Abstract:The ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is attracted attention as one of the promising renewable energy. OTEC uses small temperature difference between surface and deep sea water. Plate-type heat exchangers, or evaporators, are usually used for OTEC to obtain vapor for electric generator. Ammonia is used for OTEC as a working fluid. It is important to improve thermal performance of an evaporator for the OTEC. Channel dimension is one of the important factors to improve heat transfer performance of an evapor… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
