(ORC). A new method of fixed boundary multisection model was adopted in building the expander model. Because the modular ORC screw expander generation system does not have the steam regulating valve, the engine speed cannot be controlled directly by regulating the steam flow rate. Therefore, an indirectly method for regulating heat fluid flow rate was adopted. When the heat fluid flow rate was regulated, the steam rate and enthalpy changed at the same time. So, two types of physical model was established based on it. A simulation model was established in Matlab and the control model was tested and optimized. The simulation result show that this indirect method to control the speed of the engine is feasible and the steam rate plays a major role in the speed control system.

    Abstract ( 602 )   Save
    Abstract: The general corrosion susceptibility of 310ODS steel was evaluated in 600℃ supercritical deaerated water by weight gain. The sample periods were 100, 300, 600, 1 000, and 1 500 h. The surface oxide film of 310ODS steel was analyzed by using scanning electron microscope (SEM), energy disperse spectroscopy (EDS) and Xray diffractometer (XRD). The results show that a dense oxide film is formed on the surface of 310ODS steel during the early days (300 h) and the corrosion rate decreases rapidly. The oxide film is a doublelayer structure with a dense Crenriched inner layer and a porous Feenriched outer layer. The inner layer becomes uniform and the outer layer does not change with the immersing time. The oxidation process of 310-ODS steel in 600℃ supercritical deaerated water meets the solidstate growth mechanism and Y2O3 in the grain boundaries improves the corrosion resistance.

    Abstract: Experimental investigations were conducted on the performance of the lowswirl multinozzle burner in a gas turbine model combustor. The effect of equivalence ratio and nozzle exit velocity on the dynamic characteristic, exhaust temperature and emission was analyzed. The experimental results show that there are three types of operation mode, ie., stable combustion region, unstable combustion region, and flashback region for the lowswirl multinozzle burner. The multinozzle flames tend to be unstable with the amplitude of pressure oscillation increasing and frequency decreasing when the equivalence ratio is decreased. The flames become stable and the frequency of pressure fluctuation increases when the inlet velocity is increased. NOx emissions for the multinozzle burner show a loglinear dependency on the adiabatic flame temperature and are less sensitive to the flame temperature than those for single nozzle.

    Abstract: A smallscaled acoustic agglomeration test bench was built. Chosing the high intensity ultrasound as the sound source, selecting the aerosol with large amount of ultrafine particles which were produced by combustion as research objects, and using SMPS to measure the number of particles, the influence of initial particles parameters and the acoustic agglomeration periods on the agglomeration efficiency was studied. The results show that the acoustic wave of 20 kHz has some effect on the particles whose diameter range from 10 nm to 487 nm. Within the measuring range, a higher acoustic agglomeration efficiency can be obtained if the acoustic agglomeration acting period is longer. Besides, 18 seconds is an ideal duration under the test condition. If the initial particle diameter in peak concentrations is bigger, the acoustic agglomeration efficiency will be improved with a maximum of 82.4%.The acoustic agglomeration efficiency also has a positive correlation with initial particle concentration. The particles with a diameter in peak concentration often have a better agglomeration efficiency.

The flow resistance for the tube with fins are found increasing by 191.88%,252.01%,333.10%,364.33%,385.51% and 400.43%, respectively. The evaluation index PEC has been introduced for the comparison of six different arrangement angle fins. The results show that the integral average PEC at 45° achieves a maximum value of 1.265 and that when the arrangement angle of fins is 45°, the graphite tubes with internal fanshaped fins has the best thermal and flow performance.

    Abstract: In order to study the effect of hydrodynamic performance on vertical axis tidal turbines, the ANSYSCFX software was used to simulate the yawing motion of two blade vertical axis turbines. Besides, the influence of yawing on energy utilization of the turbine was studied, the thrust coefficient and lateral force coefficient time history curves also were analyzed under different frequency and different speed ratios, and the method of least squares was used to analyze the load of turbines. The results show that compared with turbine only rotating in uniform stream, yawing motions have little influence on energy utilization of the turbine, but it has a great impact on the instantaneous fluctuation amplitude of thrust and lateral force. As the speed ratio and yawing frequency increase, the instantaneous fluctuation amplitude increases, too. The damping coefficient of thrust and lateral force is related to speed ratio but has nothing to do with yawing frequency. Besides, the speed ratio increases, the damping coefficient increases. The results can provide reference for the design of floating tidal power stations.

    Abstract: To reduce the fluidinduced interior/exterior noise in centrifugal pump as turbine (PAT), from the relation between inphase hydrodynamic action and radiated noise, the leaned angle formula of blade in ideal condition was derived, and the noisereduction activecontrol approach was proposed, without affecting the hydraulic performance. The hydraulic performance and interior noise of two types of PATs were compared based on the experiments. After verifying the finite element model of the casing structure, the finite element method/automatically matched layer (FEM/AML) method was used to reduce the exterior noise. The results show that the leaned blade can keep the original hydraulic performance of PAT and reduce the peak value at fundamental frequency and the total sound energy. The efficiency at larger flow rates can be mostly improved by 1.09 percentage point, the Aweighted sound pressure level (OASPL) of interior noise is basically reduced by 0.07% to 3.02%, and the overall sound power of exterior noise is approximately reduced by 11.97% at 110 m3/h.

