The 4th Low Emission Advanced Power (LEAP) Workshop was held at NETL facility in Morgantown, West Virginia (USA), on 15-18 October 2018. Part of the University of Genoa (UNIGE) personnel, namely Thermochemical Power Group (TPG) members, involved in the Bio-HyPP project attended the event.
The sixth issue of the Bio-HyPP Newsletter presents the project development in the latest months. In particular, the assembly and commissioning of the test rigs carried out by DLR, including both the MGT test rig (real MGT with emulated SOFC) and the SOFC test rig (real SOFC with emulated MGT) are described.
A new full-length paper, based on Bio-HyPP activities, has been published by DLR partners in a special edition of Applied Energy. The paper is titled “Numerical analysis of operating range and SOFC-off-gas combustor requirements of a biogas powered SOFC-MGT hybrid power plant”. The paper investigates the use of biogas of different quality as fuel for […]
Prof. Alberto Traverso, from University of Genoa, attended the ASME Turbo Expo’18 in Oslo, Norway, chairing and presenting at the tutorial session “Introduction to Dynamic Analysis and Modelling of Plant Systems”. The session introduced the audience to the principles behind energy system dynamic behaviour and methods for prediction or simulation and impact on materials. Results […]
The Second Stakeholders’ Vision document (D5.6) is available for download in the Public Document-Deliverables section. The core of the document is represented by the collection and extended analysis of the responses of Stakeholders Group Members performed through a second online consultation, targeting in particular the topics related to the future business model to be applied […]
The fifth issue fo the Bio-HyPP Newsletter presents the improvements achieved for hybrid power plant components. In particular the work carried out by DLR, UNIGE and NETL is presented. DLR investigated theoretically and experimentally the influence of biogas on the auxiliary systems of the SOFC system (reformer and anode gas recirculation device) confirming the suitability of […]
Alberto Traverso, from UNIGE, received the Best Paper Award from the Global Power Propulsion Society for the paper “Gas Turbine Advanced Power Systems to improve SOFC economic viability”, presented at the GPPS Forum 2017, Zurich, Switzerland published in the framework of the Bio-HyPP Project. […]

RINA Consulting (Stefano Barberis) and UNIGE (Prof. Mario Ferrari) attended on behalf of Bio-HyPP consortium the Shape-Energy SandPits event in Turin (Italy) last 6-7th February. It has been an opportunity to promote the project via poster and leaflet and also via interesting scientific communication/dissemination workshop where Bio-HyPP targets and outcomes has been promoted to the […]
The 3rd LEAP (Low Emission Advanced Power cycles) session, organized in Naples during the final day (15th December 2017) of the European Fuel Cell 2017 event, was an important opportunity to disseminate project results and to profitably discuss results and new ideas among the partners. Six works were presented: by University of Genoa (n.1), DLR […]
