Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program

  1. Active control of the combustion process of small fireplaces with manual fueling

    The topic is focused on the research of the possibilities of active control of the combustion process in small furnaces. In the framework of experimental work, suitable measuring elements will be tested to identify the flue gas composition and the temperature ratios of the combustion process. On the experimental combustion plant, tests of active combustion air distribution control algorithms will be carried out. The theoretical part will include testing of active control on numerical combustion chamber models.

    Tutor: Pospíšil Jiří, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

  2. CFD modeling of combustion fluidized bed

    Thesis is focused on the numerical solution of thermofluid portions running in the fluidized bed of combustion devices using biomass as fuel. Within the theme, attention will be paid to testing various computational models that can be used to describe the fluid layer. On the basis of the available experimental data, modifications of standard models and designs of innovated models will take place.

    Tutor: Pospíšil Jiří, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

  3. Oxycombustion of Biomass Fuels

    The theme is focused on managing and optimizing the combustion process fuels from biomass using oxygen enriched air. The aim will be to describe and to optimize the combustion process with an emphasis on minimizing the formation of gaseous emissions and create a mathematical model of the combustion process. The topic responds to the current issue of optimizing combustion and reducing emission load.

    Tutor: Baláš Marek, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

  4. Solid pollutants elimination

    The emission of solid pollutants is a very current issue of current energetic, where manufacturers and operators of energy equipment are working hard to meet the legislative constraints. During the study the student will study the origin and properties of the particles and the possibilities of their elimination at the establishment or in the secondary equipment. Wet method and barrier filtration will be studed for small boilers and for large energy plant use.

    Tutor: Baláš Marek, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

  5. Thermal Treatment of Alternative Fuels

    The theme is focused on managing and optimizing the process of thermal processing of alternative fuels from biomass and biodegradable waste in the form of combustion and gasification. The aim will be to describe and optimize fuel treatment and optimize thermal processes, with an emphasis on minimizing the formation of undesirable substances, maximize efficiency and create a mathematical description of the process. The theme responds to current demands for energy processing biodegradable waste.

    Tutor: Baláš Marek, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
