Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program

  1. Elimination of fine particles generated by combustion process

    The topic is devoted to the study of the possibilities of reducing the production of fine and ultrafine particles generated during biomass combustion. The work will include experimental investigation on combustion equipment, testing parameters contributing to limiting particle production and testing measures to capture particles from the flue gas stream. The experimental equipment of the workplace will be used to identify fine and ultrafine particles in the flue gas stream.

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

  2. Health risks of particles emitted by the combustion process

    Within the chosen topic, the study will focus on the identification of particles produced by the combustion process in terms of particle composition and subsequent health risk assessment of individual types of particles. In this context, attention will be paid to particle size, elemental composition, binding of harmful substances on the surface of particles, the retention of particles in the air and the probability of transport of particles from the source to the vicinity of the population.

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

  3. Life cycle assessment of the energy resources

    The work is devoted to the issue of assessing the impact of the use of energy resources throughout the chain of energy transformations. In this work, attention will be paid to the use of fossil resources, renewable resources and prospective energy carriers usable for short and long term energy storage in power to gas systems (hydrogen, methane, etc.). With the support of available model tools, a custom model respecting the local conditions of the Czech Republic will be created.

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
