A group of young scientists of the National University of Shipbuilding named after admiral Makarov for the first time in Ukraine conducted successful research on trigeneration — obtaining of three forms of energy — electrical, mechanical and thermal. Their scientific work is called "trigeneration technologies for stationary and marine energy."
"We had a successful three-generation study — obtaining of three forms of energy — electrical, mechanical and thermal. They focus on the development of energy-saving and energy-efficient technologies, such as in shipbuilding and in the stationary energy sector, "- says one of the authors, Ph.D., associate professor Dmitri Konovalov.
According to him, the scientists set the task to increase the effect of the use of primary fuels in internal combustion engines and gas turbines produced by transforming its energy into other forms.
This development will be of interest to all those who, exploiting the large engine and average power, seeks to minimize the cost of fuel along the way and get additional sources of heat, cold and electricity. The spectrum of applications is vast, from large industrial plants that generate energy for their own needs, power plants and transmission systems to supermarkets and public sector.
"We've been working on this project for a period of 5-6 years. This study allows to obtain energy in three forms — electrical, mechanical refrigeration and air conditioning systems, or heat — for cogeneration systems and heat," — says D.Konovalov.
Trigeneration technology Nicholas authors are interested in companies that specialize in the use of heating systems, air conditioning. Among them — Nicholas's company "Sandora", which belongs to the American "PepsiCo". For the first time, not only in Ukraine but also the CIS, this technology was introduced in the installation of autonomous power, heating and cooling systems. The economic effect of its use by 6 million USD.
Also, these technologies have been used in energy companies such as HP Research and Production Complex "Dawn"-Mashproekt "," Plant "Equator" (Nikolaev), CDB "Coral", SOE CDB "Chernomorets" (Sevastopol). The total economic impact of the introduction of these innovations on these plants amounted to more than 1 million USD.
This work Nikolaev began to show interest and abroad. In particular, became interested in China.
The developers — candidate of technical sciences, associate Dmitry Konovalov, Andrew and Roman Radchenko, a graduate student Rostislav Ryzhkov became the owners of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine award for outstanding achievements in fundamental and applied research.