    Abstract: This paper investigated the adsorption/desorption nonequilibrium characteristics of composite MnCl2NH3 working pair by comparing with the Clapeyron reaction equilibrium curve. The experimental results showed that under the same condensation/evaporation conditions, for the sorption/desorption process of MnCl2NH3 the Clapeyron curves for different sorption molar quantities were different, i.e., the process of nonequilibrium sorption/desorption was controlled by dual variables, rather than a single variable. The results were much different from theoretical Clapeyron curves. To verify the results, the isobaric sorption process of sorbent was tested. The results showed that the adsorption process was in accord with the experimental Clapeyron curves, whereas the serious desorption hysteresis existed especially for the sorption quantity of 4 mol mol-1. By considering the results of desorption hysteresis, the coefficient of performance (COP) and specific cooling power (SCP) of the working pair were analyzed. A comparison of the equilibrium theoretical and the experimental nonequilibrium analysis results showed that the error of conventional theoretical results of COP and SCP reached 25% and 40%, respectively, indicating that the performance analysis of chemical sorption refrigeration processes should be based on the nonequilibrium sorption performance test.

    Abstract: Residual stress induced by riveting process is critical to the fatigue life of riveted structures. In this paper, the principal stress method was employed to calculate the pressure on the surface of rivet hole and the stress between upset head and sheet. The radial and circumferential residual stresses were solved by using the spatial axisymmetric elastoplasticity theory, where the sheets were equivalent to a thickwalled cylinder. The change of residual stresses caused by various process parameters was explained by the analytical results reasonably. The results show that the circumferential residual stress decreases with the increase of the upset head height and the rivet hole diameter. However, the radial residual stress is approximately independent of the two parameters. The distribution of residual stress on the surface of rivet hole along the thickness direction was investigated by using the finite element method. The results indicate that the residual stress on the faying surface is discontinuous. A Cshaped distribution of residual stress was introduced into the surface of rivet hole in the lower sheet. Reasonable process parameters were given for the Al-Li alloy sheets in the automatic drilling riveting process.

    Abstract: Considering the coupled relation between dynamics and thermodynamics, the trajectory and thermal performance of helium gas during the descent stage of high altitude scientific balloons were studied. The thermal model and vertical dynamic model of high altitude balloons were established, including the solar radiation model, the infrared radiation model, and the heat convection model. The trajectory and thermal performance of a balloon during the descent stage were simulated, including height, velocity, and volume and temperature of helium gas, while the variation regularity of parameters were analyzed. The research results show that the superheated phenomenon exits during the descent stage of balloons, state changing of superheated results in the changing of descent velocity, and changing of descent velocity results in the state changing of superheated. The discharge mass of helium gas in the initial stage has an important influence on descent velocity, descent time and superheated state. This paper can provide theoretical reference for design, flight test and application of high altitude balloons.

    Abstract ( 786 )   Save
    Abstract: Due to notable advantages of simplicity and high efficiency, the subspace model identification (SMI) method becomes an attractive modeling approach for flight dynamics of the airplane system. However, because of the nonlinearity in the airplane system, SMI based model identification approaches which are designed for linear systems always generate some modeling errors. To deal with this problem, a novel twostage system identification approach for flight dynamics of the fixedwing airplane system was proposed. An instrumental variable aided closedloop SMI was first adopted to obtain the approximate linear model of the airplane dynamics. Then, an extended state observer (ESO) able to estimate the nonlinear dynamics of the airplane system was constructed using the obtained linear model. Based on the estimates by the ESO, a group of neural networks were trained to identify the decentralized model of the system nonlinearity. Finally, the nonlinear, six degreeoffreedom (6DOF) model of a B747 airplane was applied to system identification test, and the results obtained verify the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

    Abstract ( 968 )   Save
    bstract: Combining with rigid dynamic mesh technique, a new systematic method to calculate combined and single dynamic derivatives was developed taking longitudinal direction as an example. First, the combined derivative was extracted using the differential method by forcing the aircraft pitching to the same angle of attack (AOA) with two identical pitching rates. Then, acceleration derivative were obtained by forcing the aircraft plunging to the same AOA with two constant accelerations. Finally, the angular velocity derivative was identified by the combination of constant pitching and plunging motion. To discuss the evaluation of dynamic derivatives computed using the three CFD methods, two configurations, that is, the stability and control configuration (SACCON) and Finner missile model, were considered. The results presented are in good agreement with the available experimental data which shows that each single derivative has a different proportion of the combined derivative of different geometries. Compared to general CFD methods, the unsteady motions used in the new methods are much simpler and more effective, and the methods can also be used for combined and single lateral and directional dynamic derivatives identification.

    Abstract: The soil deformation induced by excavation behind the retaining wall was analyzed by statistical analysis of the engineering monitoring data and calculation result analysis of the basic model using the finite element method. The spatial distribution of soil deformation was studied in detail, which indicated that Gauss function could be used to describe the spatial distribution of the soil deformation behind the retaining wall quantitatively. A simplified approach for settlement prediction of buildings caused by adjacent excavation was presented combining this study and the study on building deformation response to soil deformation induced by excavation. The study shows that the spatial distribution of soil deformation is not notable in the short side of the excavation and the deformation in the corner of the excavation is much less than that in the middle of the excavation. The stiffness of the buildingshortside has a small impact on the spatial distribution of soil deformation. Based on the statistical analysis of the engineering monitoring data, the simplified approach can be used to predict the building settlement and soil properties taking the construction factor into consideration using empirical coefficient γ. The case analysis shows that the monitoring result and the calculated result obtained by the simplified approach are in good agreement and the simplified approach can be used to predict the building settlement adjacent to the excavation.
