Department of Energy

Each year Department of Energy organizes traditional scientific conference “Thermal Energy and Technologies”. Department’s employees implement many local and international scientific projects.

Department of Thermal and Nuclear Energy performs theoretical and applied research on the following subjects:

• Interaction between heat and mass transfer processes in two-phase gas-liquid systems

• Transfer of heat and impulse in two-phase foam flows and gravitational liquid film

• Reduction of fuel combustion and emissions during combustion, ways for reduction of formation of nitrous oxide

• Works for development and research of refrigeration compressors

• Processes and equipment for heat transformation

• Research of preservation of energy resources

• Calculation of emergency events, using software packages; their analysis for increase of safety of nuclear reactors’ work

• Peer review of nuclear safety projects, preparation of normative documents

• Research of emissions of volatile organic compounds from oil products in containers

Applied works• Preparation of special municipal plans of heat economy

• Analysis and optimisation of thermo engineering systems of heat supply companies, industrial companies, provision of recommendations for modernisation

• Research of fuel combustion

Research of fuel:

• Determination of humidity, profitability and elemental composition (C, H, N, S) of solid fuel using analyser “Vario EL III”

• Determination of the amount of water, resins and sulphur in liquid fuel

• Determination of flashpoint, kinematic viscosity and saturated vapour pressure

• Determination of cold filter plugging point

• Distillation characteristics of oil products

• Determination of fuel colours using Sailboat device
